SINGAPORE, 23 AUGUST 2011Jurong Bird Park, the world’s largest bird park, in collaboration with National Geographic Channel, presents its colourful and fascinating avian residents as subjects in an exclusive photography workshop in the park on 17 September 2011. The hands-on workshop will be conducted by renowned Nat Geo photographer, Mattias Klum, where he will share his experiences and photography techniques.

There are two workshops which are open to the public on 17 September. There will be one session in the morning and another in the afternoon, during which participants will embark on a personalized photo trail helmed by Mattias. Each 2 hour trail will take participants to some of Jurong Bird Park’s free-flight aviaries, and they can look forward to coming up close to the parks’ many vibrantly feathered residents. Mattias will provide feedback on the spot to participants for a much more engaging workshop, and will focus on areas like composition, action, techniques, pan-shots, slow shutter speeds and manual versus auto.

To take part and learn from the expert photographer Mattias Klum, the public can log on to www.natgeotv.com/birdpark from now till 7 September to share why they love photography in 100 words.
