Canon Ambassador and Explorers at new UK photography show
A brand new photography show for enthusiast photographers is launching next month (from 1-4 March) at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, UK, and Canon will feature strongly both as an exhibitor, showcasing its superb range of imaging equipment, as well as fielding four members of its Ambassadors Programme as special guest speakers.
Giving talks throughout the duration of the show will be Canon Ambassador Jeff Ascough as well as Canon Explorers Danny Green, David Noton and Clive Booth.
Adobe’s Richard Curtis (author of the recent CPN Lightroom 5 tutorials), National Geographic photojournalist Steve McCurry (Magnum Photos), fashion and celebrity photographer Rankin and legendary portrait photographer Terry O’Neill will also be there, where they will each give talks about their careers and showcase some stunning images.
Canon on show!
The Canon stand is located at Stand B10, within Halls 11 and 12 of the NEC. There you will have the opportunity to explore its full EOS DSLR product line-up, touch and try lenses at the elevated long lens bar, speak to Canon experts, who will be on hand to answer questions, and watch how Canon’s PIXMA printer demonstrations can enhance your imaging.
Lee Bonniface, Corporate and International Accounts Director, Canon Europe, said: “We’re very excited to work with The Photography Show and be part of the inaugural event. At Canon we aim to inspire and support all those interested in photography to take their next step in imaging and the show will provide a fantastic opportunity to do this. With emphasis on experiences and interactivity we want the visitors to come away excited and empowered, ready to take whatever their next step will be.”
Show organiser Jonny Sullens, Head of Events at Future plc, commented: “We are so pleased that Canon has chosen to exhibit at the debut of The Photography Show. Canon's desire to help those progress to their ‘next step’ in imaging is a great way to help photographers improve and will resonate with the range of visitors we will have from early adopters to full fledged professionals.”

The Photography Show will bring the imaging industry to life for the UK’s growing audience of amateur photographers, with some of the biggest names in the industry unlocking the secrets of their craft. The show floor itself will be brimming with hundreds of exhibitors, the very latest kit and accessories, and an array of interactive opportunities to get involved in. A studio suite will also be created on-site for visitors to see demonstrations in a professional environment, and themed areas including the IGPOTY Flower Garden, specially created to ensure all subject interests are fully catered for.
