May 10th, 2014. Wildlife photo project about birds of La Dombes in France

May 10th, 2014. Wildlife photography trip devoted to the birds of La Dombes. For one week we photographed birds from floating hides moving us on several swamps in the region. Dombes is renowned for the richness and diversity of bird species because there are over 1000 swamps and ponds in the region. For this trip, the weather was very variable with a cold north wind. It was very unusual conditions for the region that have forced us to focus on birds such as purple herons, herons, egrets and night herons. We are fortunated to make several pictures of kingfishers. We put forward our know-how to capture the atmosphere of this region. We favored an approach based on environmental animal portrait.

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.
