The cameras I use

Sometimes I get questions from (potential) clients what cameras/lenses I use. Well… look at the picture. I got the Nikon D700 full frame using at the moment only for portrait sessions. The very handy Fuji X100T is mainly for street photography. The Fuji X-Pro 1 (love that camera) with a 10-24mm, 35mm and 60mm I carry in and around the temples and during other photo tours/workshops and last but no least… the analog Olympus OM-1 with 24-70mm. Since a couple of months I started to use the film camera during street photography sessions and developed the B/W films again after many years by myself in Ilford ID-11.

More Great Reviews...

"Shoot like a Pro !"
My photo experience with Photo Cambodia went beyond my expectation. Eric knows all the right and secret place, the right time to go and right people. He is absolutely professional and he s offering his best experience through the day. This was my first experience and already thinking to plan another tour with Eric. You learn or improve shooting and as the same time you discover the Angkor. Do not hesitate, go and shoot with Photo Cambodia... (from tripadvisor)

"Excellent coaching and workshops"
In October Eric worked with me and my daughter to improve our picture making skills. One really learns how to craft the image not just take another snapshot. He gets you into unusual locations and lighting, then teaches you how to capture it and the feeling of the moment.
I've used Eric twice before with great results and will do so again.
I recommend him without any hesitation... (from tripadvisor)

My mission is to show you the best spots and locations in Angkor and Cambodia during your photo tour and workshop, by sharing my experience and my knowledge of photography to help you understand your equipment and achieve your goals, and to take you on incredible photo tours and workshops that will inspire you for the rest of your life.
