Asia Motion is Cambodia’s first photographers and videographer agency.

between several local and international photographers, who cover current events in
the entire South East Asian region.
From very different horizons, these professional photographers and journalists have a
common desire: portraying through photography the evolution of South East Asia.
The particular flavors, the economic dynamism and the fascinating cultural and social heritage
from this part of the world are, amongst others, the focal interests of
Asia Motionâ€™s photographers.
The heart of Asia Motion is in Cambodia, as our team is
greatly linked and touched by the past and current events in
Oppressed by a sadly infamous regime, the Cambodian population
has demonstrated an extraordinary instinct to survive
over time. Today, Cambodia has reemerged from its ashes, and is
progressively evolving towards a more stable economic development. The
grace, the gentleness and the extraordinary life philosophy of the Khmer people incites the
photographers, each in his/her own way, in immortalizing unique moments, captivating or
simply representing daily life.
Through the images of this region, Asia Motion offers you a rich palette of colors. In order
to satisfy our clients, our agency proposes the view points from diverse professional photographers
and various products, such as in-depth documentaries or photos depicting key current
affaires. Asia Motion offers you a variety of services ranging from social, artistic, commercial,
press, fashion and advertising photography. . The diversity of photography genres
provides the client with a critical perspective of the world, based on quality and creativity.
At Asia Motion the photographers work on specific job orders and also sell their personal
work via the website, aiming to show their images and their texts beyond Asia.
