Register now for an upcoming Fuji Photo Walk!

A shot from the last Beau Photo / Fuji Photo Walk

Beau Photo / Fuji-Guys Photo Walk  (Saturday, April 9th)

On Saturday, April 9th, Beau Photo and Fujifilm Canada will be hosting another photo walk. This time we'll be meeting at the Coal Harbour Community Centre in downtown Vancouver at 1:00pm. The walk will continue until 4pm. You will need to sign up in advance, and here is a link for doing so…

I, Mike Mander, will be there, as well as Gord Webster from Fujifilm, Vancouver's own "Fuji Guy", and Ramin Shahidian who is a local Fujifilm sales rep. You are welcome to bring your own camera gear to shoot with, be it Fujifilm or something else, and there will be lots of Fujifilm X-series loaner gear on hand for you to briefly try out during the event. Of particular interest is the new X-Pro2 body, and there should be four or more of those to share with other attendees. We will also have the new 100-400mm zoom as well as many other bodies and lenses to borrow and try out. In addition, we will be happy to answer any of your technical questions too plus, we will have some $50 off coupons on hand for those attendees wanting to purchase a Fujifilm body or lens after the event!
