This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.VisionMongers is a book for photographers looking to make the move to making photography a vocational career. Still driven by vision and passion, it's not a "get rich quick, follow these 10 steps to become famous!" kind of book. It's for people who want to follow their calling, and want to make enough money to keep doing it (and put bread on the table). It will lay out David's own path, knowing that the path may be different for each photographer. There will be sections on getting clients, launching your business, marketing/branding, and making sure you stay focused and don't lose sight of your craft.
The book is peppered with inspirational case studies from photographers from disciplines, including: Ami Vitale, Joe McNally, Chase Jarvis, Kevin Clark, Gavin Gough, Zack Arias, Karl Grobl, and Dave Delnea.
In addition to the case studies, VisionMongers covers the practical aspects about what it takes to turn photography into a career, such as knowing your market, finding a mentor, listening to your critics, general branding, and more.
