Canon Launches a Series of Workshops Taking Place in National Parks

Canon-National Parks-2012.jpgSummer is a great time for travel and the perfect time to get out and see everything our country has to offer, including the absolutely gorgeous and inspiring national parks like the Grand Canyon, Zion and Yellowstone.

Canon is going to be doing some traveling too - setting up workshops at each of these parks for a few weeks each. You'll be able to go hands-on with a VIXIA camcorder or EOS DSLR and get tips on shooting in the parks.

"Canon is incredibly excited to help people improve their photography skills and capture the beauty of our national parks through our Photography in the Parks Program," says VP Yuichi Ishizuka. "Canon hopes to also help those who visit parks this summer create and preserve lasting memories and leverage their new found skills throughout their lives, for all of their important moments."
