About Me

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.

Trip to Bangkok

It has been at least 5 years since I was in Bangkok other than passing through the airport on my way to Cambodia or the UK. Man has it changed from my early recollections. I never did spend much time in Thailand, not really my favourite place. Stayed at The Miami Hotel, a little run down but comfortable and cheap considering it was right in downtown Bangkok.


Maybe I'm spoiled, but I found things, in comparison to Cambodia, expensive, booze, company and in general much more expensive than Cambodia, but they do have infrastructure, great rail system and the place is very clean on the streets, unlike Cambodia.


It was also very hot, the beginings of the hot season, to hot for carrying lots of gear around so I stuck mainly to a Canon 1D Mk IV and a Sigma 12-24.
