Innovation
Tours are regularly improved based on customers’ feedbacks and scouting trips to give you the best photographic experience. GoPro and e-bikes tours are unique in Angkor and proven to be more and more popular with photographers and videographers.
One photography guide
Some photos tours have a high turnover among photography guides hence the pictures on the website do not always reflect the work and expertise of the available photographers. I personally guide every tour and do not hand it over to an assistant.
Yes of course. For half-day tours, you can bring along up to two persons for FREE. For full days tours prices already include accompanying persons. For e-bikes tours, each accompanying person will have to pay the full participant fee.
Yes but it still will be a private tour as you will all know each other. I have a limit of 3 photographers per group so you can get the maximum out of the day in term of teaching and exploration of the temples. However I can take one or two more photographers if they do not required much instructions.
With the exception of the e-bike tours, we are using a car or a van for the tours. It makes the journey more enjoyable (less dust and heat) and safer than a tuk tuk on the road.
You can use the calendar and booking form to choose your date and I will get back to you within 24 hours by email to confirm your reservation. You can also contact me via LINE or WECHAT (id: angkorphoto) if you have specific questions.
Yes to some extent. Please bear in mind that some of the chronology of temple visits has to be respected to avoid the crowd and to get the best light.
Yes, you can borrow a tripod or a monopod for the duration of the tour free of charge.
Yes, absolutely. I will level with you to make sure you understand aperture, speed, and ISO so that you bring home at the end of the day the best pictures possible.
Yes, absolutely. Using a mirrorless or compact will lead to some limitation regarding depth of field, nevertheless light and composition are the key elements.
During the monsoon season, especially during the month of September, it usually rains everyday but intermittently. Siem Reap receives much less rainfalls than Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Kampot. It is has never been an issue for the photo tours. If the forecast is exceptionally bad, we will try to postpone teh tour.
Yes, absolutely. I have two GoPro black edition at your disposal with different mounts and accessories. Rental is included for those who signed up for Angkor Complete or for the GoPro tour. For the other tours, the rental fee is USD 30.
In each temple, I will bring you to the best spots and some hidden ones that I discovered so you will get unique shooting opportunities. My approach to photography might be different than yours so you will always learn something. If you working on a documentary (still or movie) we can discuss about specific locations related to your project. In 2015, Alex Teuscher, commercial photographer based in Switzerland, did the Angkor Complete tour and his shots were published in the famous blog Petapixel.
Besides the pictures displayed on Angkor Photography Tours website, I regularly update my Instagram feed with the last pictures taken during the tours. A facebook business page is also online. In addition, you can have a look at some of my pictures from India .
Yes we have an mid- level Canon 750D (Rebel T6i) with a EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens you can rent from us at a price of USD 40 a day (free of charge for customers who booked an Angkor Complete tour). This system is ideal to learn photography and has the latest features with live view and touchscreen.
I am currently using a Canon 5D MarkII with few L-lenses as well as a Canon 750D (Rebel T6i). I also use a GoPro4 black edition to create time-lapses and slow motion videos.
