The 2024 Uzbekistan Photography Workshop has come to a close, and what an incredible journey it has been! This year, we were fortunate to have Tess, Jurgen, Caroline, Michel and Wolfgang as our clients. Tess and Jurgen were returning customers from previous tours with our sister company, Angkor Travel Photography, where we offer captivating photo day tours in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Joining them were three new customers who added a fresh perspective to our adventure. Unfortunately, another member had to postpone his trip to next year Uzbekistan Photo Workshop due to a last-minute broken foot, but the group’s enthusiasm remained undiminished.

Throughout the workshop, everyone pushed themselves beyond their comfort zones, embracing the essence of street photography and capturing the vibrancy of local life. While our focus was primarily on people photography, we also delved into architectural photography during the magical blue hours and golden light moments. The energy and passion displayed by our participants were truly inspiring, and it was a joy to witness their growth and transformation as photographers.

As organizers, we also gleaned valuable insights that will help us enhance the itinerary for next year’s workshop. We aim to create an even more immersive experience that delves deeper into the heart of local communities, moving away from the beaten tourist paths to capture the essence of Uzbekistan in its purest form.

With a brief respite this weekend, I reflect on the wonderful memories created during this workshop. Despite the busy schedule of assisting our participants, I managed to capture a few shots that hold a special place in my heart. It’s moments like these that remind me of the magic of photography and the connections we forge through our shared passion.

Looking ahead, I am excited to welcome Barbara and Darren, regular customers (who already came to Cambodia 3 times), for a private tour in Uzbekistan from Monday 29 April. This serves as a reminder that our workshops can be personalized to suit individual preferences, offering a tailored experience that caters to your unique vision and interests.

To Tess, Caroline, Michel, Jurgen and Wolfgang who made this workshop unforgettable, thank you for your creativity, dedication, and enthusiasm! Your willingness to explore new horizons and embrace the challenges of photography is truly commendable. I have no doubt that our paths will cross again, perhaps in our Cambodia Photo Workshops, where new adventures and photographic wonders await.
