Canon Professional Services

We were recently at a wonderful State park, there were other intense photographers there, but interestingly many did not know about Canon Professional Services (CPS) or thought that you had to earn 100% income via photography to qualify. If you have a Canon camera body and a couple of lenses you likely qualify...

CPS members receive exclusive 24/7 phone and e-mail support, expedited and discounted equipment maintenance and repairs, Equipment Evaluation Loans, on-site support at select events and shows, discounts on Canon Live Learning seminars and workshops, and more.
Qualifications: For Silver, Gold and Platinum levels, CPS assigns a point value to each item listed on the Qualified Product lists. Points are accrued when entered into your CPS account and are used to determine your qualification. Canon Professional Services
