Hogs of forests and prairies in Charente-Maritime, western France

The hogs of the forests and the prairies of Charente-Maritime, France

Hogs are very present in the Charente-Maritime. It is found in forests, woods or swamps. All Charentais have seen at least a wild boar during a walk or drive. But taking a picture of a boar is another story. It is a wary animal, very fearful of people. It is the only big French mamal that is omnivorous. It is a gregarious species. The male is called boar, the female is called a sow. The young juvenile is called piglet. There is only one species in Europe. A wild boar can live up to 15 years but this is very rare because it is much hunted. A photograph to realize is when the hair bristles. Indeed, the hairs of the spine (the mane) are also erection. Photographing wild boars is difficult because Charente-Maritime forests are dense and very large. They fear people. Photo techniques are based on using blinds or approach.

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.
