Are you still trying to figure out how to take your photography to another level, or better learn how to utilize that DSLR that is collecting dust on that shelf in your office? Well, if you are a Canon shooter then this may be just the thing you need.
Canon has announced details on its 2016 Destination Workshops, a series of six hands-on workshops with a travel-photography focus that will take photographers to destinations around the U.S. As Canon puts it, these are “out-of-the-ordinary vacations that not only give you access to an exciting location but inspire you to shoot pictures like a professional travel photographer — pictures you’ll be proud to share, print, frame and hang on your wall.”
Among the locations that interested photographers will be able to visit are Olympic National Park in Washington State, a New England fishing village in Rockport Massachusetts, a surfing location in Hawaii, and Arches National Park in Utah. The workshops are multi-day events, each with a Canon-sponsored instructor like Charles Glatzer, Ken Sklute, and Zak Noyle.
The first workshops start later this month, on Jun 23 in Northern Michigan, and continue through the year, ending with Parish Kohanim’s workshop in Savannah, Georgia. The workshops vary in price, ranging from $1,150 to $3,650 (there is also a $100 discount for Canon Professional Services members), and prices do not include lodging, food, or travel, so your actual cost to attend will likely be much higher.
If you have the available funds, these workshops will be an incredible opportunity to learn from Canon-certified instructors who are knowledgeable in their craft, so that not only will you go home with some amazing imagery to memorialize your trip but also with the know-how to recreate amazing images on your own.
