Reportage Photography Workshops will hold its next roving workshop in Siem Reap, Cambodia’s fastest-growing town and the jumping-off point for the spectacular temple ruins of Angkor. With a maximum of 12 participants, the 5-day event will provide an opportunity to explore the cultural riches and social dynamism of this exotic corner of the world.

With the world’s most breathtaking ancient ruins on its doorstep, Siem Reap and surrounding areas offer endless photographic possibilities. The town itself has gone from backwater to boomtown in the space of a decade, and traditional Khmer culture coexists with the emergence of a new, hip generation of Cambodians. As well as the vast temple complex of Angkor, nearby are floating villages with traditional stilted houses, the rural beauty of Tonle Sap Lake and the flooded forest of Komplong Phhluk.

Celebrated photographer, artist and filmmaker Stephen Dupont and Documentary photographer  Jack Picone will work in tandem to deliver an immersive, insightful and enriching learning experience.

The workshop’s schedule will be engaging, energising and highly rewarding.

An introductory get-together will be held on the evening of the 6th of Dec. before the workshop’s formal start on the morning of 7th of Dec. Like any working documentary photographer, you will be given an assignment brief to interpret as you wish. (The brief will be announced two weeks before the workshop to provide you with time to research possible topics before you arrive.) The aim is to produce a documentary photo-essay with a striking visual narrative to be shown on the final evening of the workshop on Wednesday, Dec. 11th.

Stephen and Jack will hold one to one and group sessions to supervise, critique and edit participants assignments. Intensive dialogue is promoted on topics such as; photographic composition, portraiture, advanced camera techniques, how to research ideas and tell an original story, how to market a body of work and how to hone your personal style.

Early evenings are peppered with lively discussions concerning the aesthetics, philosophy and politics underpinning photography as a medium and with digital projections of both Stephen’s and Jack’s work and other noteworthy photographers.
