September 2012

Canon Europe has announced the appointment of German extreme sports and action photographer Richard Walch to its Ambassadors Programme, boosting the number of Canon advocates to 13, just two months after the programme was expanded with the addition of 17 new Canon Explorers.

Richard Walch began his career as a professional photographer in 1991, at the age of 18, shooting with an EOS-1N film SLR and has been shooting with Canon professional equipment ever since, including his diversification into filmmaking after the launch of the EOS 5D Mark II DSLR.

Walch told CPN: “I am delighted to be a Canon Ambassador and feel I am joining the programme at a very exciting time. There are so many exciting new products coming from Canon right now and I am super-happy to be working with some amazing equipment. The EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1D X in particular just blow me away.”

Kieran Magee, Professional Imaging Marketing Director, Canon Europe, commented: “We are delighted that Richard Walch has joined the Ambassadors Programme as he is constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with Canon equipment with his creativity and determination to ‘get the shot’ whatever the situation – often in the most extreme of circumstances. We hope that this recognition of his talents will help him to further explore what’s possible with Canon equipment.”

Magee added: “The further strengthening of the Ambassadors Programme cements the relationship between Canon and professional photographers, honours the talents of the world’s leading photographers, and engages with the wider photographic community. The Ambassadors Programme is a really exciting platform to bring the photographic industry together to share their knowledge.”

Canon Europe’s Ambassadors Programme was launched in June 2008 and now includes both Ambassadors – some of the world’s greatest photographers who are masters of their craft – and Explorers, who are nationally renowned photographers and filmmakers from across Europe. The Ambassadors share their skills and knowledge at various Canon workshops and seminars held throughout the year right across Europe, the Middle East and Africa while the Explorers operate from within their own country, sharing their passion for the Canon brand with like-minded professionals at various regional events.
