Canon Europe has revealed the latest members of its Ambassadors Programme with the addition of six new ‘Explorers’ – highly talented photographers and filmmakers from across Europe who share a passion for photography and film with a love of shooting with Canon equipment.
The new Explorers joining the Ambassadors Programme have been specially selected by Canon representatives from across Europe and they come from a wide range of genres including wildlife, photojournalism, architecture, adventure and filmmaking.
The six new Explorers to become part of the Canon Ambassadors Programme are:
- Photojournalist photographer Sinan Çakmak (Turkey).
- Wildlife photographer Marina Cano (Spain).
- Street fashion photographer Catalin Opritescu – aka Lightaholic (Romania).
- Photographer and filmmaker Simeon Quarrie (UK).
- Timelapse photographer and cinematographer Beno Saradzic (Slovenia).
- Sports photographer Samo Vidic (Slovenia).
The six latest Explorers joining the Ambassadors Programme mean the Explorers tier has now swelled to 53 top imaging talents from right across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, each of whom being superb exponents of their art. They join the 11 Canon Ambassadors – world-class photographers from a wide range of photographic disciplines and from all corners of the world and the four Masters – world-renowned industry influencers and spokespeople.
Canon Europe’s Ambassadors Programme was launched in June 2008 and over the past seven years the Canon Ambassadors, Explorers and Masters have lent their expertise to workshops, seminars and major photography shows around the world, as well as providing expert feedback to help in the development of future Canon imaging products.
Kieran Magee, Professional Imaging Marketing Director, Canon Europe, explained: “We very much value the relationship we have with our Masters, Ambassadors and Explorers, and the addition of six new Explorers means we can continue to connect with Canon photographers who are actively using our products to further their creative vision.”
