If you follow the big names in professional photography – or have personally sought out photography as a fine art form – then you’ve likely heard about David duChemin. An assignment photographer based in Vancouver, David has shot for non-profit and commercial clients on five continents around the world. His portfolio of compelling and moving photographs – and his advice on discovering and refining one's own vision in the pursuit of great images – are the subjects of the best-selling books, Within The Frame – The Journey of Photographic Vision and VisionMongers – Making a Life and a Living in Photography.
It's not every day you encounter a photographer of duChemin’s calibre – and it’s certainly not often that a world-famous photographer decides to give away prints of his work. But as you take in David duChemin’s photography and follow his inspired writings, you begin to understand his personal vision and a portrait emerges that brings clarity to the free canvas print offer he recently announced on his blog...
Says duChemin, “Photography is an aesthetic art. For me, it's a means of getting out what’s inside and saying ‘Did you see that?’ My photographs are an expression of my vision and my passion and I take great care to create the photographs I do. For years, those images have primarily found their home online, in small print publications, and the occasional print. Increasingly I've longed to return to my darkroom days – days when my final output was a print, something large that I could touch, look at from every angle, and eventually give away because at it's heart I think all art is a gift.”
For the promotion, David selected a stunning photo from his collection of personal work, shot recently in Venice, Italy. The image has been masterfully reproduced as a gallery wrap by the same print lab he uses exclusively for his own canvas prints, Artistic Photo Canvas.
“APC’s quality, craftsmanship and service reflect the same standards I aim for in my own work. They translate my work into gorgeously rendered canvases that are colour-accurate and maintain the detail, textures, and nuances that I took such great pains to create in the first place. Their commitment to personal service and quality, and to creating canvases with a smaller environmental footprint, meshes with my vision for my photographs and my life.”
