IT’S THAT time again, when some of the world’s top na­ture pho­tog­ra­phers gather in Cape Town for Wild Shots, Africa’s pre­mier an­nual wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy con­fer­ence.

Now in its fifth year, the event plays host to world-class na­ture pho­tog­ra­phers and in­dus­try prac­ti­tion­ers who present their work, in­spir­ing the au­di­ence via sem­i­nars, work­shops and dis­cus­sions.

Open to am­a­teurs and pro­fes­sion­als alike, Wild Shots takes place next Satur­day at the V&A Wa­ter­front.

Among the speak­ers are Nelis Wo­marans, of A Time with Gi­ants – ad­ven­tures with moun­tain go­ril­las fame, An­drew Ave­ley ( Black and White – the art of ex­po­sure) and Peter Cor­bett, whose talk is en­ti­tled Land­scapes – har­mon­is­ing cre­ative vi­sion with print­ing ex­cel­lence.

En­try is R1 350, or R950 for stu­dents and re­tirees.
