Angkor Wat, Cambodia – Photo Expeditions

For small groups ranging from 1 to 5 expedition/workshop participants.

We provide personal photo tour services and on location workshops in South East Asia. You let us know what you are looking to do and we will set up the trip for you. We are now based out of Siem Reap, Cambodia and can provide South East Asia photo tours and workshops  led by photographer George Mann.

If you wish to visit the Angkor Temples we would like to suggest scheduling a four day (or longer) stay in Siem Reap. The Angkor area is much larger and the temples more spread out than it appears when looking at the maps, ideally you want to spend at least three days exploring and photographing the temples located in the Angkor Archaeological Park.

Nikon has waterproof cameras. Yes they do but they don’t have interchangeable lenses and most important for me they do not shoot RAW.

Nikon being just as good at the slow teasing reveal of features as Apple Computers, is of course not going to give us a full on waterproof professional camera just yet, but it will definitely be good enough for the next Songkran.
