If you love animals and photography, this one is for you.

The Calgary Zoo’s FOCUSED photography event allows shutterbugs exclusive access to the outdoor portion of the Eurasia exhibit, before opening to the public for the day.

This is your chance to snap some pictures of the animals and the zoo grounds in the morning light without other guests ending up in the frame.
