Photo Walk – Samdach Sothearos – Sat 25th January

Welcome to 2014! We’re back with a new photo walk for the new year.

This time, we are going to meet at Meta House and walk around a very interesting neighbourhood. We’ll meet up at 4pm upstairs in Meta House and start our walk around 4.20pm. Afterwards we can stop somewhere for food before returning to Meta House where there’s a Kheltica gig and the monthly “Swagger” party.

Who’s welcome?

Everyone! Whether you’ve got a camera phone, a point and shoot, a fancy DSLR, or an old style film camera, all are welcome. Pro or amateur, it matters not. All that matters if that you’re interested in having a wander around Phnom Penh taking some photos.

If you’re interested and need some contact details, leave a comment here and we’ll get in touch.

What do I need?

Very little! Some sort of image capturing device is a good idea (though we’ve had people just come along for the walk) – whether that’s your camera phone, a point-and-shoot, a home-made pinhole camera, a fancy DSLR, or, well, you get the idea. That’s about it!

How will I know who the Photowalk tour is?

There’ll be a bunch of us with camera gear inside/outside the meeting point. As above, drop me a comment if you’d like to get some contact details to help meet up.

Meeting Point Map

We will be meeting upstairs at Meta House on Samdach Sothearos Boulevard at 4pm.

Photo Walk – Olympic Stadium – Sunday 13th October

Hope everyone had a great Pchum Ben holiday! A week later than usual but we are ready for a new photo walk! This time, we are heading over the the Olympic Stadium and its surrounding areas. Thought it would be great to capture the place and the people there before it gets renovated. It’s a lively place during sunset so like last month, we will be heading out in the afternoon, have a good walk and end the night with some food and drinks 🙂

As always, the route is flexible, so let us know if there’s something in the area you’d like to explore.

Very little fortunately! Some sort of image capturing device is a good idea (though we’ve had people just come along for the walk) – whether that’s your camera phone, a point-and-shoot, a home-made pinhole camera, a fancy DSLR, or, well, you get the idea.

Of course, as we’re in monsoon season it’d be advisable to bring a plastic bag which you can stow your camera if heavy rain hits, and probably not a bad idea to have a rain mac (though you can always get these on the roadside in times of need). Otherwise, that’s it!

We will be meeting at 4pm, 13th October, in the lobby of City Mall Shopping Center near the entrance.


Photo Walk – Wat Phnom – Sunday 8th September

It’s time for another photo walk and this time we are heading over to the Wat Phnom area. It’s not an easy/common area to explore if you are not a tourist so we thought it’d be a cool destination to check out if you haven’t been in a while or if you haven’t had the chance to visit it at all.

Afterwards, we will also be stopping by the night market so it’ll be fun to play with different lighting (afternoon and night time) as last month we went early in the afternoon! 🙂 However, the route is flexible as always so let us know if there’s something in the area you’d like to explore.

Photo Walk Phnom Penh – Saturday, 3rd August 2013 – 11am

Hi everyone!

It’s been a long time since we had our last photo walk. I think it’s about time we went on another adventure! Since it’s the first one in a while, we thought we’d go big and head over to the Central Market. It’s pretty intimidating to go alone and take photos so we think it’d be fun to go as a group (if the groups too big, we can always split in two/three groups). There will be plenty of things to photography but if we want to explore the area around the Central Market, the route is completely flexible!

Who’s welcome?

Everyone! Whether you’ve got a camera phone, a point and shoot, a fancy DSLR, or an old style film camera, all are welcome. Pro or amateur, it matters not. All that matters if that you’re interested in having a wander around Phnom Penh taking some photos.

Meeting Point

We will be meeting at 11am at True Coffee Shop inside Paradise Hotel, located on the corner of Monivong and st. 127 near the Central Market.

Photo Walk Phnom Penh – Sunday 4th September 2011

Time for another Photo Walk and this time we’re going to change it up a little bit and see something quite different. We’re going to meet at Naga World, in the lobby lounge (which could prompt some photo taking in and of itself), and from there we’re going to meander down to the banks of the Mekong and jump on a ferry across the river and see what we can find! The ferry is very cheap and only takes about ten or fifteen minutes to traverse the Mekong.

Hope to see you there tomorrow!

Date: Sunday 4th September, 2011.
Meet:
 3.30pm in the Lobby Lounge of the Naga World Hotel
Start: 4pm, outside Naga World.
Route: The route is totally open this time depending on what catches our eyes once we cross the Mekong!

Photo Walk Phnom Penh – Sunday 3rd July 2011

It’s that time of the month – photo walk time! Although it was intended to be a Sunday afternoon walk, we’ve moved it to the morning time as a number of people weren’t available later in the day. Apologies for the late notice on this. Hope you can still make it.

Photo Walk Phnom Penh – 3rd April 2011

Following on from the thoroughly enjoyable first Photo Walk (check out the flickr group to see the results), we’re doing another one (first weekend of every month is the plan). So, this Sunday, 3rd April, in Phnom Penh. Check out the details below!

Date: Sunday 3rd April, 2011.
Meet/Breakfast:
7.00am at Cafe Java – if you don’t feel like breakfast/coffee before we start, just be there at the start time below.
Start: 7.30am, outside Cafe Java
Route: We’re open to following our noses a bit, but the general idea is to head over to Sothearos/Samdach and meander south heading into a fairly interesting little neighbourhood between Norodom and Samdach. From there we’ll go through the Buddhist village/area/temple and potentially, make our way over to BKK market. We’ll see how the photo walkers feel.
