Photo tours / workshops led by Eric Devries are educational and hand-on experiences and his goal is to show you the best spots and locations in Angkor, Siem Reap, Kampot and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, during your photography workshop by sharing his experience and knowledge of photography to help you understand your equipment and archieve your goals and to take you on incredible photo tours that will inspire you for the rest of your life.

You'll find information about The Angkor Wat, The Countryside of Siem Reap, The Kampot Tour and more photo tours/workshops here...


"If photography is your interest, you will not go wrong taking a workshop with Eric. I took the day tour starting with the Angkor Wat sunrise. Throughout the day, Eric challenged me to improve my compositions (no small task!) and taught me a lot more about using the various settings on my camera. He is an amazing instructor and this is one of the best workshops I have taken. He is patient, instructive and does it all with a sense of humor. I doubt I would have any decent images of Angkor without this tour. I highly recommend him!"


Photography series made in Cambodia mostly during photo tours and workshops. 20 years of photographing in Cambodia resulted in the overview series ’20 Years Cambodia’. The ‘Khmer Standoff’ series were made during the clash between the Thai and Cambodian army at Preah Vihear temple in 2009. That series were on display at The Chinese House Gallery in Phnom Penh. The book ‘Khmer Land’ was self-published (and still available) in 2015. Prints are available on request of the Angkor Monochromes series early next year.

A small selection of series and collections taken over the last 30 years. From ‘On The Road’ to the latest one ’Color 2016-2018’. Also on the website are excerpts from the finished series 'The Hong Kong Monochromes' and 'Waterscapes/ Wetlands'. Most series are in black and white, the photographer’s favourite. Some recent collections are inspired by the works of the New Topographic Movement from the 70s. At the moment Eric is working on a new series about the changing of the landscape close to his home in Siem Reap.
