Richard Reitman / Born an American way back but now my heart, soul and body belong in Asia. Been photographing it seems my whole life and have the photos to proof it. Spent so much time on the road it is home and thats where I get my inspiration. The road and the people one finds in the small towns and villages across this vast planet. After graduating from the Art Academy in San Francisco, I spent a year teaching photography at the art school in San Migeul de Allenda in Mexico. Then my Vagabond life time travels began. For 4 years spent the winters in Aspen Colorado and the remaining 7 months on the road hitting all of Central America, Europe, North Africa and then overland to India and Nepal. In 1982 took off on what turned into a 18 month tour by bicycle of Thailand, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Indonesia before finally settling in Thailand where i have remained since, with trips around Asia and extended period of 2008 and 2009 in Cambodia.
Dave Perkes / born in London 1954; has over 30 years of photography experience – much of it in the UK and Europe. Dave was primarily a landscape photographer and traveled extensively in UK, Europe and the Far East. Dave left his day job at the Ordnance Survey in Southampton to live in Cambodia in 2003 and set up Peace of Angkor Villa; a small hotel catering for photographers . This change led him to work photographing hotels for brochures and web sites from 2004. Dave still does commissions; but his main focus is running Peace of Angkor photo and adventure Tours. Combining in-depth Angkor knowledge and photographic skills; Dave is an ideal person to take individual and small group photographic tours to the places normal tours do not go!
Dave is a regular contributor for the Siem Reap Angkor Guides and ran a weekly column Temple Watch for the Phnom Penh Post in 2008 to late 2009. In recent years, Dave’s emphasis has been on people in remote villages and life on the Tonle Sap Lake. His current project is Celestial Temples; exploring the relationships between the stones of Angkor, sky and weather.

Khamin / was born in 1979 in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, which is the largest sea beach in the world. He completed MBA in Human Resource Management and BBA in International Management from The University of Chittagong. He started photography at the age of 25 through a Zenith manual gear camera by taking single shots of whatever he likes. He started working as a corporate official in his early carrier and later he joined as a lecturer in a college. Soon, he lost interest in such kind of jobs and picked camera seriously to framing subjects.

Apart from this Khamin is also a correspondent photographer of Indonesia based photo agency portaltiga.com Khamin has written around 45 articles on injustice, irregularities, politics, corruption and ethnic issues in Bangladesh. Around 15 of his photo features have been published at home and abroad. For his job he has traveled different parts of Bangladesh, even the border side of the country. He enjoys this and always seeks such adventurous opportunities to explore the facts and realities that are happening. There is hardly a place in Bangladesh where Khamin has not yet visited. He visited India and Myanmar too.
