    Courage is not the absence of fear.David duChemin

    Tamara met with World & Humanitarian Photographer and Author David duChemin to discuss his intriguing transition into photography by way of twelve years as a comedian in show business, following theology school. As a passionate champion for people doing work they love, David offers candid glimpses into the highs and lows of his fast-moving photography career and relays sage advice to those running small businesses.

    Join in to hear some surprising information about how David accidentally fell of a wall in Italy and what it actually felt like to fall 30 feet onto concrete (after just joking about swimming in the river below). The upside of a rather grueling recovery for David has been the opportunity to finish his fourth book, Photographically Speaking, which he considers his best one yet. And as he slowly learns how to walk again, David’s life is a testament to what he’s been saying for years: life is short. And nothing is guaranteed.

    David has gained a lot of wisdom on his journey to becoming the successful photographer he is today. Here are some of the insights he shares in this episode:

    • Listen to your fear, hear it, face it, and take risks, just choose your risks, so you have no regrets.
    • Don’t be a “Lone Ranger” Stop doing it all on your own, get a team to support you, let them do what they do well, and you do what you do well.
    • Get out or stay out of debt.

    David duChemin is a world & humanitarian photographer, best-selling author, and international workshop leader. Based in Vancouver, he specializes in creating compelling images that are both aesthetically and emotionally moving. David has shot for a growing list of commercial and non-profit groups, and is a member of the International Guild of Visual Peacemakers and Focus for Humanity.
