David duChemin is a world & humanitarian assignment photographer, best-selling author, publisher, and international workshop leader. Based out of Victoria, Canada, his mostly-nomadic life is full of adventure and creating compelling photographs on all 7 continents.
When on assignment David creates powerful images that convey the hope and dignity of children, the vulnerable and oppressed for the international NGO community. When creating the art he so passionately shares, David strives to capture the beauty of the natural world.
David's fire to create and share has taken him through winters in Russia and Mongolia, a summer on the Amazon, spending time among nomads in the Indian Himalayan and remote Northern Kenya. He's done assignment work in Ecuador, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ethiopia, Malawi, DRC, Rwanda, Uganda, Bangladesh, among others, and pursued personal work in places like Iceland, Antarctica, Tunisia, Cuba, Vietnam, Kenya, and Italy.
In November 2017 David will travel with FocalChange to Lesotho to create imagery for a project that seeks to increase young shepherds' access to education and increases awareness about the difficulties they face while working on the land that provides their livelihood.
There's a special place in our hearts for David, whose expertise and encouragement are very much responsible for the birth of FocalChange. We can't wait to share our Lesotho adventure with him - and with you!
