Cambodia and Vietnam are a photographer’s delight! Everywhere you look there is something happening, something new you’ve never seen, something joyful or sad or or or…. You get the point. The variety of cultures found within these two countries are vast, each one offering up another photographic opportunity.
Big Sun Photography tours are full of adventure and fun... yes, but not without also getting daily guidance to improve your photography skills. Between the varied subject matter, destinations and daily training from Gene Tewksbury (your guide and photo coach) you can be sure to arrive home with a stunning new portfolio of images and an improved photography skill set that will benefit you for years to come.

Travel Style: Photographers of all skills levels are welcome. In keeping with the Big Sun Photography philosophy, the tour will emphasize responsible travel photography that appreciates local people, their cultures and traditions and encourages a positive impact on the places and people it visits.
We work with the community in all respects using local guides, privately owned lodging (no corporate chains) and locally owned restaurants. We want to keep the money in the countries and communities we visit.
While our itinerary is fully planned in advance on a day to day basis, our time and itinerary within any given day is flexible. This allows us to accommodate for changing situations (weather, local events, closures, etc). It also allows us to modify our time at locations. There is nothing worse on a photo tour than being at an amazing location when things are perfect and being told “it’s time to go” when nobody wants to leave.
