- Sok Sobi. I enjoy taking pictures of people and places, particular interest in Landscape, People and Travel photography. Pictures and stories that bring Social Awareness and the potential for long term social change or policy are important to me. I use Canon Digital Cameras (EOS 1Ds,1D Mk1,2,4 plus Powershot G11) with a selection of Canon lenses, the 24-105 IS f4L being my favourite at present. I use Lightroom & Photoshop Elements to edit my work. Canon equipment and lenses give me just what I need, reliability and high IQ. I am now living and working in Cambodia, South East Asia, using Phnom Penh as a base to explore the region. I publish stories that are important to me on my blog but always try to give a balanced picture.

The continued downturn in the Global economy is having a definite effect on the apparent numbers of tourist spending their money in Cambodia. Traditionally this is a slow time of the year for tourism but you talk to those who know, the traders,motodops and working girls and they all say the same thing, NO TOURISTS. The problem for tourist is that although when you actually get to Cambodia its very cheap, getting here, at present, is expensive due to the rise in the price oil and its consequent effect on air travel.
