Gentlemen, Start Your Engines...
WE will be starting to enjoy ourselves at the 2012 Canon Workshop this month. It will be on the 21st of July - that's a Saturday - and will be held at the Barbagallo Raceway in Wanneroo.
The guest presenter is Mark Horsburgh who has the honour of being one of Australian motor sports most successful photographers. Successful and spectacular. Google up some of his work and see what I mean. He'll be showing us what he does and how he does it in the morning, and then there will be lunch and trackside time for Perth's entusiasts to capture some of the action.
Apart from the motorcycles flying around the track, there will be pit-side shooting time too with professional lighting and model. One thing you can count on with motor sports, whether moving or static, is plenty of colour. Racers are not shy about painting things. Turn your saturation up to three zillion and wear the sunnies!
All joking aside, there will be Camera Electronic And Canon people there to help you have a good time - we're bringing new Canon EOS 1Dx cameras for people to see, as well as new EOS 5D Mk III cameras. There will be a good variety of lenses to experiment with - I'm guessing the long fast zooms will be popular when it comes to trackside shooting.
Of course it wouldn't be a Camera Electronic event without special offers and deals, so be sure to talk to Saul and Howard.
Places are filling rapidly - give us a ring here at the shop or drop us an email to secure one. It'll cost $ 199 for the day but the picture excitement will be priceless. Heck with weddings - we're going to the racetrack!
