A Video Series About Becoming a Stronger Photographer

This is the second chapter of The Created Image conference held in Vancouver, where David duChemin was joined by Steve Simon and Piet van Den Eynde for an intense two days of talking about making compelling photographs, from learning to see and honing the skills that have nothing to do with the camera and everything to do with making images, to the power of visual storytelling and the digital darkroom.

What we packed into these two days of education was enough to stretch even the largest brains and hearts.  And knowing that not everyone can afford the time or money to travel for an event like this, we filmed it, and after months of editing, we've cut it down to just over 12 hours of great content from three people who live and breathe this craft.
