Canon Photography in the Parks at Acadia National ParkWhat better way to end summer than by basking in the beauty of Acadia National Park? There’s one more chance to take advantage of the Canon Photography in the Parks Program. Presented by Canon U.S.A. and American Park Network, the free, hands-on photo and video workshops conclude in Acadia from August 18 to August 29.

The Canon Photography in the Parks Program offers participants free professional photography instruction as they take part in a guided walking photo tour of some of the most scenic national park areas. Following the tour, participants have the opportunity to print their work on site, and to download their image collection later from a secure server. Visitors of all ages and experience levels are welcome to participate.

New to this year’s program are Canon video workshop sessions. Visitors can experience and learn about shooting video using camcorders or EOS digital SLR cameras and participating in a hands-on videography demonstration with experts.

Acadia personifies the exquisite New England landscape. Canon Photography in the Parks will guide you along the cliffs to snap photos of the rocky coastline.  Zoom in on the 1,528-feet-high peak of Cadillac Mountain, the tallest point on the North Atlantic seaboard. And don’t forget to capture the iconic lighthouses! Turn Acadia into a special moment frozen in time. Photos encapsulate memories to last for a lifetime and with the Canon program, these moments will shine even brighter.

The program schedule for Acadia is as follows:

Those interested in participating should arrive 15-30 minutes ahead of the scheduled start time to register. Instructors are expert at putting artistic and technical concepts into language that participants of all ages will understand and will help unleash their creativity.
