Canon Marks 20th Year of Explorers of Light

Program Adds Wider Range of Members


Melville, NY—In celebration of the 20th anniversary of its Explorers of Light Program, Canon USA is welcoming new members into the program. These include Lindsay Adler, David Bergman, Jimmy Chin, Charles Glatzer, Joel Grimes, Peter Hurley and Roberto Valenzuela.

The new members will expand the program’s ranks to align with a wide range of talented personalities who impact imaging culture and influence the way their audiences see the world.

The new ambassadors for the Explorers of Light program go beyond the boundaries of still photography by sharing their work through gallery prints, the silver screen, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms. These influential talents are constantly helping to create new ways in which the world is visually captured and shared. The program brings these individuals together to offer their knowledge, photographic passion and expertise while also acting as a conduit between Canon and various developing imaging markets.

“Our world is constantly changing, and Canon prides itself on being at the forefront of change. For 20 years the Explorers of Light program has enabled us to align with amazing professional photographers that educate and inspire, and now these new luminaries will help us to engage in meaningful two-way communication with exciting and emerging imaging markets,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon USA, Inc.

Since the creation of the program in 1995, Canon’s Explorers of Light have been leaders in their respective fields. They work with Canon extensively as representatives, ambassadors, educators and role models for aspiring creative artists. They participate in workshops, seminars, gallery showings and personal appearances throughout the United States.
