My fellow Clubsnappers,
ClubSNAP and Nikon Singapore is working hand-in-hand to bring you our 2004 installment of nature photography sharing workshop, Embrace Nature.
This year, we will place our emphasis on the mutual sharing of knowledge between regular nature shooters from ClubSNAPs World of Nature forum and our fellow members. We hope that in this way, we can help those who are interested in nature photography surmount what is seemingly a daunting learning experience.
The one-day workshop will be divided into two sessions, one hands-on trip in the morning and a debrief/sharing workshop in the afternoon. Please consult the workshop itineraries below for more details on these sessions.
We are honored and delighted to have Nikon Singapores continued support for our communitys effort in bringing photography to the masses. In this workshop, they will be sponsoring us with super telephoto lenses, DSLR bodies, speedlights, etc along with a generous subsidy for entry fees and logistical overheads.
