Shades of Black and White: Feathers – A Collection of Fine Art Photos
As wildlife professional photographers, we have always been passionate for the wetlands, but especially for the birds that live there, whether they are passerines or waders. Although the expressions and behaviors of the birds fascinate us, we are captivated even more so by their feathers.
When we use a floating hide to shoot water-tight photographs, we are accustomed to watching the feathers lost by their owners. When the feathers lightly drift on the wind, they have an undeniable photographic interest which most people tend to not notice.
The feathers are captivating for many reasons: their delicacy and mystery, their strangeness and lightness. Why did a bird lose these evocative objects at this place? What will become of them? Will they fly somewhere else? We will never have answers to these questions, which makes feathers so hauntingly beautiful?
Photographing feathers is challenging because not every feather is photogenic. To comprehend the purpose of this collection, we have made hundreds of photographs, searching for beauty, relief, and beautiful lights. Finally, we selected 10 photographs.
We thought black and white was the best way to showcase them. We have integrated it into our theme "Shades of blacks and whites". We played on the shapes and the reliefs to display them from the best perspective.
This «Feathers» collection is in line with our artistic approach. It is quite unusual for wildlife photography. We wanted it to be both surprising and creative.
All these photos are available on Masonite or framed. As photographic artists, we try to produce unique pieces of art. These photographs of feathers are available for sale in our online art collections or in the art galleries affiliated with us.

Experience strong emotions through nature
In a world where everything moves very quickly, where one headline chases another at the speed of light, where the slightest desire to purchase anything can be immediately fulfilled through websites, you will experience natural sensations like calm, serenity and tranquility through photographs showing the beauties of nature.
Our collections of fine art photographs reflect our ethereal, refined artistic vision. They are simple and evocative. But a lot of work goes into creating this simplicity. You know it's always hard to make things simple.
Each location or animal photographed was chosen both for its aesthetic merit and its ability to transmit messages that cannot be expressed by words. These collections were created to make you dream.
These art photographs present nature in a contemplative, artistic fashion. They preserve unique, evanescent moments. We worked hard to create scenes that would convey best the emotions you will feel.
A lot of patience went into the creation of each of these photos. They were planned to preserve images of unique moments that you want to have in your living space.
An invitation to calmness and introspection
These fine art photos will not leave you feeling indifferent. You will experience very special feelings as you contemplate these pictures of the nature that surrounds you.
These photographs invite you to look inwards and be calm. When you look at them, you will see the passing of time and reflect on the beauty of life.
These art photos will remind you of cherished places. You will discover unique places and magical moments. You will feel emotions that you can only feel in your spirit. This is the reason why we create our collections of fine art photographs.
The prints are made by a professional photo lab
A fine art collection is made up of art photographs published as limited editions under the control of the artists (i.e. Amar and Isabelle Guillen). The longevity of the prints is ensured by the printing technique. All our photographs are printed by a professional lab which we selected for the high quality of the prints which it produces and its professionalism. This lab prints all the photographs for our exhibitions. Each print is numbered, signed and accompanied by a certificate of origin signed by the artists. Only certain sizes are available.
Each print is signed and numbered by the artists
- Each print is signed by the artists in the back.
- The signature is on the lower right corner of the print. Each print is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity produced by the artists.
- The COA includes a numbered hologram, the title of the piece and its reference, the place and date where the picture was taken, the number of the print and the total number of copies made, the size of the print, the type of paper, the date and place of printing, and the printing process used.
- This document is protected against forgery by the presence of a ® Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibers. A second hologram, with the same number, is glued directly to the back of the photograph. This combination of certificate and hologram ensures that each hologram certificate of authenticity refers to a single piece of art.
- Each piece of art is then recorded on arttrustonline.com.
A limited number of prints of each photograph are produced
A limited number of prints of each photograph are produced.
The artists determine in advance the number of prints of each photograph which will be produced. 30 prints are available for one piece of art whatever the size and the support. After the first print is sold, we will never change the number of copies available.
Each photograph is mounted on Masonite
All art prints are mounted onto Masonite, which is "hardboard made of steam-cooked and pressure-molded wood fibers," to provide a rigid support. The mountings are guaranteed by the laboratory to ensure consistency and a long bonding time.
