Philip & compagnon
His name doesn't need an introduction, we believe. In 27 years behind the camera, Philip's become an idol to filmmakers and film fans all over the globe. If you don't know him and his work it's about time to change that. Several years ago he started shooting films for major clients like Lucasfilms on DSLR and mirrorless cameras, proving what an superior creative mind with sound technical ability can achieve with a lesser camera. If you're in doubt, watch him do his magic with a toy camera on drtv.

Patrick & compagnon
Patrick was only 19 years old when he became a compagnon ambassador. When we asked him how he makes those awesome alpine impressions he told us about his home on 1100m altitude and how a 30min walk takes him up to 2k. All was clear from that point on. Now his creative work gets him to all those places photographers dream about. And compagnon is always there with him, sort of.

Carmen is a fabulous photographer in her own right and also a compagnon friend for several years. But in unity with her husband Ingo she's the shining and incredibly charming half of Carmen & Ingo. Together they're claiming their spot among the superstars of Wedding- and Couple Photography in Germany. The large Candi Community around them certainly proves the point.

Jan & compagnon
Jan is in love with the mountains and nature itself. Both things aren't hard to come by at his home in Switzerland. And he makes the most of what he's given. When we first saw a shot of his backpack set in front of his tent, basking in the sun rising over some majestic scenery, we noticed his work. Now we're always curious about the adventures Jan will find for himself, his crew and his compagnon on the summits of the globe.

Max is actually from Stuttgart, right around the corner from our home. When he called us the first time, he was still a student of photography in Chicago. He amazed us with his urban style and somewhat reckless rooftop images. But Max is devoted to progress and certainly has the drive to go after what he sets his mind on. Returning to Europe and the Black Forest he's turning to travel and lifestyle photography. His compagnon backpack is still along for the ride.

His passion for compagnon started when Marco first mounted his bold strap on his camera. He is an award-winning fashion-, portrait- and business photographer so he appreciates professional gear that meets the highest standards while being relaxed enough to be seen with. The little weekender matches up with his demands beautifully. Together they represent the compagnon-way in the Netherlands.

Julia and Gil are wedding photographers. But that doesn't mean they are two among many. To create their fantastic results their individual characters and personalities are just as important as the gear. The close relationship with their subjects they can create in almost no time is second to none. That kind of true, pure and up close emotion shows in their images. They're obviously users of camera gear that can get under one's skin as well.
