Lovely words by lovely people…

Another great review on TripAdvisor.

We did a full day photography tour and workshop with Eric at Angkor Wat, including sunrise at Angkor, the colours of Preah Khan, the faces of The Bayon, the famous tree roots of Ta Prohm, and details of the Leper King Terrace.

Eric is a genius and a gentleman. What he doesn’t know about photography and the temples is not worth knowing! I could have spent a month with him and not have been bored for a single second!

The knowledge we’ve gained from this experience is a lifetime gift. Eric keeps things simple – there are key camera settings that require tweaking – but after a bit of practice, it just becomes second-nature. He has a high focus on quality over quantity, and taught us how to get the right shot using our camera instead of wasting hours editing after the fact. He encourages creativity, challenges you to think about composition, and provides constructive feedback to help you improve.

His local knowledge is second-to-none. You could spend a week roaming around Angkor Wat and not discover the hidden places that Eric took us to! We learned key skills in different temples, and in the afternoon, Eric took us to a temple off the beaten track and tasked us with capturing three images. We were literally the only people there and had free reign – no tourists getting in the way and ruining our shots!

This was one of the best days we’ve ever had whilst travelling and highly recommend Eric to all.

Thanks Kim and Anthony

Taking the boat…

Yesterday I had a combination photo tour THE WONDERS OF SIEM REAP (half day temples and half day floating village) with a lovely couple from Indiana, US.

This time of year the water level is pretty high so the harbour to take the boat was closer to Siem Reap than expected.

Here just a couple of shots…
