EDITOR’S NOTE This issue of Click Mag comes to you just as we’re about to depart for the first leg of our Roadshows for 2018. You may have noticed that we have changed the show from previous years – from two annual events to a single event. We are trying a few different ideas to make the Roadshow a very exclusive and unmissable item on the photographic calendar. For the first time ever, we will host an international guest speaker – AND an official Canon ambassador at that. Katya Murkhina is a world-renowned portrait and wedding photographer from Russia who has just won a major category in the WPPI awards (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) – taking first AND second place in the album Engagement Section for 2017. Please go have a look at her website to get an idea of her work ( . We are also very pleased to announce the return of Kim Ludbrook to the Roadshow stage. He presented a few years ago with a portfolio of his four biggest projects: the tour de France, Oscar Pistorius trial, Africa Burn, and the war in Libya and the downthrow of Gaddafi. His presentation received a phenomenal response and we are sure he will get the same with his upcoming show. At the time of going to press with this issue, we were also just about to announce that as of 1 May 2018, Kim will be appointed by Canon Europe as an official Canon ambassador for South Africa and we cannot congratulate him enough on this incredible achievement. As usual, please keep up with our new products and events around the country by subscribing to our YouTube version of this magazine (search for Click Video Mag) and check out the latest sub-feature called “Lensday Wednesday” – where I do a small weekly talk about one of our lenses – NB – we have over 80 so this will be going on for quite a while! Until we see you at the Roadshow – keep Clicking away! Roger Machin Product Manager PVDVC Products Canon SA 2 DEAR ALL,
