Lisa Shovkaluk - Private Guide in Angkor
Photo school, photo tours
Languages: English, Ukrainian, Russian
I am 37 years old, born and lived for 35 years in Ukraine. I was busy with human resources, marketing, events, photography and psychology, but I have truly found myself here in Cambodia. When I first saw the temples of Angkor Park as a tourist, I fell in love with them on the spot and decided to move to Siem Reap, return here as a guide. I spent half a year studying history of Cambodia and peculiarities of the temples, making money for the move. And then I did it, I moved here by the end of the summer 2012.
First year I spent learning the science of guidance with the big bus tourist groups, and then I started making my own private tours with the individuals, couples or small groups of friends. In parallel I also work as a psychotherapist, namely I conduct the family constellations by Bert Hellinger. So I like combining tours with psychological retreats and even esoteric activities, as all these temples are the places of power and sacred rituals.
I also avoid routine tours making sure that we meet as least of big tourist groups as possible. My other passion is photography - for own pleasure and the photo tours.
