Canon Photography in the Parks heads to Yellowstone

July 29, 2009, 10:25 am

In August, join American Park Network and Canon at Yellowstone National Park to learn how to take better digital photographs at the FREE Photography in the Parks workshops.

Beginners and seasoned photographers alike will benefit from the guidance and direction offered by our team of expert photographers, all while exploring the most scenic areas of Yellowstone!  Participants can bring their own equipment or use Canon’s SLRs and lenses—all free of charge.

From August 2-9, there will be two workshops each day, as well as an evening session hosted by a professional photographer who will lead you on a photo walk and give you some new perspectives of the park and photography. Workshops will be held every day except Tuesday.

For a detailed list of workshop dates, times and locations, along with more information about the Photography in the Parks program, visit the Canon Digital Learning Center.

There’s still time to enter your best national park photographs into the fourth annual Canon Photography In The Parks Photo Contest. The contest, open until September 30th, invites photography enthusiasts to enter by submitting their “Inspirational Nature Images”–the theme for this year’s contest. Photos taken at any park or monument in America can be entered through the Canon Digital Learning Center.

New this year, Canon will have two contest divisions for photographers between the ages of 13 and 17, and a separate division for adults ages 18 and older. This will enhance the contest experience by allowing aspiring teen photographers to compete amongst their peers.

After entering their photos through the Canon Digital Learning Center, potential contest winners will have the opportunity to forward an e-postcard of their submitted images to friends and family as a fun way to share their photographs.

Winning photographers from the Photography in the Parks Photo Contest will receive some of Canon’s hottest photographic equipment. Along with some of Canon’s hottest equipment, the Grand Prize winner will receive a trip to a National Park.

Online visitors are encouraged to browse the Canon Digital Learning Center to take advantage of the various educational resources that Canon has to offer for novices and advanced photographers alike. The Canon Digital Learning Center features online tutorials for beginners and professionals to learn their way around a digital SLR camera and inkjet printer and unlock the full creative control of digital photography.
