Students in Melissa Johnides’ Photography 2 class enjoyed a rare trip to Canon U.S.A. in Melville.

D.J. Montalto, the parent of junior and photo student Delaney Montalto, helped select 25 Photography 2 students to explore the showroom at Canon U.S.A.’s new office building. The students were given a taste of Canon through a number of presenters who covered various topics, including Canon's mission statement, intern program, photography and printing equipment, medical equipment and virtual reality devices. The students also enjoyed a hands-on experience with all of the items in the showroom.

According to Johnides, Canon’s staff was impressed with the level of enthusiasm and photography knowledge shown by the students and shared information regarding the visit via Twitter.
