Biography of Isabelle and Amar Guillen. Passion for the Beauties of Nature
Isabelle and Amar Guillen are two professional photographers specializing in nature photography, both underwater and on land. Since 2001, they have moved back and forth between the Charente-Maritime district, in France and Plano, Texas, in the United States. They started their company, "Guillen Photo LLC”, in 2003. Originally from France, they acquired their American citizenships in 2010. They work in both France and the US.
Photographing nature since 1987
They began taking pictures of landscapes in 1987 with an Olympus OM40, while they worked on their degrees in computer engineering. For 15 years, they discovered more and more beautiful landscapes, both on land and under the sea. Their passion for these beauties grew over time. Practicing photography as a hobby allowed them to capture and record the inexpressibly wonderful moments that they had the chance to live. Finally, they decided in 2002 to change to an artistic career and devote all our energies to recording the beauty of nature through photography.
Their photographic vision is to record the wonder of the lights and colors found both on land and underwater. One of their main goals is to show the delicate balance between the natural and the human. Today, they have many advantages to offer in their services as professional photographers.
Inspired by the contemplation of nature
Every day, it is from contemplating nature that they draw the energy to move forward. Nature inspires them to create artistic photographs. They are always amazed by the richness of the landscapes that surround them when they walk and the diversity of the seascapes when they dive. The observation of land or underwater wildlife gives them unmatched joys that are always new. For them, observing, appreciating, and respecting the beauties of nature helps them to see every morning as the beginning of the first day of the rest of their lives.
They chose photography to share the emotions they feel when they observe nature, whether on land or under the sea. Their goal is to create art with their photographs. They always try to transform the mundane into something more with their contemplative and artistic interpretation. They also strive to document nature with an eye for conservation and education.
