BIOGRAPHY
Dave’s passion for photography started in the mid 1970s while working as a Cartographer in UK. Dave has wide experience of film photography using mainly colour slide and black and white printing. Dave’s early interest in photography was motor sport then landscape and mountains. People became important subjects from the late 1980s when Dave traveled beyond Europe to North Africa and the Indian Sub continent. Having spent 12 years working in digital cartography; he developed an interest in digital photography in the mid 1990s, processing scanned 35mm slides using Adobe Photoshop. An early adopter of the digital SLR; Dave purchased his first digital SLR camera system early in 2003; shortly before moving to Siem Reap in Cambodia in May of that year. Dave Set up Peace of Angkor in 2003; this villa style hotel was a unique haven for photographers. Dave has been organizing photography orientated tours since them with the emphasis on location and getting the best out of available light. Dave has done a lot of hotel photography for brochures and web sites; wrote a regular column “Temple Watch” for Cambodia’s daily newspaper Phnom Penh Post . He is a regular photographer for the Siem Reap Angkor Visitors Guide the most widely read guide book on Cambodia. Dave is currently running Peace Of Angkor Tours; a photo tour co operating in Cambodia,Vietnam and Laos.
