Eric d Vries, that’s me… professional photographer, artist, 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 eight years I have been instructing photo tours and workshops in Cambodia and Hong Kong.

My mission is to show you the best spots and locations in Angkor, 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 12 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 amazing experience
After having such a great time last year with Eric I decided to book again . This time we went to Banteay Chmmar , Battambang and Pailin . A year has gone nowhere and I still consider myself a novice and again Eric was such a great teacher . Showing me new techniques and encouraging me to be creative . The difference this time we decided to try street photography in Battambang and Pailin . I must admit I was nervous and again Eric encouraged me to just lighten up and go for it . I found my confidence and before I knew it I was interacting with the lovely people of Pailin . It was such a good experience . Something I will not forget . Eric is a great teacher and really knows his skill . He is great with people and very easy going but at the same time pushes you to shoot . I totally recommend Eric to both both novices and experts alike .

Must do if you want the photos of a lifetime
I got the pleasure of spending a day with Eric doing a photo tour and have come back with photos that will last a lifetime and are seriously capable of going into a high gloss photography magazine. The amount I learned from Eric cannot be underestimated. He taught me more than I could have ever imagined and I’ve been able use those skills ever since. I’m really grateful to have had the time to spend with Eric and if you want to come home from a trip in Siem Reap with photos that will only ever bring a smile to your face, book in now. You won’t regret it. My only regret was that I didn’t have time to spend more than one day with Eric!

Amazing Photo Workshop with Eric
If photography is your interest, you will not go wrong taking a workshop with Eric. I took the day tour starting with the Angkor Wat sunrise. Throughout the day, Eric challenged me to improve my compositions (no small task!) and taught me a lot more about using the various settings on my camera. He is an amazing instructor and this is one of the best workshops I have taken. He is patient, instructive and does it all with a sense of humor. I doubt I would have any decent images of Angkor without this tour. I highly recommend him!
