Elton Lanius, 31, from Chesterfield, MO recently won Canon's Shoot Like a Pro Sweepstakes where he had the opportunity to shoot photographs from the sidelines of the game between the St. Louis Rams and Denver Broncos. Lanius had Rams team photographer Bill Stover by his side throughout the game offering tips on how to shoot sports action shots and he also received access to the post-game press conference, a Canon camera kit and image stabilizer binoculars. After the game his photos were displayed on the team's official website. Lanius' father Larry (left in photo) created a framed photo collage highlighting the experience for Elton's birthday last month.
Throughout the season, Canon will be selecting a total of 72 winners from nine NFL teams. Each team will host a winner at each of their eight home games throughout the season. Fans of the New York Giants, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins can attempt to “Shoot Like a Pro™,” by logging onto their teams official website.
