Join the Canon Photography in the Parks Program

June 14, 2012, 6:58 am

Canon U.S.A. and American Park Network are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Canon Photography in the Parks Program, where national park visitors can take unique, hands-on photo and video workshops and create lasting memories. All workshops are FREE and open to the public and equipment is available for use at no additional charge.

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.

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

The Canon Photography in the Parks Program will take place at various dates through the summer at the following national parks:

• Grand Canyon: May 31 – June 20
• Zion/Springdale: June 24 – July 9
• Yosemite: July 13 – July 19
• Yellowstone: July 23 – July 31
• Grand Teton/Jackson Hole: August 1 – August 2
• Rocky Mountain: August 5 – August 11
• Acadia: August 18 – August 29
