Canon Imaging Academy

Canon Singapore recently announced the opening of a new training facility, the Canon Imaging Academy. Located at Keppel Bay Tower (next to HarbourFront), the academy aims to engage, educate and enrich the imaging experiences of users and to nurture a community of people passionate in photography, videography and other aspects of imaging.

The Canon Imaging Academy will focus on developing new curricula, courses, and events that will enhance the imaging experience of programme participants. Courses planned for 2011 include basic photography, intermediate photography, strobist, studio lighting, creative photography and editing with DPP courses. The academy will also introduce videography courses to meet the increasing demand. For those who prefer a greater emphasis on hands-on experience, the Canon Imaging Academy will also offer photography outings and overseas photo clinics. Each of the courses is designed to suit the varying skill-levels of participants from beginners to intermediate.
The academy has planned over 70 photography courses, 20 local outings, 10 overseas trips, and free product trainings which will engage a target of 15,000 shutterbugs this year.
In addition to Canon’s own trainers, the Canon Imaging Academy will also feature a group of dedicated trainers including award-winning photographers such as Triston Yeo, Alex Siew and Joseph Goh.
The Canon Imaging Academy is part of the expansion and restructuring of Canon’s current facility, the Canon Digital Lab. The Canon Digital Lab was launched in 2004 and has benefited more than 150,000 people to date. It will continue to focus on providing free product-familiarisation sessions to get users up to speed with their Canon products.
