Canon hosted a series of professional photography and videography workshops in Nairobi, Kenya, in partnership with Office Technologies, the local distributor of Canon in Kenya, and House of Fotography, between May 9th-20th. The educational sessions are intended to provide emerging young artistes the skills and training needed to gain more knowledge in their field, whilst harnessing new talent and giving Kenya’s youth hands-on access to Canon’s cameras.

The manufacturer recently established Canon Central and North Africa, a division under Canon Middle East, to be closer to its customers in Africa. Between May 9th-13th, a short course in DSLR filmmaking was conducted at Office Technologies’ offices, followed by a workshop on Commercial Street Photography from May 14th-15th.
