David du Chemin is A freelance humanitarian and world photographer operating from Vancouver Canada. His slogan is “Gear is good. Vision is better.” He is also a photographic instructor and author. In 2009 he released his first book “Within the Frame” It is a unique book that tries to help the reader balance their inner vision with the inner geek. I was introduced to David thru Creative Live. It is truly amazing what David has done with his photography. He started out as a juggler and performer then changed to photographer. He strives to use his work for the betterment of others. He is a self-proclaimed do-gooder and consistently tries to use his photographic skills to improve the world around us making us more aware of the wonders of the earth and its inhabitants.
I would describe much of David’s work to be in the National Geographic style. His images of people from around the globe are astounding. They capture a person’s spirit in each fold of the skin and every wrinkle emblazoned on his canvas. His scenery images are serene showing nature at its finest without the scarring of man’s influence. It is becoming harder and harder to find areas unspoiled by man’s presence, but David seeks them out to share these dying spaces with the rest of us for our appreciation. Man is stripping away nature. It is believed that nearly 25% of north American inhabitants have never seen the milky way due to light pollution. David Helps bring these dwindling experiences to people for their enjoyment and also to better make them aware of how we are affecting the planet and others around us.
David is a great photographer and person. Check out his work.
