VisionMongers: Making a Life and Living in Photography is a book for any photographer who's ever felt compelled to combine their craft with the world of commerce and make the transition to becoming a vocational photographer. More like a sketchbook of ideas and wisdom than it is a system to get rich quick on photography, VisionMongers takes a look at the changing landscape of professional photography and the various journeys that can be taken to get there. Driven by passion and vision, and guided by his own unlikely journey to becoming a full-time photographer, David duChemin leads you through his own thinking and experiences, as well as those of others, as he discusses aspects of the craft of photography as well as the business of it, touching on everything from branding to contracts, from logos to blogging.
The book is peppered with inspirational and real-world case studies from photographers from various disciplines, including: Chase Jarvis, Kevin Clark, Gavin Gough, Zack Arias, Karl Grobl, and Dave Delnea.
Illustrated by these stories of other photographers, VisionMongers covers the practical aspects about what it takes to turn photography into a career, such as knowing your market, discovering your brand, finding a mentor, listening to your critics, and more.
As encouraging as it is realistic, VisionMongers is about making a life and a living in photography.
