who we are
We are a group of emerging and established professional photographers, living in and serving the geographical region around Starved Rock. We believe that together, we can raise the bar for photography in our area. We also believe that when one of us does better, we all do better; and when we all do better collectively, we each do better individually.
Starved Rock Photography is, essentially, a marketing collaborative. We were founded by photographer Shanna Dugan of Peru. Shanna believes FULLY in the spirit of community over competition, and has built a successful local chapter of The Rising Tide Society. Shanna saw an opportunity in the industry to band together as a group, while maintaining our separate business interests. She believes that we can successfully build one another up, and that by doing so, all of our businesses will thrive.

We offer the opportunity to grow your professional presence through group memberships of local professional organizations, networking opportunities, distributed printed advertising, publishing opportunities, group branding.
