5-Day Angkor Photography Workshop

Join us for a 5-day adventure in Siem Reap and the surrounding areas

Pushed for time? Not to worry. Siem Reap is an unbeatable destination for a short photography workshop. Our 5-day all-action photography expedition takes in the very best of Siem Reap Province, all without losing hours and hours on the road between locations. Marvel at majestic Angkor, from the most supreme of her temples to her best-kept secrets. Lose yourself in a sea of smiles in the city’s sprawling local markets and the remote villages atop the water of the Tonlé Sap lake. Gain privileged access to a country in transition. We do all of this in the best light and with crowd avoidance at the forefront of our priorities. Simply put: There is no better way to see Siem Reap as a passionate photographer.

Dream a Little…

Here’s what we’ll see on our 5-Day Angkor & Beyond Workshop

Day 1: Arrival in Siem Reap

On day one 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 Pagodas

Day two will be spent exploring the wonders of Angkor, including vine-choked Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom, home to the Bayon and her 200+ smiling faces. We’ll also have the unique chance to observe orange-robed monks performing rarely witnessed buddhist rituals at one of the least-known pagodas within Angkor.

 

Day 3: Sunrise at Angkor Wat, Local Market, and “The City on Stilts”

Day three starts with what is arguably the most iconic site in Cambodia: the sun rising over the silhouetted towers of Angkor Wat, her mirror image reflected in the glassy pond at her base. After breakfast, we visit one of the town’s most vibrant local markets. In the afternoon, we take in otherworldly stilted city of Kampong Phluk where we’ll take in an entirely different way of life at this remarkable community on the Tonlé Sap Lake.

Day 4: Buddhist Monastery, Countryside, and Angkor Wat

Day four starts with a visit to a remote Buddhist monastery on the outskirts of Siem Reap. We’ll spend the remainder of the morning exploring a rice-growing region in the countryside where we’ll have the chance to see local people busy in their daily activities. The afternoon will be spent enjoying Angkor Wat in the highly-underrated last light of day.

General Information

Who Our Tours are Designed For

Our adventures are perfect for anyone who loves travel and photography, whatever your level of experience with a camera – the most important thing is enthusiasm. Our tours are specifically designed for photographers and aim to unlock opportunities that wouldn't be open to the casual visitor, all while ensuring that we shoot in the best light, away from the crowds.

Refine your Vision

Mastering photography is a wonderful, lifelong journey;  the objective of our tours is to help you become a better photographer, day by day, so that you not only capture wonderful images of your trip, but that you take away a wealth of new skills that will serve you well for all of your photographic endeavours yet to come. With our expert guidance, you’ll quickly become more familiar with your equipment and refine your vision for incredible imagery without feeling swamped by technical details. You’ll learn how to read light, how to frame a scene, and how to inject the element of story into all of your captures.

Equipment Recommendations

The best camera is the one that's with you! Don't get me wrong, we like a new toy as much as the next photographer, but you really can make incredible images with any setup - an entry-level DSLR/mirrorless and mid-range zoom is really all you need to make the most of best photographic opportunities. Of course you're welcome to bring more, a wide-angle zoom and your favourite prime are always handy, but they aren't a requirement for attendance. Compact cameras are welcome, too. If you can, bring along your laptop so we can critique your photos and also show you a few tips for using Lightroom.

Meaningful Interactions with Local People

You’ll get to meet local people and make meaningful connections, all the while capturing a beautifully intimate portrait of their way of life. Feel free to capture the people we encounter candidly, or we can show you how to break the ice so as to make your camera an asset that creates interesting opportunities like never before.

Expect the Unexpected

Our itineraries are fun and flexible, and flow naturally - each of our photography adventures is unique, with spontaneous encounters and varying light conditions creating different opportunities at every turn.

Small Group Experience

The largest tours we run are for groups of six. With one experienced professional photographer as tour leader, this ensures that each of our participants will get plenty of individual, hands-on time with the instructor. It also means that we can travel in a less conspicuous manner, blending into our environment and not overwhelming local people during spontaneous encounters.

Responsible Travel

We are committed to responsible travel in every country we visit, ensuring that all of our tours are respectful of and give back to the communities we visit. We have taken steps to ensure our tours cause as little environmental impact as possible, and continually strive for new ways to leave fewer lasting footprints in all of our host countries. We use local drivers on all of our excursions, and we take care to educate our tour participants of the ethics of travel photography. We advocate for responsible volunteering and tourism. The participants that join our tours come away not only with some amazing memories and photos, but also with a better understanding of how they can make a positive impact in their future trips.
