In February 2014 David is stepping away from his usual international workshops and taking a sabbatical. The only planned teaching event will be in Vancouver for The Created Image Conference, which we’re currently planning for July 2014. If you would like to receive priority notification about future Created Image Conferences and other appearances by David duChemin simply join this exclusive email announcement list.
This summer we’re hosting a new 2-day photographic intensive called The Created Image. On July 11 and July 12 we’ll convene on Vancouver’s Roundhouse Community Arts Theatre (Yaletown) for two days of teaching and conversation about the craft and art of photography, designed to take you deeper.
We’ve put together a curriculum to talk about the stuff that’s at the heart of photography, and strangely, the stuff others don’t often talk about or teach; stuff like visual language and composition, the art of editing, an introduction to printing, and photographic creativity. I want to help you learn to think and speak photographically on your own, not just memorize the so called-rules. No gimmicks, no rules, no fast-tracks, no hot-tips. Just the stuff that forms the foundation for becoming a stronger creative photographer.
The event begins on the evening of July 10 with a wine reception in Yaletown, a chance to meet each other and gear-up for an amazing time together. And then it’s full-tilt the next morning into a series of nine lectures, over two days, about creativity, composition, editing, workflow, printing, and other concerns of the craft.
There’s also an optional evening event called The Path to Pro, with my manager, and the author of Living the Dream, Corwin Hiebert, and myself, for those wanting a truly candid and highly actionable discussion about making money with your photography. You can add this special event to your seminar registration for just CAD $20. FYI – The Path to Pro registration will be opened up to the public (CAD $40) once the seminar registrants have had a chance to sign-up – if you’re interested in attending this event stay tuned.
Last year we hosted two Vancouver Gatherings and the response was incredible, and the feedback’s what made us want to do this again – and do it bigger! If you’re looking for a chance to dig deep into your craft, and share time with like-minded people, this will be an event you’ll never forget.
If you want learn about the seminar program, schedule, or registration details you can find it all on our Eventbrite page.
Attendance is very limited by the way; we’re anticipating a sold-out event, so act quickly.
