Welcome to Photo Cambodia with Eric d Vries
We believe that a photography tour and workshop should be about learning, creativity, exploring and becoming part of the landscape and surroundings you are photographing. We are dedicated to providing professional, hands-on training and instruction in the field. Our instructor ratio helps you archieve the best results possible. Our mission is to create workshop experiences that will keep you coming back for more. Whether you are an advanced photographer, or just started, our workshops and photo tours are designed to help you archieve your goals. These photo tours and workshops are more than bringing back incredible images of Cambodia, they are about bringing home a memorable adventure.
Our high quality private photo tours and workshops are for every photographer from beginner to advanced. No team-up with ‘strangers’. It will be you alone or with friends or family in our small group so that we can maximize the photo space, as well as give hands-on attention to each participant.
We are proud to offer the best photo tours and workshops in Cambodia today. Eric d Vries is a professional photographer and teacher, and is dedicated to your learning, fun and adventure. We want you to get the most out of your photo tour and workshop, so we do everything we can to ensure the best results and your success. 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 archieve 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 9 years (after visiting the beautiful country for the first time in April 2000) I live with my wife and two kids in Siem Reap, close the temples of Angkor…

"Improve your photography skills"
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. (Visited June 2016)
Photo Cambodia in Luxury Travel Guide Edition 2015
Photo Cambodia’s day and multiple photo tours and workshops are operated by Eric d Vries, a professional photographer and Cambodia expert who specialises in capturing the real Cambodia on film, away from the tourist traps and chaotic crowds. With his help, photographers can not only learn to take better pictures, but they will discover that the beautiful landscapes and culture of Cambodia make for the most spell binding photographs.
Based in the Siem Reap area of North-Western Cambodia, d Vries is perfectly placed for a wide variety of photo tours and workshops. Photo Cambodia offers a range of private workshops that are ideal for providing both beginners and experts with high-quality, one-to-one tutoring in the finer points of photography. These personalised workshops concentrate on street, portrait and fine art photography styles. One of the most popular of these private tours is the One Day at the Temples photo tour or workshop, where travellers will have the opportunity to improve their photography in the beautiful Angkor Wat Archaeological Park.
Photo Cambodia also offer a three-hour workshop in post-production and photo editing, tutoring photographers in software such as Adobe Lightroom so that they can get the perfect finish on those hardearned stills.
While Angkor Wat is an incredible setting for photography in the country, Photo Cambodia also offers several tours that are further off the beaten track. These serve to give travellers an unparalleled view of the unseen side of Cambodia, and help them to find spontaneous, unique photography opportunities. Day 2 of the Ultimate Siem Reap Experience takes travellers out to hamlets along the rice fields, scenic country pagodas and floating villages on the Tonle Sap lake. For those who are more interested in urban settings and street photography, the Streets of Phnom Penh Tour takes travellers around the sights of Phnom Penh City, focussing on portraits, architecture, sceneries and details.
However, if travellers wish to really develop their photography skills and take in as much of this wonderful Cambodian region as they can, the Around Cambodia five-day tour/workshop provides an incredible opportunity for discovery. Based around the Tonle Sap lake, this tour will yield a huge amount of high-quality photographs and unforgettable memories of the area, combining practical lessons in composition and light with an exclusive look into day-to-day life in the region.
