The Ambassadors Programme initiative is inspired by the ‘Explorers of Light’ scheme, which Canon USA has been running very successfully since 1996. Canon Europe’s Ambassadors Programme was launched in June 2008 with world-class photographers from a wide range of photographic disciplines – including news, sport, nature, fashion, advertising and portraiture – and from all corners of the world. Over the past four years they have lent their expertise to workshops, seminars and major photography shows, including Visa Pour l’Image and Photokina, to create unique opportunities for photographers at all levels.
Kieran Magee, Professional Imaging Marketing Director, Canon Europe, explained: “The newly expanded Ambassadors Programme strengthens the relationship between Canon and professional photographers, honours the talents of the world’s leading photographers, and engages with the wider photographic community. Photographers are inspired by other photographers; whose work invokes future creativity. The Ambassadors Programme is a really exciting platform to bring the photographic industry together to share their knowledge.”
The Ambassadors Programme is scheduled to expand further with many more top photographers from around the world, who use and enjoy shooting with Canon equipment every day, joining to share their photographic passions and technical expertise.
In the near future a third tier will be added to the Ambassadors Programme with the addition of Canon ‘Masters’. The addition of the ‘Masters’ will open up the Ambassadors Programme even further to the wider photographic community by incorporating highly influential photographic industry professionals, as well as top, internationally renowned photographers who will provide their expert opinions for the Ambassadors Programme.
