Angkor Road - Photo Expeditions & Workshops





Individual and Small Group Photography Workshops at Ancient Angkor Temple Sites in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand.

3 Country - 15 Day Angkor Road Expedition - Cambodia - Thailand - Laos

I am working on a long term photography project of the Angkor Empire, it's temples, cities, waterworks and roadways, which spread throughout the modern day countries of Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. Although I have been working on this project for close to 20 years, I have not yet visited all the temple sites, cities, and remnants of the Ancient Angkor Road that are on my list. Since new temple sites and even entire cities are still being discovered, I will probably continue to work on this project for many years to come.

Like most photographers my goal is to produce exhibitions and books, that will leave a lasting record of my work. And like most photographers I now find myself looking for alternative sources of revenue to support my long term projects. Book publishers are no longer interested in financing the production of the material that goes into a "travel photography" book and even reluctant to cover the printing costs, once the photographer has produced the content.

Therefore like many other photographers, I am now offering photography expeditions and workshops, to finance my long term photography projects.

I am currently working out of Siem Reap, Cambodia, so it makes sense for me to offer my expeditions & workshops in this area, but I am willing to travel to any location that is more convenient for my clients, as long as all my travel related expenses are covered, in addition to my workshop & expedition fees.

My Adventure & Photo Tour Philosophy:


Over the last 30 years I have traveled throughout Asia as a photographer for commercial clients, book and magazine publishers, international aid organisations, and self assigned projects. You could say I am a very lucky person, because my work and my play has always been one and the same. Whenever people ask me where I went on my last vacation, I always have to grin and say that I have never taken a vacation, I do not understand the concept.

The journeys I always enjoyed the most were those I took with a group of fellow photographers, exploring the roads that normal tourists and even most veteran travlers never venture down. A key ingredient for photographers being, that you have to have control of your method of transport, so that you can protect your camera equipment at all times. Another key ingredient being that you have to allow for chance and opportunity to decide your final destination.

In practice this means that we travel by road in a Mini-Van or SUV as much as possible, so that we can carry all our camera equipment and personal effects with us. It is also very difficult to tell an airplane, train or boat to park it for a while, so we can take some pictures.

For much the same reason we also specialise in photo tours & expeditions for individuals and small groups of friends. Our experience says that throwing a group of strangers together almost inevitably leads to disagreements, about alternate shooting locations, choice of restaurants, hotels, time tables, etc..

Siem Reap, where the Angkor temples are located is in some ways an outcropping in the middle of the jungle, but it also has a fair number of five star hotels and restaurants. There is also a large selection of low to medium priced hotels, and guest houses ranging from a few dollars a night to luxurious (foreign managed) Bed & Breakfast type establishments. This wide variety of accommodations and restaurants makes it very difficult to offer a single tour package that will satisfy everyone, so we would rather offer advice and connect you directly to the appropriate hotel properties. If you want us to take care of the entire package we can, but will require some guidelines so that we can make you as comfortable as possible.

Personally I like nothing better than sleeping on a smooth teak floor and scooping a few buckets of cold water over my head in the morning, but it takes some time to get used to that way of life. The last thing we want is a bunch of grumpy photographers on the way to a sunrise shoot location. So please be realistic about the level of comfort you require.
