Saint John's reef in the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt

We decided to make a diving cruise to explore the reefs of Saint John during the coldest period of the year in the Red Sea. The water temperature is 23 degrees Celsius. It's 5 degrees below the temperature at the beginning of the summer and 7 degrees lower than in autumn. Because the fresh water, we hope to take pictures of silky or oceanic sharks. After a day of diving on the sites of Saint John which are certainly the most beautiful coral reefs in the Red Sea, the storm rages. It is accompanied by storms of exceptional violence. Underwater visibility is very poor due to strong winds that create large waves. The boat must hide to get protection against the winds.

It becomes impossible to take photos of scenery scenes because the poor visibility; sharks will remain a dream. Too bad, we must adapt our work. During the rest of the trip, we focus our work on the portraits and behaviors of fish. We are always in search of colors. We therefore prefer the colorful fish. After several dives, we notice that the sandy coves where the boat is anchored are full of life that we do not know. These small fish and crustaceans are not very colorful but the behaviors we observe are sufficiently interesting and unusual to take the time to photograph them. For each image, we must be patient because the fish are hiding in their burrows at the slightest vibration or the slightest shadow on the sandy bottom.

A work of patience and careful that will be rewarded by some beautiful shots.

Amar and Isabelle Guillen

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.
