Come see why so many friends come back to our photo tours and workshops, again and again… We offer photo tours and workshops in Angkor (the most popular) and other beautiful and inspiring locations within Cambodia.

Eric d Vries, that’s me… professional photographer, instructor… I have held a camera in my hands for as long I can remember. I have worked as a professional photographer for 25 years after starting as an assistant-photographer during a 2-year study at FotoVakSchool in The Netherlands. I have photographed for a long list of corporations and product manufacturers while working in a photo studio but also did press photography for a couple of newspapers and magazines back in the 90s. For the past seven years I have been instructing photo tours and workshops in Cambodia for my own business Photo Cambodia and also for a number of exclusive travel companies.

My mission is to show you the best spots and locations in Angkor and Cambodia during your photo tour and workshop, by sharing my experience and my knowledge of photography to help you understand your equipment and achieve your goals, and to take you on incredible photo tours and workshops that will inspire you for the rest of your life.
Home base in Cambodia for the last 10 years (after visiting the beautiful country for the first time in April 2000) I live with my wife and three kids in Siem Reap, close the temples of Angkor…

Another Great Review on Tripadvisor...

"Fantastic Learning Experience"
Eric is the man! Very easy to get on with, great fun, incredibly knowledgable and a great teacher, even for those very new to the game and easily frustrated. The whole day was incredibly well planned, his driver picked us up at 5am from our hotel and made our way, he took us to good local stops for food and refreshments and got is everywhere avoiding the crowds for some spectacular photos!

He was also kind enough to give us details of everywhere we had been, as well as details of things we talked about during the day. We will definitely use Eric again, best there is, a great guide and a fantastic photographer.

"What a perfect day - photo tour with Eric"
I found Eric´s tour and workshop here on TripAdvisor and I am so glad that I did!
Being an amatour/hobby photographer I booked my first phototour ever wanting a great tour around Angkor with a professional photographer who could show and teach me more about photography in the middle of a great wonder - the Angkor complex!
Had a full day tour - Eric picked us up at 5:00am heading for sunrise at Angkor Wat.
During our day we also visited Preah Khan, the Terrace of the Leper King, the Bayon temple and a great photoshoot with monks at Prasat Kleang.
Eric knows the complex very well and picked the perfect timing for visiting the different temples. I was very glad that he took us to places less crowded and with few other tourists, making the photo opportunities even better and I could take my time..

Eric was a great teacher - pointing out great objects, creative compositions - thought me to work with the elements, the light and made me thinking in new ways choosing my photo objects.
And not to forget - he was very patient with me - thank you Eric, you´re the best!
We had a great lunch in the middle of the day and cold water was provided for on a very hot day. We returned to our hotel around 4:00 pm after a great day out!
Looking back on that day and at my photos - going on the photo tour with Eric was dollars very well spent!
"Make it darker" has been ringing in my head since this day - AKON Eric!

A day I will remember forever! Highly recommended, you will not regret it!

The cameras I use

Sometimes I get questions from (potential) clients what cameras/lenses I use. Well… look at the picture. I got the Nikon D700 full frame using at the moment only for portrait sessions. The very handy Fuji X100T is mainly for street photography. The Fuji X-Pro 1 (love that camera) with a 10-24mm, 35mm and 60mm I carry in and around the temples and during other photo tours/workshops and last but no least… the analog LEICA M2 with a VOIGTLANDER 35mm/1.4 Nokton.
