Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Angkor Wat and Luang Prabang Photography Vacation

Environment

We only run a couple of photography tours each year and we have a maximum group size of 10, thus keeping the environmental impact of international flights to a minimum. We don’t include flights in our package to allow participants all over the world to make the best and most cost and environmentally effective travel arrangements for themselves (e.g. combining with other trips planned in the same area).
Our Cambodia (Siem Reap) trip has visiting the Angkor sites at the core, which is ticketed for access, and we include these fees in our tour price, thus contributing to their preservation and maintenance.
Our Laos trip takes place in UNESCO-protected Luang Prabang, a town rich in local and social enterprises and craft markets. We include accommodation, shopping and sightseeing activities in our tour that actively contribute to supporting these.
As photographers of many genres including wildlife, we only work with what’s presented to us and we highly discourage any intrusive interaction with animals to provoke a reaction, which we consider an unethical and unfair practice. We guide our students to adopt the same policy.

Community

We purchase our gifts and souvenirs from family businesses, local markets as well as organised local charities promoting welfare of local residents and we never haggle! While doing so, we are very mindful not to inadvertently encourage child labour, as we believe all children should be in schools, not selling on the streets, as hard as the realities on the ground may be. We encourage our photography tour participants to adopt the same practices. This is embedded in our tour structure where we aim to stay and eat local, visit local markets and stay in family-run accommodation.
We actively encourage staying, eating and shopping local, and not using international chains, and we arrange all accommodation, travel and meals accordingly and directly at source inasmuch as possible, to maximise value for both our customers and local providers.
While encouraging our customers to be creative and always seek new points of view and ways of creating images, we actively discourage practicing photography that is too intrusive to either people, nature and wildlife, or which depicts social situations in a way that is derogative, insensitive or offensive.
Our trips are scheduled with the local community benefit in mind, and all attractions and events that we will visit and photograph are supporting the local community through fees or donations, which we include in the price of our trip. We have experience of these locations and we will advise our participants in relation to dos and don'ts to ensure everyone maintains respect and decorum while interacting with locals especially around religious locations and rituals.
