Canon Imaging Academy: Empowering Filipino Photographers Through Expert-Led Workshops

Canon Imaging Academy offers expert-led workshops empowering Filipino photographers of all levels.

Discover the Canon Imaging Academy, where local creatives of all levels can refine their skills under the guidance of industry professionals. Canon Marketing Philippines invites photography enthusiasts—beginners, hobbyists, and professionals alike—to immerse themselves in a series of enriching workshops and activations.

This pioneering initiative provides structured learning opportunities tailored to support and elevate the skills of Filipino photographers. Participants can delve into various topics ranging from photography and videography to printing, led by esteemed industry experts and Canon ambassadors known as the Canon Crusaders of Light and Canon Professional Shooters.

Throughout the year, Canon Marketing Philippines has curated engaging events such as the Penagbenga Festival Photowalk and Photo Contest with acclaimed filmmaker Jijo de Guzman, a filmmaking workshop featuring director Zig Dulay, and a Geek + Pop Cosplay Photography Workshop with Jay Tablante.

“These workshops by Canon Philippines are designed to foster growth and creativity, offering both new and existing photographers the opportunity to learn from a roster of highly professional speakers. Each speaker is a proven expert in their field, bringing a wealth of experience and theoretical knowledge to the table,” shared Edwin Martinez, Canon Crusader of Light.

Beyond skill enhancement, these workshops foster a community where photographers and videographers can network, share ideas, and experience Canon’s cutting-edge EOS R full-frame cameras and RF lenses, celebrated for their innovation and versatility across various shooting environments.

“Our goal is to provide meaningful and substantial experiences for the participants through valuable and fun learning. I am proud to be part of #TeamCanonPH,” shared by Jijo De Guzman, Canon Crusader of Light.

Canon Marketing Philippines also prioritizes environmental sustainability, integrating responsible practices into their operations. “At Canon, we believe in responsibly capturing the world’s beauty,” noted Jian Liu, Director of Consumer Information and Imaging (CII). “Initiatives like the Canon Imaging Academy empower photographers to preserve our natural environment through their art.”
