Since 2012 Ilvy Njiokiktjien is happy to be affiliated to Canon. First as Explorer and later on as Ambassador. Canon Ambassadors share Canon’s passion for storytelling. Bold and inspirational, the Canon EMEA Ambassador Programme represents and supports current and future generations of photographers and filmmakers.
As an Ambassador Ilvy has been privileged to test new products and to be right there at the table when new inventions are being created. But the most special part of the programme is to teach other photographers and students about photography and visual storytelling.
Canon EOS R5
Currently Ilvy works with Canon EOS R5. This camera has literally changed her day-to-day job as a photographer.
She truly became a better storyteller now that she is working with the R5. She’s quicker – and because this camera focusses so crazy fast – she has more time to spend on connecting with people instead of being busy with adjusting settings. It is just an amazing extension of all the great lenses and other gear she is all ready working with.
