Cambodia Photo Workshop

Join us for a 12-day Classic Cambodia Photography Adventure! Capture the stunning beauty of Cambodia’s ancient temples, lush landscapes, and vibrant culture.

Our Classic Cambodia Photo Workshop takes in the very best of Angkor and beyond! 

Marvel at wondrous Angkor, from the most supreme of the temples to her best-kept secrets tucked away in all corners of the rainforest. Lose yourself in a sea of smiles in the sprawling local markets and other remote villages in the countryside and on the Tonle Sap lake. Bask in the luxuriant green of the rice paddies in planting season (August) or the golden season in the harvesting season (November). Stand in awe beneath towering jungle waterfalls. And gain privileged access to modern Khmer performing artists from daredevil acrobats to mystical apsara dancers.

We do all of this in the best light and with crowd avoidance at the forefront of our priorities.  We are also incredibly lucky to have so many locations right in our doorstep avoiding long drivers just to optimize our shooting time!

Simply put: There is no better way to see Cambodia as a passionate photographer.

Dream a Little…

Here’s what we’ll see on our 12-Day Classic Cambodia Photo Workshop

Day 1: Arrival in Siem Reap

You’ll arrive in the quaint town of Siem Reap, Cambodia, where a member of the Asia Travel Photography team will be waiting to greet you at the airport and help you to your relaxing, boutique hotel. Mingle and make new friends with other like-minded photographers over welcome drinks, before recharging for the adventure ahead.

Day 2: Angkor, Ancient Temples, and Buddhist Monasteries

Day two begins with a bang: The mysterious Ta Prohm temple, packed with monstrous forest growth, at her quietest time of day and when the light is at its softest. The afternoon will be devoted to the colossal walled city of Angkor Thom, home to the iconic Bayon with her 200+ smiling faces. We’ll also have the unique chance to observe orange-robed monks and their unique Buddhist rituals at one of the least-known pagodas within Angkor.


Day 3: Pagodas, Countryside Life, and Floating Village of the Tonle Sap Lake

Our day begins early in the morning with a visit to a Buddhist monastery a few kilometres from Siem Reap where you will have the opportunity to interact with and photograph Buddhist monks going about their daily lives in a village pagoda. In the afternoon, we will visit a floating village on the glassy waters of the Tonle Sap lake. Here you will have the chance to photograph local life on the lake in an incredibly intimate manner as we travel by small rowing boat. Sunset will be enjoyed over the rice fields.

Day 4: Phnom Kulen, Waterfalls, and Buddhist Pagoda

Day four will be spent among the pre-Angkorian findings at Mount Kulen; here we’ll marvel at the towering waterfall, the ancient reclining Buddha at the pagoda at the mountain top, and enjoy a picnic by the river of 1,000 linga. There’s even time for a swim!

Day 5: Local Market and Journey into the Provinces

Day five begins with one of Siem Reap town’s most incredible markets, home to a host of colourful characters and produce unimaginable. We’ll get to grips with both street portraiture and more candid shooting techniques. After lunch, we’ll travel to another rural province and enjoy our first review session, chatting about the images we’ve made so far.

Day 6: Cambodian Countryside Life

We’ll be exploring the beautiful Cambodian countryside in either Battambang or Kampong Thom (depending on the season). Get ready to witness a range of activities from rice farming to noodle-making, and meet ordinary Cambodian people going about their daily lives. This is a unique opportunity to experience the authentic lifestyle of the locals, far from the tourist trails of Siem Reap town.

Day 7: Cambodian Countryside Life

We will dive back into the countryside of Cambodia to discover even more hidden gems. We’ll continue to gain insight into the local way of life and soak up the breathtaking scenery. And when we’re done, we’ll head back to our poolside oasis in Siem Reap to relax and reflect on all we’ve experienced.

Day 8: Angkor Temples and Village on the Edge of the Tonle Sap Lake

Today we return to the ancient city Angkor, where we will discover some of the Park’s best-kept secrets, lost in the jungle where very few people venture. After lunch we visit a village nestled at the edge of the Tonle Sap Lake. Take a boat out to the lake before returning to shoot in the village, where we’ll have the opportunity to experience local life quite unlike anywhere else.

Day 9: Angkor Wat Sunrise and Phare Circus

Day nine starts with what is arguably the most iconic site in Cambodia: the sun rising over the silhouetted towers of Angkor Wat. We ll spend the rest of the morning reviewing our images or relaxing with a cold drink by the pool. Spend the afternoon with privileged access to one of Cambodia’s most exciting modern performances, Phare, The Cambodian Circus; with privileged backstage access we’ll shoot the rehearsal and make-up, and afterwards have reserved VIP seating from which to photograph the show.

Day 10: Countryside of Siem Reap and Remote Angkor Temples

Today we’ll start with a throwback to Cambodia’s troubled past: under the Khmer Rouge rule of the 70’s and 80’s, the people of the countryside had to adapt, with spider hunting first appearing in the country during this time. While not widely practiced today, we have the chance to spend the morning with a spider hunter. In the afternoon we will have the chance to meet young Buddhist novices and photograph them in an intimate environment at an isolated temple.

Day 11: Banteay Srei, Silk Factory, and Angkor Wat

We’ll begin our final day of shooting with the intricate Banteay Srei. Dubbed “The Lady Temple”, it is one the most detailed of all the Angkorian temples, carved into pink sandstone, and still displays many Hindu deities. The remainder of the morning will be spent exploring a local silk factory.  In the afternoon, we’ll round off our trip with one final visit to Angkor Wat, photographing the temple in the underrated warm light of late afternoon. In the evening, we’ll enjoy a farewell meal at a local restaurant.
