Mexico. Sea of Cortez.
Sea of Cortez is also known as the Gulf of California or Vermillon Sea. It is a sea of the Pacific Ocean. The mouth of the Colorado River is located at the north end of the sea. The Sea of Cortez is home to nearly 900 species of fish of which 77 are endemic, 33 species of cetaceans including bottlenose dolphin. We may also encounter blue whales which are the largest animals on the planet but also humpback whales that come to the area to reproduce.
We have not had the chance to see whales but we photographed the seals on the site of Los Islotes, manta rays on the site of La Reina and some whale sharks near the town of Lapaz. The most surprising in the Sea of Cortez is the diversity of species and their density. But the most interesting is the fact that each species inhabits a territory that is well defined. For us photographers, the Sea of Cortez is also unique because the blue light of the water is very dense. But we must recognize that this is a though journey because as usual nothing is guaranteed.

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.
