Want to learn how to take a stunning national park photo? Become a master of the camera and capture the breathtaking park scenery at the Canon Photography in the Parks Program. Presented by Canon U.S.A. and American Park Network, the free, hands-on photo and video workshops will come to Acadia National Park from August 18 – August 29.
The Canon Photography in the Parks Program offers participants free professional photography instruction as they take part in a guided walking photo tour of some of the most scenic national park areas. Participants can bring their own equipment or borrow, at no charge, Canon equipment from a selection of EOS DSLR cameras and EF lenses, PowerShot point-and-shoot cameras, or VIXIA camcorders. Following the tour, participants have the opportunity to print their work on site, and to download their image collection later from a secure server. Visitors of all ages and experience levels are welcome to participate. New to this year’s program are Canon video workshop sessions. Visitors can experience and learn about shooting video using camcorders or EOS digital SLR cameras and participating in a hands-on videography demonstration with experts.
After wrapping up workshops at the Grand Canyon, Zion, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Rocky Mountain, Photography in the Parks will be coming to Acadia National Park from August 18 – August 29. Instructors will lead photo and video workshops three times daily at 9 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., unless indicated to the contrary.*

Schoodic Education and Research Center Institute (SERC Institute): August 18* (10 a.m., 1 p.m. & 4 p.m.)
