"20 years of photographing everything Cambodia from the people, the cities, the countryside to the temples. First time I arrive in Phnom Penh, the capital, was in March 2000 during a 3-months trip to SE-Asia. The plan was to stay only a week because I didn’t know the situation back then. I stayed more than 3 weeks that year and came back almost every year after that until my permanent move in 2007... Here’s just a glimpse of what I have been doing (photographing) all these years in different parts of the country…"

Great workshop, I wish I had more days scheduled with him
A fantastic photography workshop, it was just Eric and myself. His coaching and explanations while we were looking at temples made such a huge impact on how I look at travel photography. Quality over quantity, he encouraged creativity, was great at making my camera understandable and giving helpful reminders of how to get the most from my photos. I will for sure return to Cambodia and will book more time to learn about photography from him

Wonderful experience!
As an advanced amateur photographer who wanted to visit Angkor Wat and the the temples of Siem Reap area, I and my wife signed on to Eric's three day program. We received more than we expected. Of course we visited and photographed the temples.We also visited the countryside villages, markets and monasteries -getting a real "behind-the-scenes" view of life in Calmbodia. Photographing people is a favorite of mine and Eric really gave pointers on techniques to improve my skills in that area. This "tour" was like a class that not only taught me new photo skills but critiqued me just enough to allow me to improve, with the correct balance of praise versus constructive assessments. My wife, who is not into photography, was also thrilled with our tour with Eric and the special places he took us to. Eric is easy to get along with and a very skilled photographer. I would totally recommentd his tour as a unique and special way to tour Cambodia.

A great photography tour with Eric
We spent 3 great days with Eric in Siem Reap on a comprehensive photography tour covering the temples, villages and countryside. I definitely feel that my photography skills have improved a lot, he made me think about light and shadows, and street photography in a completely new way. I would wholeheartedly recommend Eric's tour to anyone who loves photography and wants to take his/her skills to a new level.

Hong Kong Photo Workshop
Just finished a 5 day Photo Workshop with Eric in Hong Kong. It was excellent. Eric was great with the photography instruction and knows Hong Kong well. We went to all his locations and went to more than a few that I wanted to explore. This was my second time using Eric's services. Took his Angkor and Countryside workshops years ago. Eric is great with a camera whether digital or film and knows the angles, light and what is possible and what is not with a camera. You will learn a lot from him. Thanks!
