Wildlife photography in the urban jungle -- LA Zoo to host 24th annual Photo Day

"If your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough." -- Henri Cartier-Bresson

Wildlife photographers take note: In November, you can snap a pro photo of a cotton-top tamarin, or even a white-crested turaco, without leaving LA.

On Nov. 3, Photo Day (now in its 24th year) comes back to the LA Zoo. Admission price for Photo Day includes workshops from wildlife photography experts, the loan of equipment, and a catered lunch.

Most importantly though, Photo Day allows for close-ups -- that way your photos come out more National Geographic glossy and less Instagrammy.

If you register before Oct. 1, the ticket price for photographers is $125. Registration ends October 15. More info at the LA Zoo’s website.
