David is an assignment photographer based in Vancouver. He has extensive international assignment experience on 6 continents.

At 39 years old, David duChemin’s idealism doesn’t seem to be fading any. In fact, it looks like it’s settling in for the long haul. He still wants to use his powers for good (and not for evil); he still wants to save the world and be a resource to others who would do the same. As such his main client work is serving the international NGO community.

David specializes in creating compelling images that are both aesthetically and emotionally moving. If you need a photographer who shoots from the heart, has a strong work ethic and will go the extra mile for his clients, David’s your man. Killer bees in Africa? No problem, he’s done it. Mongolia in -30C weather? Bring it on.

David has shot for a growing list of commercial and non-profit groups and the people who know about this kind of thing tell him he's also the author of the best-selling Within The Frame, The Journey of Photographic Vision (Peachpit/New Riders, 2009) along with Vision Mongers, Vision & Voice, and a growing library of eBooks on the craft of photography (

David is sponsored by leaders within the photographic industry and is a member of the International Guild of Visual Peacemakers and Focus For Humanity.
