A visit to Banteay Srey with Angkor Wat Photography Tours

Angkor Wat Photography Tours goes Banteay Srey: These images are taken on a photography tour to Banteay Srey: the “Fortress of the Women”. Famous for it´s pink sandstone, it has some of the finest and best-preserved carvings in all Angkor. It´s a bit outside of the central temple area, but it´s well worth the drive. The route goes through scenic villages and a picturesque landscape of rice fields. We have been there very often, so we know the perfect day time to capture this place: the late...

Some impressions from our photography tour to Phnom Kulen

At Phnom (=”mountain”) Kulen was the cradle of the first Khmer empire. The consecrated water from this area became the basis for the later irrigation system that fed the canals of Angkor. Also the stones for the Angkorean wonders came from quarries in this area. The most impressing motifs on this day tour though are provided by nature: huge waterfalls, lush valleys, bubbling sources – what an experience!   It´s a long way through the jungle..   Some places are accessible only if we change to a motorbike, to access...

Photography in rainy season at Angkor Wat

The rainy season in Cambodia makes the traveling more difficult, but it also offers advantages. The places are not so crowded and the nature becomes lush and green; colors of stone, landscape intensify. For photographers it´s the best time of the year!   This young lady controls her obvious beauty in a mirror before posing for photos with tourists. The famous Apsara dancers keep the tradition of Cambodian temple dance alive; they performed already for the ancient kings of Angkor. Their elegance and grace is without...

Images from our last few Angkor Wat temple tours

It is high season in Siem Reap. That means a lot to do… fortunately 😉 Unfortunately, time for blogging and image post-production becomes scarce. But before I start a 4 day tour with a German client I thought I need to do something…. So I took some of the best pictures from the last few weeks, edited them a little bit and here we go, some black and white images of the Angkor temples. The first image is a smiling Buddha from the Bayon temple. The Bayon sits right in the middle of the Angkor Thom temple area and consists of big and...

Sunset at Tonle Sap lake

Angkor Wat Photography Workshops and Tours is not only doing tours to the temples, we also visit some other great places around Siem Reap. One of my recent tours brought me, again, to the great Tonle Sap lake. Tonle Sap is the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia and it is extremely rich in fish (god knows how for how long). The main attraction when doing this tour is of course the village of Kampong Phluk, the village on stilts. We used a boat to reach the village and the scenery is really really great. But there is another main...

The trees of Angkor

One of the most famous things when it comes to the Angkor temples are the trees. We all have seem them in several movies. The most famous one is “Lara Croft – Tomb Raider” featuring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft. And if something is featured in high budget Hollywood movies, it is always worth to take some pictures. But where can the trees be found? Well, most of them are in a temple that is called Ta Prohm. Unfortunately, Ta Prohm is a must for each and every tourist coming to Cambodia. That is why taking a clear shot is...

Tour to the Tonle Sap lake

It was Tuesday 9.30am when  I received a call from one of the guesthouses in Siem Reap. One of their clients saw my brochures at the front-desk and he was interested in taking the tour starting at… 10am. So there was not much time to prepare anything. I called my TukTuk driver, took my camera and headed towards the guesthouse to pick up the client (whose name was Thomas as well). We started the tours at my studio where I explained a little bit about the post production workflow (I know, this should usually be a topic for the end of the...

Most of the pictures I used for this video are known to my frequent visitors, some of them are new. However, I hope you can enjoy the...

Siem Reap by Night

Siem Reap by Night

Night photography is definitely one of the more difficult things when it comes to photography. There are many reasons for that. To name some few, the relatively slow shutter speed, the increased ISO, the large aperture. However, if you know how to master that different parameters, your pictures become outstanding. They present a completely different picture compared to day photography. Colors are much more intense, emotions can be created with ease. And because we from Angkor Wat Photography like it so much, we even created a tour with this...

Tonle Sap Lake Photography Tour

Tonle Sap Lake Photography Tour

This was our first tour to the Tonle Sap lake. I have been there before but did not really know what to expect when it comes to visit this place for business. And to be honest, nothing is different. It was just a great trip with a LOT of superb photographic subjects. The first thing that attracted my eyes was a boat lying in a green meadow. Actually, it was a young rice field. So I guess the boat is left from the last flooding and it will most probably wait there till the next flooding. There is a long channel going all the way from the point...

Tour to the temples of Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat and all the surrounding temples are definitely one of the places one has to visit at least once in a lifetime. Our recent tour started early in the morning, in fact it was 5am, in order to take pictures of the sunrise behind the temples. Our driver Thy is a guy that anyway wakes up early. However, it was not so easy for me and Iulia. Nevertheless, we managed to get it done. After we arrived we found around 500 tourists doing exactly the same thing – shooting the sunrise behind the temples of Angkor Wat. Luckily, we found a...
