Brothers Islands coral reefs, Red Sea, Egypt

The Brothers Islands (El Al Ikhwan or Akhawein) consist of two islands and are in the middle of the Red Sea about 70 kilometers from the village of El Quseir. They are two completely barren reefs that go down over 500 meters deep. The largest of the islands, located to the north, has a length of 300 meters. It is topped by a stone lighthouse built in 1880 by the British in the Victorian style and measures 100 meters high. The drop offs of Big Brother house two beautiful wrecks: the Numidia and Aida. The Numidia is a British cargo of 145 meters long which was carrying rail equipment and sank in 1901. The Aida is another wreck north-west and was an Egyptian troop carrier that sank in 1947 after the bad weather while on the rotation of the garrison. Little Brother is located one kilometer south of the largest island. It is a barren little island with heaps of stones and an Egyptian flag attached to a large piece of wood. It's in Little Brother that we can observe more hammerhead sharks.

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.
