Book Description: For those who want to make the transition into the world of vocational photographyâ€”staying true to your craft and vision, while fusing that craft with commerce VisionMongers is a great place to begin your journey. With a voice equally realistic and encouraging, photographer David duChemin discusses the experiences heâ€™s had, the lessons heâ€™s learned, and the practices heâ€™s 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. Everyoneâ€™s goals are different, as is everyoneâ€™s 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 â€śAm I good enough?â€ť to the basicsâ€”and beyondâ€”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 photographersâ€”including Chase Jarvis, Gavin Gough, and Zack Ariasâ€”whose paths, while unique, have all shared a commitment and passion for bringing their own vision to market. With VisionMongers, youâ€™ll learn what paths have been takenâ€”what has worked for these photographersâ€”and youâ€™ll be equipped to begin the process of forging your own.
