One to Three Day Workshops

Stewart's one to three day workshops are on the art of photographic composition. Each workshop takes place in a unique location that adds to the power and enjoyment of the experience.

Weeklong (or longer) Workshops

Stewart's destination workshops take place at even more exotic locales around the planet – New Zealand, Venice, Cuba, Cambodia, Thailand, and more!

"My goal is to help each group member to develop their own unique style and vision - no matter what level they bring to either the tours or workshops. Because all tour and workshops have limited enrollment everyone is assured of personal attention"

Wondrous Khmer Temple Region

Join American photographer Stewart D Halperin on this 10 day Journey to Cambodia.

We will be joined by St. Louis based photographer Jeff Hirsch who not only will provide his incredible photo prowess, but insight and hands on help with his vast skills on work flow and digital processing.

StewartStarting the trip in Siem Reap throws you right into the heart of the magic of the Khmer Temple region. Upon arrival we will be met by Fin Tes our Cambodian co leader and Siem Reap resident. Fin will astound with his knowledge of the past, present and future of Cambodia and more specifically the Angkor Wat area.

For the next eight days we will be based at the Soma Devi Resort and Spa - a well appointed hotel right in the center of Siem Reap and a fabulous location for walking to the night markets, Pub Street and a host of other attractions.

girlsOn our first day we will dive right into one of the most interesting temple areas - Preah Khan. Built during the 12th Century this temple is partially swallowed by the vegetation that surrounds it- but makes for incredible juxtaposition of the intricate carvings and the power of the roots and vines that have a strangle hold on the temple.

We are also fortunate to have photographer, tech guru, and photo-educator Jeff Hirsch along on our Venice trip this year to provide "after-the-click" expertise in managing the entire digital photography workflow — everything from capture to storage to output. His knowledge and skill in the field of digital imaging will be of great benefit to each and every member of the trip, no matter what their level of experience.

An expert photo-educator, Jeff will show us how Adobe's Lightroom and Photoshop combine to give the shooter an unprecedented amount of control over both the organization and reproduction of photographic images.
