Photo Series in Color on the Landscapes of the United States
The United States is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for us. We often say that merely one lifetime is not long enough to discover all the mythical regions like the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, or the lesser-known hidden treasures such as the Canyon de Chelly or Mesa Verde.
A basic method in displaying the beauties of the landscapes of the United States is carried out through the theme "Lights and colors". This artistic approach is ideal for morning or twilight photographs. Indeed, these areas are vastly magnificent, and because of the lack of air pollution, the skies are pure. The mineral and vegetable forms are sublime as well. The use of color in these situations enables the photographer to not only highlight vibrant details, but especially to illuminate the variations of tone available to our eyes. The artistic approach of color allows us to grasp all the shades of cold tones that often juxtapose with warm tones to create ethereal and dreamlike scenes in accordance with our photographic vision.
This photo project, which is dedicated to the landscapes of the United States in lights and colors, naturally occurred to us. For some years, it has been part of our limited circle of photo projects. Moreover, this photo project makes possible to better define our artistic identity and to associate our know-how with a well-defined region of the world. The photography of landscapes is one of the bricks of our general photo approach devoted to the beauties of nature. The mastery of techniques in this field has allowed us to develop a very special wildlife photography approach which we call "environmental wildlife photography".
For most landscape photographers, the United States is often reduced to the mineral landscapes of the west. But this country has wonderful plant and mountain landscapes like the Rocky Mountains of Colorado or the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Since we have been living in the United States, we have traveled from east to west looking for new landscapes to photograph. Every year we spring from one surprise to the next. For example, on an animal trip to Bosque Del Apache in New Mexico, we were in awe of the wetlands of this region. We have already done many photo sessions of the large ponds, but we have not yet finished capturing the soul of this extraordinary region. We experienced this same experience with the Madera Canyon in Arizona. We had photographed hummingbirds on the heights of the Canyon when, during a session using blinds, we realized some pictures of landscapes that struck us as fascinating. Since that day, when we go to this region, we share our time between the two disciplines: landscape and wildlife. This photo project "Lights and colors of the landscapes of the United States" has generated collections of landscape photographs.

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.
