Canon Explorers of Light Seminar

The Linn Area Photo Club would like to invite everyone to the Canon Explorers of Light Seminar that is being held on Saturday, April 12th, from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in Cedar Rapids, IA.  This year’s guest speaker is Rick Sammon.  Rick is one of the leading photographers of our times.  With almost 800,000 followers on Google+, Rick’s work has been seen by photographers from around the world.  Rick’s passion for photography has taken him to more than 100 countries around the world.

If you have never attended a Canon Explorers of Light Seminar, I strongly encourage you to attend.  If you do plan to attend, I highly recommend that you sign up sooner rather than later since there is a limited amount of seating.  I also recommend that you pre-pay online for your lunch.  The cost for lunch is $10.  There is NO cost to attend the seminar.

Here is the link to register for the event.
