Canon invites Nairobians for a free photo session where they can get a portrait photograph print of themselves. Customers will leave with a professional A4 color photo printed on Canon’s high-yield PIXMA G Series refillable ink tank printers that deliver better value without compromising on quality. It will be an opportunity for customers to exchange on the techniques essential to capture their best side for beautiful portraits.
