For most of us, the closest we get to wildlife photography is the birds that visit our backyard feeders and what we can shoot on a trip to the zoo. But if you’re serious about shooting wildlife, a conference in London may help you achieve your photographic goals.

October 26th and 27th, Wildscreen, the Bristol-based conservation charity, with Shell Wildlife photographer of the year, will host WildPhotos 2007: Exploring the Power of Nature Photography.

The event will take place at the Royal Geographical Society in London, where you can hear from wildlife photographers including Karl Amman, Gary Braasch, Pal Hermansen, Robert Glenn Ketchum and Chris Packham about how to take great wildlife photos and get them published.

The price (with airfare) is a bit steep if you aren’t already in London. A day pass is £95 ($190) (£75 ($150), students and over 60s), and a two-day pass is £165 ($329). Check out their website
