Hotel Photography in Siem Reap for Anantara Hotels & Resorts

Recently I had the fortune of making some stunning hotel photography in Siem Reap for Anantara Angkor Resort.

International Hotel Photographer

The Cambodian city of Seam Reap, in the NorthEast of Cambodia, is the gateway to the grand Angkor Archaeological Park UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located just 10 minutes away from Angkor Wat is Anantara Angkor Resort, the luxury brand of Minor Hotels.

The boutique hotel resembles a magnificent Khmer villa with all suites and guest rooms overlooking a beautiful courtyard and saltwater pool modeled on Srah Srang, a bathing pool built for Angkor’s kings.

How To Choose The Right Photographer


Eating options include the Chi Restaurant and Bar. Or you can enjoy Dining by Design whether it be an Apsara performance for two as you dine in the courtyard or a Champagne picnic overlooking the West Baray reservoir at sunset.

Anantara Spa draws inspiration from heavenly apsaras and indigenous lotuses, indulgent treatments soothe aching muscles after long days of discovery.

Extremely Professional and Talented

Bruce is an extremely professional and talented photographer. Throughout the process of photographing a rooftop bar he was extremely patient and a calm communicator going beyond the scope to photograph other hotel elements during the shoot. The post production process was fast and efficient and were extremely happy with the end result.

Best photographer in the country for commercial photo shooting

Bruce made some photographs of several of the properties I was working for at MAADS, and he did such a great job that we called him back to ask him to work for us! From the time I spent in Cambodia I would definitely recommend him as the best photographer in the country for commercial photo shooting (architecture outdoor/indoor). Amazing lighting, brightness, contrast... nothing to change, everything is ready to use and to impress 😉

Refreshed our OTA profiles

You did a great job regarding PODs, sunrise lights were amazing. These images have refreshed our OTAs profiles. We appreciate your effort and time.

Best Pictures

Bruce did the best pictures we managed to get for our properties!

Professional results, production and timeline.

In terms of result delivery in making the photographs, include the production and timeline, Bruce is a very professional photographer.

Professional and skillful

‘Professional and skillful’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Bruce. I hired Bruce as a freelance photographer late last year after coming highly recommended and viewing his online portfolio. During this time he updated our photo library with some amazing photos. Above all, I was impressed with Bruce’s ability to capture the best of our locations under different lighting conditions and the attention to detail he has put into the process. And, of course, his easygoing nature and flexibility made the cooperation more fruitful and productive. For any hotel or property that requires high-quality photos, Bruce would be the one I would highly recommend.

I strongly recommend Bruce for architectural and product shots

Bruce has an eye for detail, a feel for lighting, a flair for perspectives! An honest and friendly character without attitude who brings pictures to life!
I strongly recommend Bruce for architectural and product shots.

Timely in both communications as well as processing

I am happy to pass on that recommendation to anyone seeking a talented, professional, and creative photographer in the Kingdom. After struggling to capture our brand-new boutique hotel (Monsoon Bassac Hotel, Phnom Penh) myself, I contacted Bruce via his website. From start to finish, he was an absolute professional- timely in both communications as well as processing, patient with our numerous requests, and able to capture our hotel's difficult angles and lighting in a way that kept things realistic but also showcased their beauty. His photographs are a true representation of what guests will find in our hotel, and we proudly use his photographs on all of our media.
Bruce is able to walk into a room and immediately see potential. He is flexible, and takes your ideas and brand identity into account when creating his images. I could not be prouder to have his photos representing our brand, and I wholeheartedly recommend his services.

The quality of the images is great

I am really happy with you and your work. The quality of the images is great.
