Professional Photographers to benefit from extensive Canon support at Paris Fashion Week

PARIS, September 27th 2008 – Canon Europe, world-leader in imaging solutions, today celebrates the continuation of its sponsorship of Paris Fashion Week by providing an exclusive programme of support for professional photographers at this prestigious event.

As sponsor for the third year, Canon will be providing a dedicated support centre for Professional photographers on site to ensure that all accredited photographers have everything they need, from internet access and printers to a dedicated team of Canon support technicians. All visitors to the event are also invited to the Canon Catwalk Photowall at the Canon stand, where they can have their image taken on a mocked-up runway, and then printed out to take away with them.

Canon is also principal sponsor of London Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week. This extensive support in Paris builds on Canon’s previous European consumer fashion projects, We Speak Image and The Other Side of Fashion, which raised thousands of euros for the Red Cross Societies.

James Leipnik, Chief of Communication and Corporate Relations at Canon Europe said, “The power of the image is at the heart of the world of fashion, and Canon’s leading imaging solutions are used to deliver outstanding results throughout the industry, from image capture through to colour matching and professional quality printing. We are delighted to be able to support professional photographers in Paris again this September and enable them to capture striking images both on and off the catwalk.”
