David duChemin

"for the love of the photograph"

Enjoy a full day of learning and inspiration with this world & humanitarian assignment photographer, best-selling author, and international workshop leader whose adventurous life fuels his fire to create and share. Based in Victoria, Canada, when he’s home, David leads a nomadic life chasing compelling images on all 7 continents.

David's topics will be:

The Vision-Driven Photographer

David begins the day with an inspiring discussion of his photographs, and his journey as a photographer, before talking about the role of photographic vision and what it means to recognize, explore, and develop the way we see.

Light, Lines, and Moments

Vision is important, but it needs to be expressed: how well we do that depends not on how well we use the buttons and dials on the camera, but on how well we use our raw materials: light, lines, and moments. This discussion about composition and storytelling will free you from the so-called rules and encourage you to take a new look at the visual language.

Making the Image - Creativity and the Camera

Photographs are made, not taken, and this session is a candid talk about the creative process and the way we build a photograph, combining the technical with the creative to express our vision, or intent.

Better Stories, Better Photographs

Humans have been telling stories for thousands of years, often visually. Story is powerful and this presentation discusses how to incorporate the elements of storytelling into our photographs to harness that power and connection.
