Canon insights from CES 2014

January 16, 2014

“So what does Canon Live Learning and Canon Digital Learning Center do?”

I was asked this question on multiple occasions during the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 (CES). So why was it important that Canon Live Learning (CLL) and Canon Digital Learning Center (CDLC) attend CES? Amongst all the fancy electric gizmos, doo-dads and free swag that may be thrown into the trash, CLL and CDLC are dedicated to the only thing you’ll never want to throw away – your talent.

Canon Live Learning and Canon Digital Learning Center are one of the leading groups of imaging educators that offer education seminars around the country, provide a free online resource written by industry experts and offer destination workshops led by some of the most influential photographers of our time, such as our Explorers of Light (EOL).

We know that having excellent imaging equipment is only one part of the solution, but it is your talent that will set you apart from the rest. For example, on stage at CES were a few of Canon’s EOL’s such as Rick Sammon, Jack Reznicki, Clay Blackmore, Ken Sklute, Peter Read Miller and Bruce Dorn, as well as Shane Hurlbut. Each one of our presenters shared his unique history of imaging and the years of successes, mistakes and opportunities of growth. Amongst all of these photographers, the common denominator all can agree upon is that talent will set you apart from the rest.

We’ve all heard it on the news and shared it between one another – we live in the Information Age. With the Information Age, we’re able to share our talents with one another on an unparalleled opportunity. Talent is shared physically and digitally in your town, in your park, in your living room, in your hands and it even fits in your pocket. A moment in time is captured and shared between family, friends and now on a more frequent basis with strangers.

And the question becomes, “Where can I learn more about developing my talent or getting a little inspiration?”
