A National Geographic photographer is coming to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium next weekend to tech kids photography.

Don’t know if you’re a Natty G fan like myself, but this would be a cool opportunity if you’re 3-8 years old. Kids borrow a digital camera as Whidbey Island-based Kevin Horan teaches them how to shoot photos. The kids then practice on animals at the zoo.

National Geographic photographer to lead photo workshops for preschoolers at the Zoo

Picture this: dozens of camera-toting preschoolers learning all about photography from a renowned National Geographic photographer at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.

On Saturday, Oct. 4, the Zoo will host three photo workshops designed specifically for kids aged 3-8 and world-class photographer Kevin Horan will lead them. After the tutorial, children will be loaned Fisher Price digital cameras for their assignment to photograph animals throughout the Zoo.

Pre-registration is required for the workshops and space is limited. There will be three workshops throughout the day at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. Call 253-591-5333 to reserve your spot in a workshop.

Oct. 4 is World Animal Day, so the Zoo will be celebrating with other activities too. Come by for arts and crafts, screenings of the PBS KIDS series "Mama Mirabelle’s Home Movies," a cake celebration and prizes.
