June-July 2014 : exhibition "The Lords of the forests of Charente-Maritime" in Royan, France.
Exhibition of 30 photographs of animals: deers, wild boars and fallow deers of the forests and woods of the Charente-Maritime department. Portraits and animal behaviors in natural environments highlighting the beauty of that unknown nature.
From June 6 to July 12, 2014, we present 30 photographs in the photographic art gallery D&S Souchon in the city of Royan in Charente-Maritime, France. Two years of work were needed to create these pictures of the lords of the woods the Charente-Maritime region. We spent hundreds of hours in the woods, forests and prairies to capture these special moments. We wanted to highlight the beauty of the deers, wild boar, fallow deers in their natural environments. We paid special attention to the choice of the lights to decorate and dress the most beautiful colors of the coats of animals. We wanted to show in a simple way, the natural beauty of this very misunderstood area for wildlife photography.
We wanted to show that the Charente-Maritime area has a lot of wildlife treasures unknown by tourists and local people. Mammals we photographed are fearful, discreet and fleeing humans. Yet with a good knowledge of the forests and habits of mammals and with a little bit of patience, it is possible to observe and photograph these animals that we nicknamed the 'Lords of the wood of the Charente-Maritime'.

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.
