In these texts, we chose to share our tips and explain how to create interesting and creative photos. Our goal is to help photographers to improve their creativity in nature photography whether for wildlife, underwater or landscapes.

Art photography is necessary and useful

We are two professional photographers passionate about the beauties of nature. We have chosen to share our passion with the greatest number of people whether they are photographers or not. Indeed, loving the beauties of nature is universal.

To express our emotions, our feelings we chose photography and artistic photography. Our art photography collections are organized into two themes "Around the Mind" and "Around the World". We chose two styles to highlight them "Shades of blacks and whites" and "Lights and colors".

Buying an art photograph is a very special act. Indeed, why pay a photographic work? The answer is simple. We found it after years of work. The price of an art photograph is not related to our name or to our talent. It is not a matter of art either. All that matters is the feeling it gives birth to when you look at it.

But learning to look at a art work requires time, patience and some knowledge. That is why we decided to write these blog posts that are not only for photographers wanting to improve their creativity but also for people interested in buying art photos but not understanding why to do it. We hope that these few articles selected from our general columns will give you answers to all the questions you ask yourself.

Amar and Isabelle Guillen. Professional Photographers of nature.

We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.

We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.

We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.

We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
