With a voice equally realistic and encouraging, photographer David duChemin discusses the experiences hes had, the lessons hes learned, and the practices hes adopted in his own winding journey to becoming a successful working photographer.When it comes to this personal, honest combination of craft and commerce, there is no single path to success. Everyones goals are different, as is everyones definition of success. As such, VisionMongers does not prescribe a one size-fits-all program. Instead, duChemin candidly shares ideas, wisdom, and inspiration to introduce you to, and help you navigate, the many aspects of transforming your passion into your vocation. He addresses everything from the anxiety-riddled question Am I good enough? to the basics--and beyond--of marketing, business, and finance, as well as the core assumption that your product is great and your craft is always improving.Along the way, duChemin features the stories of nine other photographers--including Chase Jarvis, Gavin Gough, and Zack Arias--whose paths, while unique, have all shared a commitment and passion for bringing their own vision to market. With VisionMongers, youll learn what paths have been taken--what has worked for these photographers--and youll be equipped to begin the process of forging your own.
