Landscape Photography: Sublimate the Beauties of Landscapes
Landscapes have always captivated us in an indescribable way. We have often been struck speechless by aspects of a landscape that we had not dreamed of. It is rarely possible to describe what we see or the emotions that we experience. Photography allows us to capture those extraordinary moments when light and color combine to create incredible beauty.
Exploring Treasures Near and Far
Through our landscape photographs, we show both far-away landscapes, which are sometimes difficult to access and those hidden treasures just outside your doorstep. When we look at a landscape, we try to act if it were the first time we have ever seen it, even if we walk by it every day.
We are always looking for hidden aspects of landscapes to show people something that they have never seen before, and to continue to surprise our audience with the beauty of the landscapes that they see every day.
Experiencing the Beauty of Landscapes
Have you ever had the opportunity to be on top of a hill and to look down at the cloud-covered valley below? Have you ever felt the wonder of contemplating the Grand Canyon just as the first rays of sunlight reach the horizon? Have you ever seen a landscape during the blue hour? Have you ever been left speechless in awe as the rising sun slowly reveals an underwater landscape in the Red Sea?
We have had the chance to observe these scenes, and many others as well. We have felt emotions which it is impossible to describe. These are magical moments which only last a few minutes. The natural beauty of landscapes is always breathtaking, and we delight in the wonders that we see. To best display them to others, we chose landscape photography. It allows us to carry all the values of these natural beauties.
Two Approaches: Color or Black and White
First, to be in harmony with our artistic vision of photography, we find the lighting which complements the unique aspects of a landscape best and then photograph it in that light. We attach importance to the eye-catching details of a landscape.
For us, the primary purpose of landscape photography is to capture the atmosphere surrounding a landscape at a certain time. Depending on the season and the time of day, the same landscape may look very different at various times.
Second, black and white photography is a suitable photographic technique for many nature scenes. It requires a separate way of thinking from color photography. A black and white photograph needs to be planned from the choice of framing to the post-processing on a computer. Photography in black and white involves its own philosophy of photography, and black and white photos can convey certain emotions that cannot be expressed through color photos.

Black-and-white photographs immediately emphasize the point of interest. The viewer’s gaze is guided by geometric shapes, lines of flight, perspectives, and the contrast between light and dark. These elements enable the viewer to understand the message behind the photograph’s meaning. We could simplify this by saying that a black-and-white photograph further eliminates distractions to deliver its essential message. Color photographs allow digressions and may lead the viewer to the message by secondary ways. Black and white is a more direct creative technique.
Landscape portfolio: Two Differents Approaches
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.
