The 24th Annual Photo Day at the Los Angeles Zoo on Sunday, November 3, 2013, presented by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) and Paul’s Photo, features one-of-a-kind photo opportunities for film and digital photographers of all levels of expertise.  Among activities for participants in the event, from 7:30 am to 4 pm, are hands-on workshops with instruction for novices on the basics of wildlife and nature photography as well as opportunities for accomplished shutterbugs to explore new horizons while focusing on the art and science of outdoor photography.  Also included in the admission price are use of loan equipment from major manufacturers, one-on-one time with manufacturers’ representatives, catered lunch, guest speakers, t-shirt, early admission to the Zoo, animal close-ups for photography, and a photo contest with prizes.  Experts from Paul’s Photos, based in Torrance, and representatives from the top brands in photography provide participants with a full day of photography and education.

 

The deadline to register is October 15.

 

Photo Day is among many events presented by the private, non-profit Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, founded in 1963.  For five decades, GLAZA has funded plant and animal exhibits, species conservation, capital projects, and education and community outreach programs at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.  GLAZA also builds and invests endowment funds and operates five essential departments on behalf of the L.A. Zoo: development, publications, membership, volunteers, and oversight of the food and retail concessions.  There are currently 73,000 GLAZA-member households representing more than 300,000 adults and children, the largest membership base of any cultural organization in Los Angeles.  GLAZA additionally boasts a volunteer corps of more than 800 individuals.

 

The landmark Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, attracting 1.6 million visitors each year, is home to a diverse collection of 1,100 animals representing 250 different species, many of which are rare or endangered.  Its lush grounds on 133 acres feature a botanical collection comprising over 800 different plant species with approximately 7,000 individual plants.  Accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), whose members meet rigorous professional standards for animal welfare, the Zoo has achieved renown as an international leader in the preservation of endangered species and a conservation center for the care and study of wildlife.  Among its most popular habitats are the LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates, and Reptiles), Elephants of Asia, and Campo Gorilla Reserve, with the eagerly awaited Rainforest of the Americas habitat scheduled to open

soon.

 

L.A. Zoo Photo Day admission prices are $125 per photographer and $60 per guest until October 1, after which the prices are $175.00 per photographer, and $70.00 per guest.  Registration closes on October 15.  Catered lunch and early admission to the Zoo is included for guests.  The Zoo remains open to the public with regular Zoo admission available for non-Photo Day participants.

 

The Zoo is located in Griffith Park at the junction of the Ventura

(134) and Golden State (5) freeways.  5333 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027.  Free parking is available.  For additional information, contact GLAZA (volunteers@lazoo.org, or 323/644-4703) or Mark at Paul’s Photo (mark@paulsphoto.com; 310-375-7014; www.paulsphoto.com).
