about me

Khmer Guide

Hello, My name is Kimleng. I was born in Takéo Province, along the border with Vietnam. Takéo is sometimes referred to as ‘the cradle of the Khmer civilization. In 2000, I moved to Siem Reap, to work as a tuk-tuk driver. Over time, I met many professional photographers from around the world, people who were seeking something more unique and authentic than the well-worn tourist trails. I developed a series of tours throughout Angkor that catered to their particular interests. My curiosity grew as I watched these photographers at work, and I began to practice photography myself. Since 2005, I have been tutored by a number of Western tutors, and have gone on to establish myself as a well-known professional photographer in Cambodia.

I would very much like to share my expertise in both photography and the temples with you. Whether you are a complete beginner shooting in auto or a seasoned photographer, I can assist you. I can show you the best locations, away from crowds, and give you tips on how to capture the magnificent images of my beautiful country. I will be your personal tutor if you need help with settings, compositions, and lighting and I will guarantee that anyone who comes to me shooting in auto will leave using manual or semi-manual modes. I want you to go home not with touristy photos, but with beautiful authentic images to enhance your happy memories of Cambodia.
