Discover the creativity that sleeps in every photographer
Throughout the Canon Discovery Week, a mobile van will drive to a different location to allow as many people as possible to meet with Canon’s experts. Locals will have the opportunity to come to the van and get a free A4 portrait photography of themselves. This will be a unique chance for customers to discuss the essential techniques required to capture beautiful portraits. They can then choose how to print their portrait and leave with a copy. They will also be able to come with their own Canon devices and ask any questions they may have on the best way to use them and have their cameras checked and cleaned free of charge.
