The landscapes of Big Bend National Park in the state of Texas
Big Bend National Park is located in the southwest of the state of Texas in the United States. It is part of the vast Chihuahuan Desert, which covers the northern Mexico and the southern United States. Big Bend is covered 90% by desert landscapes made up of mountains, crevices and cracks.
For landscape photographers, this is an absolutely amazing area for unique photos. Indeed, Big Bend is crossed by the famous Rio Grande River that separates Mexico from the United States. All along the river silt that has settled on the banks allows the development of vast green areas. They contrast with the supernatural beauty and totally bare minerals desert landscapes. The colors and the lights at dawn and dusk reveal a generous nature where cacti and yuccas are trying to survive in an arid region where temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius in the day and 0 degrees Celsius at night.
Photographing the Big Bend Park is not easy because it is immense. The area covers 3,300 km². The park is crossed by few roads and paths that allow travel by car. But the key is to walk to create good pictures. A perfect knowledge of the area is essential to being in the right place at the right time. We have been several time to Big Bend but we have not yet exploited the possibilities. We even wonder if an entire life will be sufficient to photograph all the park.

We continually update our website with new and exciting features! As professional photographers of wildlife, underwater scenes, and landscapes, this mainly pertains to information about our work, as well as adventures we embark upon. Our professional photography blog is particularly written for photographers who are interested in discovering innovative doors of creativity through the medium of nature photography.
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.
