In November, I joined a group for a photographic tour of Cambodia with Nathan as our photographic teacher and guide. It was one of the best trips I have been on. Nathan has lived in Cambodia for a number of years and it was clear that he knew the country incredibly well, but not only that, he loved his adopted country and it's people. We travelled off the beaten track and met local people who we would have never met with a standard tour company. Many of the monks, nuns and village folk greeted us with enormous warmth due to the close relationships Nathan has built up over the years. Our trip to Angkor was amazing, Nathan knew the temple complex inside out and guided us to the best sites, sunrises and sunsets (away from the tourist trail) that allowed us to take amazing photographs. Throughout the trip Nathan was a brilliant teacher, patient (especially as I was a hopeless novice!) and gave constant feedback on how to get pictures that I have always dreamed off! I have improved my photography skills (both in learning how to use my camera but also on how to appreciate lighting and composition) more than I ever thought I would. Finally, Nathan was a total inspiration. He is a great photographer with impressive credentials, but more than that his humour, kindness and social conscience meant that we saw and appreciated Cambodia in a way that was more than just taking photographs in an abstract way. Watching him interact and engage with the local people in a way that I would have been too shy to do without his guidance led to more amazing photographs. The whole trip was one I will never forget! If you are in Cambodia, don't miss out on one of Nathan's trips!
