Coral reefs of Daedalus, Red Sea, Egypt

Daedalus Reef is a circular reef topped by a 100 meter tall lighthouse, which can be visited. It was built in 1931 by the French to replace a metal tower dating from 1863 which was badly damaged and rusty. It is painted with black stripes and white. In front of the lighthouse, there is a small rail that allows to refuel guards using a small wagon.

The reef is located 40 miles from the Egyptian coast and is located halfway between Small Brothers and Zabargad. It measures 600 meters long by 300 meters wide. In Arabic, Daedalus Reef means Abu (father) el Kizan (glass). This term refers to the shape of the reef that looks like a returned glass table. Dadalus is a site that is very deep but is one of the most beautiful in the Red Sea. We can observe lots of pelagics fish such as manta rays, oceanic sharks (Longimanus), silky sharks, white tip sharks.

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.
