Really sad

I got the really sad news today that Terry, wife of Bruce, passed away last saturday.
We became friends after their first 6-day photo tour with me almost 4 years ago and returned for a 8-day tour last year. Terry fell in love with Cambodia. Her wish was to get a Buddhist ceremony in Cambodia so we will arrange one.

Rest in Peace, Terry. You’ll always be in our hearts.

The White Building

The end of an era… The infamous White Building in Phnom Penh will be put down within weeks. All habitants are compensated and relocated. The White Building was part of my Street Photography sessions in Phnom Penh and I think I’ve been visiting the place with my clients over 25 times the last couple of years.
At the moment I’m selecting out of more than 1500 shots for a series. I’ll keep you updated when finished…

GREAT TOUR AND PHOTOGRAPHY INSIGHT
“My sister and I spent a half day with Eric out at the temples. His simple explanation of camera settings and built in practice opportunities to improve composition were really good and we walked away feeling much more confident in our skills with our cameras. Eric was friendly, helpful and informative (about photography and the temples). it was a great way to spend time at the temples outside of the usual sight seeing. Highly recommend for any budding or enthusiastic photographer.”
Thanks Ruth and Emma
