The event, with the theme “Emotions”, included students from eight secondary schools who were mentored by experienced shutterbugs Organised on 20 Oct 2018 by the SAFRA Photographic Club, one of the major photography clubs in Singapore.

Students from eight schools spent an enjoyable day in the midst of nature as they picked up expert photography tips and captured memorable wildlife images at the Singapore Zoo. As part of its Youth Development Programme, the 20 Oct event organised by SAFRA Photographic Club welcomed students from Anderson Secondary School, Broadrick Secondary School, Canberra Secondary School, CHIJ Katong Convent, Christ Church Secondary School, Fairfield Methodist School (Secondary), Geylang Methodist School (Secondary) and Unity Secondary School to learn more about photography.

The students were also game to try their hand at capturing the “emotions” of animals, as was the theme of the afternoon’s shoot. The day’s programme included a competition briefing, talks on wildlife and event photography, and a three-hour photo shoot as students were divided into groups and guided by mentors on three assigned routes within the zoo. Participants said that they enjoyed the experience of visiting the zoo together with their friends, and having the rare opportunity to learn how to take wildlife photography with experts ready to guide them.
