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 Olympus OM-1 with 24-70mm. Since a couple of months I started to use the film camera during street photography sessions and developed the B/W films again after many years by myself in Ilford ID-11.

More Great Reviews...

“Just amazing! Best Photo workshop and tour possible!”

I went around Cambodia with Eric for seven days, from Phnom Penh to Sieam Reap. It was just a dense workshop of street photography, stunning. We went to places I would have never never found and visited if I had been on my own. Eric can teach you the art of photography and especially the art of street photography in a stunningly relaxed way. I had a great great time.
When going to Angkor only, I can only recommend that you try to get hold of Eric. You will find the places also on your own. But you will not be at the best places at the right time. You will miss Eric's inspiration and hidden treasures. And if you are late (or early), you are amongst 100 tourist.
Thank you so much, Eric!
