6: Living a Life of Gentle, Responsible Rebellion with David duChemin

Time for me to come clean. I totally have a man crush on David duChemin and not just because he is one of the most talented, giving and purpose-driven photographers on the planet. His book changed my life. I was in the process of shutting down my photography studio and getting a "real job" when I happened to read his latest book, How to Feed a Starving Artist. It gave me the confidence to choose the harder path, re-focus my photography business and launch this podcast. David and I talk about life choices, pricing and forgetting that the rules even exist. P.S. David has written more than two books. I was just giddy with excitement to be speaking with David.
