    It is always good to see companies such as Canon providing opportunities to nurture photographic enthusiasts to take part in events such as the Super Bowl. Both Stuart and Ben (contest winners) will be one of the many professional photographers donning the red vests along the sidelines shooting with the pro canon lenses which are so popular at sporting events that even in video games Canon photographers are designed to be present.

    Perhaps with this opportunity you will lead to either or both of these talented photographers can become the next Peter Read Miller or Rich Clarkson?
