Gift Idea: VisionMongers

“I hate cameras. They interfere, they’re always in the way. I wish I could just work with my eyes alone.”
-Richard Avedon

I had some sushi this week with David DuChemin, author of the new book VisionMongers: Making a Life and a Living in Photography. David’s a great guy–and one of the few photography authors writing today–that actually gets it. It’s not about gear or gimmick or guise. It’s about vision. Developing it and putting it to use. If you’re looking to do some in-front-of-the-television “black friday” shopping for that photographer in your life (ahem, yourself) this would be an excellent investment of your $29. (Amazon VisionMongerslink.)

Anybody already got a copy and care to share a review of VisionMongers or David’s other book, Within the Frame, below? [click ‘continue reading’ link below…]

[Hey, FWIW, I just got a tweet from David’s @pixelatedimage account that told me his ebooks are on sale today only for 50% off. Errr, that’s $2.50. Pretty wicked pricetag electronic books bearing such titles as: Ten Ways to Improve Your Craft and None of Them Involves Buying Gear. You can buy his ebooks at]
