David duChemin's Books and eBooks

Sometimes he pretends he has a Golden Labrador called Kodak because it seems authors should have a dog, and also because he always wanted his own Kodak lab (how long will that joke mean anything?)

(Way Too Much) About the Author

David duChemin is a humanitarian and world photographer, previously based  in Vancouver, Canada. He wrote this book in airports around the world in a jet-lagged stupor, and while living in his 1983 Land Rover Defender, Jessie, while traveling a long slow circle around the North American continent and trying hard not to think of himself as homeless. He did this until he fell off a wall while teaching in Pisa, Italy. The rest of the book was written while he rehabilitated and learned to walk again, so there was a great deal of pain meds involved. When you get to the fuzzy bits, that’s why.

David is a formally trained photographer, though that formal training was not actually in photography, but theology, in which he graduated with a four-year degree (which took five years) in order to pursue a twelve-year career in com-edy before stepping off the stage, to the relief of his audiences, to return to his cameras and begin photographing vocationally and leaving pieces of his heart on seven continents.

David likes single malt whisky from Islay, hammocks, and also long walks on the beach. Sometimes he pretends he has a Golden Labrador called Kodak because it seems authors should have a dog, and also because he always wanted his own Kodak lab (how long will that joke mean anything?). He is also a best-selling author, which means he will one day inherit the basement full of his books that his mother has been furiously ordering. The three books preceding this one are Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision; Vision Mongers: Making a Life and a Living in Photography and Vision and Voice:
Refining Your Vision in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. He’s also the author and publisher of a growing library of ludicrously inexpensive ebooks, which can be found at CraftAndVision.com.
