Highly recommended Photography Workshops at the temples of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Bangkok, Hanoi, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Workshops for all levels from the beginner, to the serious amateur, professional photographers and enthusiasts who want to improve their photography skills..

Our photography workshops are an educational experience to help you improve your photography skills. We offer therefore one-on-one time, personal attention and suggestions to improve your skills. We teach you about camera settings (mode, aperture, shutterspeed, ISO), available light, composition, catching the moment. We also shoot during our workshops to show you our examples as part of the training.

The photography workshops come with critique sessions, mostly done halfway and/or at the end of the workshop. It would be handy if you bring a laptop or tablet. If you don’t have a decent camera (one you can adjust settings) you can borrow a Nikon DSLR for free and if you’re new to photography the camera is a perfect entry-level one.

Have a look at my ‘recent works’-page and see the level of my work and the passion I have for photography, digital and/or analog.

Photography workshops at the temples of Angkor,
in Siem Reap, in Phnom Penh, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Bangkok

We believe that a photography 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, Bangkok or Hong Kong, they are about bringing home a memorable adventure. Our high quality private photography workshops are for every photographer from beginner to advanced.

We are proud to offer the best photo workshops in Cambodia and Hong Kong 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 photography workshops in Angkor (the most popular), other beautiful and inspiring locations within Cambodia and in-depth street photography sessions in Bangkok and Hong Kong (sept 2016)


We did a full day photography tour and workshop with Eric at Angkor Wat, including sunrise at Angkor, the colours of Preah Khan, the faces of The Bayon, the famous tree roots of Ta Prohm, and details of the Leper King Terrace.

Eric is a genius and a gentleman. What he doesn't know about photography and the temples is not worth knowing! I could have spent a month with him and not have been bored for a single second!

The knowledge we've gained from this experience is a lifetime gift. Eric keeps things simple - there are key camera settings that require tweaking - but after a bit of practice, it just becomes second-nature. He has a high focus on quality over quantity, and taught us how to get the right shot using our camera instead of wasting hours editing after the fact. He encourages creativity, challenges you to think about composition, and provides constructive feedback to help you improve.

His local knowledge is second-to-none. You could spend a week roaming around Angkor Wat and not discover the hidden places that Eric took us to! We learned key skills in different temples, and in the afternoon, Eric took us to a temple off the beaten track and tasked us with capturing three images. We were literally the only people there and had free reign - no tourists getting in the way and ruining our shots!

This was one of the best days we've ever had whilst travelling and highly recommend Eric to all.
