How to become an ambassador & part of the team


Iv been shooting for quite a few years now & have always been a canon fan. Always trying to stay creative & find the most eye catching things to try & shoot & show the world. But I want to take my work further, I want to be able to join the canon team as a photographer & go out & shoot whatever y’all want or need but in doing so helping show the world things they may not get to see or experience. I want to learn from the best on your team & do whatever it takes. 



I believe these programs require an extensive portfolio.  You would then need to submit your work to the Ambassadors, Explorers of Light, and/or Canon Legends programs.  I do not think these programs offer training.  They appear to be comprised of published professional with extensive portfolios showcasing their work.

I would contact Canon for more information.

I am pretty sure you don't call them, they call you.

Very true kvbarkley,

I was just trying to be gentle about it.  🤣

The system works rather like that for elite sports professionals who become brand ambassadors.  They have to have a highly-regarded standing, almost certainly as a professional, and a consistent record of performance at a high level before they are considered.

As my esteemed colleagues have pointed out, such organizations approach the professional and not the other way around.  That said, if you study hard, practise hard and apply yourself to become the successful professional you want to be, then such offers will come your way - but those opportunities are relatively few.

cheers, TREVOR

Is there a list of these ambassadors available? Someone I know claims to be one..but this individual has very little social media presence etc.
