Canon Announces Live Learning Educational Events
I have written a few articles with tips on wildlife photography and watching, gathered from years of experience going on photo shoots. You can read them here on my website and a FAQ section on equipment. Please feel free to contact me for any further information or questions. Now Canon USA is offering some Live Learning classes in various cities. The classes are NOT free and below is an excerpt of their press release. The full release is here.
MELVILLE, N.Y., March 14, 2013 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the 2013 Canon Live Learning (CLL) workshops and programs schedule. The on-site education program, now in its fourth year, is aimed at helping both advanced imaging enthusiasts and professionals elevate their knowledge of photography, filmmaking, and the technologies within Canon’s professional imaging and printing devices. CLL programs feature the EOS Immersion Seminars, EOS Destination Workshops, and Canon Professional Development Seminars and Workshops. Each of the programs offer an educational experience that will provide informative classes and hands-on instruction by a number of imaging professionals including Canon’s Explorers of Light (EOL).
“The Canon Live Learning program is an example of the emphasis Canon puts not only on the quality of its products, but also on the importance of educating customers so they maximize their imaging experience,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “The goal of these educational programs is to empower our customers to expand their creative visions.”
CLL programs are available throughout the United States and, as in previous years, the 2013 EOS Immersion series of seminars and workshops will be presented in a weekend format with the EOS Immersion Seminar on Saturday, followed by the choice of two EOS Immersion Workshops on the following Sunday. The EOS Immersion Workshop hosts participants in a studio setting where they will be taught photographic and HD Video techniques, and where they are encouraged to try Canon’s latest EOS equipment, and accessories in order to gain a greater knowledge of Canon’s imaging products.
Canon representatives will be on-hand to provide technical assistance at all CLL events to help ensure that any questions and concerns can be answered accurately and immediately.
