Professional Photography Workshop for Asian Photographers


It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision not to hold the Angkor Photo Workshops this year. 

Against our most optimistic hopes, the ongoing travel restrictions and need to prioritise the health and safety of our attendees makes it impossible for us to provide our participants with quality workshop experience that participants from all over Asia have come to expect from our professional workshops.

We are so grateful to the 359 photographers from across Asia who took the time to apply for our workshops. All applicants have been informed by email, and their applications will automatically carry over to 2021. 

Our festival will continue in November as announced, but like so many other public festivals around the world, we will be adapting our programme to bring as much of it to our audiences who are unable to be with us in Siem Reap.

Are you an Asian photographer looking to challenge your relationship with your craft while developing your visual storytelling skills? 

The Angkor Photo Workshops is an annual tuition-free professional workshop for Asian photographers. The workshop experience aims to nurture each individual’s unique vision and approach to the medium of photography. 

We support all forms of storytelling, and our workshops are open to all photographers of Asian nationality, with no age limit. 

Through our open call for applications, 30 participants from across Asia will be selected by our tutors to join the intensive workshop in Siem Reap, Cambodia. 

We are grateful to have as tutors renowned professional photographers who volunteer their time and expertise to be a part of this educational initiative and experience. Find out who the 2020 Tutors are here.

Participants will rise to the challenge of completing a photo story each during the workshops. You will be guided by your tutor through all the stages – conceptualising the story, refining your personal approach, improving your technique, and the final important step of editing. 

Our workshop is a challenging experience. All participants are expected to be motivated, hungry to learn, and prepared for hard work. You will be pushed to their limits physically, mentally and emotionally. We are not a place to compete and win, but rather, a space to support each other and to discover vulnerability and honesty. Find your focus, build your confidence and commit to the rigor that the craft demands. 

We believe in diversity and originality, and want to help you develop your own unique photographic style and vision. Our goal is to help students in their practice of the medium with respect to their individual interests and ambitions so as to fulfill their potential to be autonomous creators rather than being consumers of photography. 

Application is free and done via our online form.
