National Geographic Photographer, Joe Riis will be in Singapore to share his experiences and provide photography tips to aspiring young photographers!

Born and raised in South Dakota on the Great Plains, Joe, a wildlife photojournalist, completed his first feature for National Geographic Magazine at the age of 26. The prized photo of the Gobi bear of Mongolia, the rarest bear in the world snapped using the camera trap technique that has since been perfected by Joe to capture close-up wildlife shots.

Joe's photography work has earned him several awards, including an Emmy in 2011 for his pronghorn cinematography which was featured in the National Geographic Channel Great Migration series.
