For the Love of Your Photographs

David duChemin

Craft & Vision has always been here for the love of the photograph and those who make them. That includes you. We want to build a stronger community around the ideas we teach and the people who both teach and learn here. One of the ways we want to do that is on Instagram. We're just gearing up and we hope you'll help us share your work. 

Every week we'll be featuring the work of photographers in the C&V community on Instagram—to share the images that catch our eyes, our imaginations, and our hearts. All you have to do is:

1. Make sure you're following us on Instagram. We're at Instagram.com/craftvision

2. Tag your photographs with the #craftandvision hashtag.

3. This one's optional. For a little while I'd like to give you feedback on your images. If you want it. And if I have something to say. Tag your photographs with the #honestduchemin hashtag and as long as you're following us on IG and you also use #craftandvision, that gives me permission to give you some thoughts about your work. I never give unsolicited feedback, and this isn't for those who want a slap on the back.  But I promise to be kind and honest. I won't get to everyone, but I'll try.

That's it. No hidden motives. No strings. We want to increase the ways we teach and celebrate. We'd be grateful if you joined us in the effort.

 

David duChemin is the founder and Chief Executive Nomad of Craft & Vision. A world and humanitarian photographer, best-selling author, speaker, and adventurer, David can be found at DavidduChemin.com.
