Five New Photographers Added to Famed Canon Explorers of Light Program
MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of five photographers to its famed Explorers of Light (EOL) program. Lara Jade, Lynsey Weatherspoon, Kahran & Regis Bethencourt (CreativeSoul), and Atiba Jefferson will join 33 other photographers in the program. Each photographer brings their own refreshing blend of art and creativity by capturing life and culture from perspectives that are uniquely their own.
For more than 25 years, members of Canon's EOL program have shared their knowledge and vision with the photographic community and consumers alike. Whether it is photojournalism, fashion, outdoor and nature, sports, or portraiture, their collective visions have given us unique perspectives of the world and helped hone the skills of professional photographers and enthusiasts through a series of educational initiatives within the program. As photography has evolved over time, so too has Canon's EOL program, embracing new talent with new perspectives while honoring the masters before them with the exclusive title of Canon Legend.
"We are pleased and proud to welcome these talented photographers to Canon's iconic Explorers of Light program," said Tatsuro "Tony" Kano, executive vice president and general manager of the Canon U.S.A., Inc., Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. "The Canon EOL program is a platform for some of the most successful and influential photographers to showcase their vision, knowledge, and know-how through a variety of educational initiatives. As new generations of creatives use photography to explore new perspectives on the world, Canon will continue to provide the support needed to tell their stories."
