APF Canon Workshop Update

In November 2011 I had the great privilege to lead the new Angkor Photo Festival workshop sponsored by Canon. I spent two days with a group of emerging photographers who were selected for the workshop by Canon’s representatives in Phnom Penh. The 7 students were winners of a photo contest conducted in the capital city.

We met at the downtown Siem Reap location of Art Deli Cafe where I gave a slideshow talk about my own work, how I came to photography and how I make ends meet. Then I reviewed the work of each student, giving specific advice to each, talking about some of the common pitfalls of constructing an image, and examined different professional avenues each might want to pursue.

It was a great pleasure to return to teaching and it’s always an advantage to have students who are passionate about the subject at hand. 

Below are a couple examples of my students’ work and a short bio they provided…

My name is Miller. I used to join Canon Marathon Contest and Melon Rouge Contest In Cambodia. In this both contest I got number 1 and moreover via internet I used to join a landscape contest 2500 members. They chose 10 members and then I got number 5. That’s all !!
I’m an english teacher at the university here in Phnom Penh. I use photography to express my emotions and to appreciate beauty. I’ve been in Cambodia for 4 years. Been into photography for almost 2 years. I want to concentrate on photojournalism. Arvin Mamhot.
