It is with Extreme Pride, Humility, and Honor today I can announce publicly … Canon has asked me to be one of their Explorers of Light (EOL). This prestigious group is comprised of dozens of the most influential photographers and cinematographers in the world, each a master of their creative specialty. I am truly humbled to a part of this illustrious group. "The Explorers of Light program is, in the purest sense of the word, a mentoring program; a means of sharing hard-earned knowledge and expertise and of actually shedding light on the intricacies of imaging of all sorts," I will continue to share my photographic passion and technical expertise with eager audiences in a variety of personal appearances, seminars, and gallery showings throughout the United States. I look forward to contributing fresh insight and new ideas to the program. To my friends, and those that have supported me over the years, especially, my wife and family, I thank you with all my heart! Without your endearing faith, sacrifice, and support I would not be the man I am today. Congratulations to all the EOL’s. It was great meeting many of you earlier this week at the Canon Expo. I have followed many of your careers over the years, and each one of you are an inspiration.I am truly grateful to be a part of the EOL family, and I look forward to reacquainting myself with many of you, and truly getting to know others The next Chapter is going to be beyond Amazing!!!!! Wish You All... Only the Best Life has to Offer, Chas.
