As Man Ray famously said, “Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask ‘how’, while others of a more curious nature will ask ‘why’. Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.”
Inspiration. We can draw photographic inspiration from many different places. I personally draw photographic inspiration from many different photographers. It’s a great way for me to learn different tricks and techniques from the many professional photography websites that I visit.
I’ve put together a list, in no particular order, of some of my favorite photography duos in the industry that I’ve gained inspiration from. Why did I single out photography duos? I like seeing how two photographers take on photography with such a fresh, unique and stylish approach.
I sincerely hope you check them out and find the same inspiration that they have given me.

3) Bob and Dawn Davis
Bob and Dawn are a husband and wife photography and design team based in the Chicago area. They’ve had the honor of photographing ABC’s TV show The Bachelorette Ashley’s wedding to J.P. in Pasadena, CA. And many other “A” list weddings such as Eva Longoria & Tony Parker’s wedding in Paris, Salma Hayek & François-Henri Pinault’s wedding in Italy, La La Vazquez & Carmelo Anthony’s wedding in New York, Tracey Edmonds & Eddie Murphy’s wedding in Bora Bora, along with many other fabulous events with Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey, celebrity event planners Mindy Weiss & Colin Cowie. But that is not what defines them. They are passionate about their faith, their marriage, their family and making the best of their lives.
4) DQ Studios
Dave and Quin are an amazing duo from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. One cannot define them by categories such as “traditional” or “fashion”. Their drive to create fresh and innovative images stems from their passion for God, each other and family. This comes through each and every image as they capture that moment, which is filled with true emotion.
5) JONETSU STUDIOS
Camille & Chadwick Bensler are the award-winning owners of the bright and airy JONETSU STUDIOS, which is located in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant area. Renowned for their finished artwork in the form of custom wedding albums and Camille’s signature ‘Dreamscapes’, all post-production and design work is handled in-house by the couple personally. Due to this hands-on commitment to quality and creativity, a personal connection with their clients is very important to them.
