Ampisound has been working with Canon on a number of PR and Media events across varying facets of the company. Canon have been very supportive and committed to using Parkour. It is a strong example of a progressive and interesting activity to inspire creative output, especially due to its flexibility to implement.
Scott Bass hosted a day long workshop for Canon Professional Services, working with top level athletes in London’s LEAP Parkour facility. Myself and Canon explorer, Samo Vidic, coached the attendees through shooting action and Parkour, from camera settings to compositional tips.
Three of our athletes provided movement for the event and we worked to ensure they could create interesting and dynamic setups for the photographers. Feedback from the guests on the day has been extremely positive, with a clear improvement being visible in the guests work as they got to grips with shooting movement.
Scott also worked with Canon to produce a London City Guide for the ‘Come and See’ campaign. Selecting a number of locations across the city that are great for photography, he also added a parkour influence to the booklet.
Finally Scott worked with Canon to coordinate a media event to demonstrate the new products for 2015. Showing journalists and tech bloggers to the spiritual home of Parkour in London, where they shot Katie McDonnell and Erik Mukhametshin, before taking a boat down the thames to a London Parkour academy where they had an opportunity to get involved themselves.
