I find the Chris Doyle/Wong Kar Wai collaborations to be particularly inspiring.

Great question. I'd have to say...

Michael Mann and Danti Spinotti - MANHUNTER, HEAT, THE INSIDER

Bergman and Nykvist - WINTER LIGHT, FANNY and ALEXANDER, etc

Sam Rami and Bill Pope- Army of Darkness and Spiderman 2, Spiderman 3

and of course...

Wong Kar Wai and Chistopher Doyle!!

Some of the most famous director/DP collaborations: Bertolucci/Storaro, and Lean/Young...

Also noteworthy: Kubrick/Alcott, Powell/Cardiff, Welles/Toland (although that was only once -- Toland also did great work with Wyler, Hawks & Ford), Hitchcock/Burks, Truffaut/Almendros, Ritt/Wong Howe, Pollack/Roizman, Allen/Willis, Spielberg/Kaminski, Ray/Mitra, Leone/Delli Colli, Huston/Morris, Lester/Watkin, Coen/Deakins, Altman/Zsigmond, Coppola/Storaro, Inarritu/Prieto...

Such a long list could be made out of this, so here are just two of my favorite Director/DP teams who have worked with eachother numerous times


Coens w/ both Deakins & Sonnenfeld (You can't mention a Coen film's cinematography without mentioning "Miller's Crossing")

Gilliam/Pratt (Come on, Time Bandits, Baron Munchausen, Brazil, Fisher King, 12 Monkeys...all brilliant)

As do Bryan Singer and Tom Sigel.

There are also some television collaborations that have produced very interesting work, although in that medium the collaborator is the producer, not a specific director. Two that come to mind are Tommy Schlamme and Tom Del Ruth, and Mike Robin and both Brian Reynolds (Civil Wars, NYPD Blue, and The Closer) and Chris Baffa (Popular, Nip/Tuck, and an MOW called Bailey's Mistake).

Ha ha, good one Tim. I'm still perpetually impressed by how Soderbergh is able to function as both DP and Director on set, and yet he's still able to give his actors some great direction towards what have generally been brilliant performances.

I'm really looking forward to seeing "The Good German", especially considering the technical rules of "old studio days" that he adhered to during production.

Oh but look, I've gone off topic...here:

Jeunet & Caro w/ Khondji

I'm a big fan of korean director/cinematographer Chan-wook Park/Jeong-hun Jeong, they've put out some incredible stuff in the last five years or so.

Godard & Coutard is a pretty obvious choice.

I also like what Melville & Decaë did together.
