“There is an increasing demand for freelance photographers who are able to customize and plan for a personalized and unique pre-wedding photo shoot," said Simon Wong, Director of the Imaging Communication Products division of Canon Marketing (Malaysia). "This demand propels the growth of freelance wedding photography in Malaysia, not only presenting consumers with more choices but also in turn contributing to a more holistic growth of the wedding photography industry. We are always on the lookout for ways to cultivate and promote the growth of professional photography as we believe in the combination of great skills with the best technology to produce top quality photographs."

Canon Malaysia will be showcasing the works of 18 carefully selected top local wedding photographers at the gallery, providing them a platform to share their portfolio with couples who may be interested in engaging the services of freelance wedding photographers. Interested parties may view their work and have further discussions with the photographers at their booths on Level 2.

Additionally, Inifinity Wedding Mall will be partnering with Canon Malaysia to organize monthly wedding photography and videography-related activities. Through this partnership, Canon has already organized an inaugural wedding photography and videography forum on April 21 featuring renowned talents like Peter Tan of Peter Tan Photography, Norazam of Neurmaya Photography, Andy Tan of The Studio Park and Fauzee of Manggis.tv. The session explored topics such as the selection of suitable cameras and lenses, lighting tips, settings advice, poses ideas, storyboard structure, suggested types of music and editing guidelines.

The collaboration with Infinity Wedding Mall also ensures that Canon Professional Service (CPS) members and Canon EOS Buddy Club (EBC) members are entitled to a special early bird leasing package offered by Infinity Wedding Mall. Under this package, CPS and EBC members can enjoy a discount of up to 51% on digital and non-digital advertising panel rental fees.
