David duChemin is an assignment photographer based in Vancouver. He has extensive international assignment experience on six continents.
David duChemin’s idealism doesn’t seem to be fading any. In fact it looks like it’s settling in for the long haul. He still wants to use his powers for good (and not for evil); he still wants to save the world and be a resource to others who would do the same. As such, his main client work is serving the international NGO community.
David specializes in creating compelling images that are both aesthetically and emotionally moving. If you need a photographer who shoots from the heart, has a strong work ethic, and wants to go the extra mile for his client’s, David is your man. Killer bees in Africa? No, problem, he’s done it. Mongolia – 30C weather. Bring it on?
David has shot for a growing list of commercial and non-profit groups and the people who know this kind of thing also tell him that he’s also the author of the best-selling Within the Frame, The Journey of the Photographic Vision (Peachpit/New Riders 2009) and a growing library of eBooks on craft and photography.
David is sponsored by leaders within the photographic industry and is a member of the International Guild of Visual Peacemakers and Focus for Humanity.
