Two professional photographers living in Texas, USA
Texas offered us all the conditions we wanted to satisfy our passion for the beauties of nature. Unusual lighting conditions around the Gulf of Mexico and the nearby wetlands are a real gift to us and make these some of our favorite places to photograph.
Incredible lights and colors, inspiration for us
We chose photography as a way to show others the beauties of nature and preserve all the special moments that we live. We like to use unique lighting to bring out the beauty of our subjects. Texas, thanks to its geographical location, offers us many opportunities to do this.
We always try to look beyond the obvious things in nature. We found an infinite source of inspiration for our landscape, seascape and wildlife photographs in Texas. Its environment offers us countless opportunities to carry out our artistic vision.
A wide variety of environments
On land in the forests and the wetlands, and under the sea in the Gulf of Mexico, we found a multitude of beautiful, captivating subjects which urge us to record the beauty and fragility of nature.
Texas gives us extraordinary opportunities to express ourselves artistically through photographing its varied landscapes and seascapes. Texas gives us the opportunity to be in harmony with our vision of photography.
An ideal area for wildlife, landscape and underwater photography
Landscape, wildlife and underwater photography are perfect ways to showcase the natural beauty of the region, while opening up opportunities for artistic creation.
The birds of the coast wetlands, the mammals in the forests, and landscapes of Palo Duro and Big Bend offer us many good opportunities to create great photographs. The Gulf of Mexico is one of our favorite places for underwater photography.
Sharing our love for Texas’ beauty with other photographers
We also love to meet other photographers passionate about the beauties of nature, so we organize photo trips and workshops in Texas. We share our techniques and our knowledge about the behaviors of wildlife and the environments found here. These workshops are wonderful opportunities for us to share our passion and our expertise with curious photographers and to help them move forward in their quest for inspiration. Sharing our techniques often helps participants in our photo trips find new creative inspiration.

Isabelle and Amar Guillen are two photographers specializing in underwater, wildlife, and landscape photography. In 1987, their photographic adventure began while they both prepared for a degree in computer engineering. The visual beauty offered by the sumptuous surrounding landscapes and the wildlife held within began (and continues) to be their source of inspiration. This has led them to entirely devote themselves to a professional photographic career, allowing them to share their contemplative and artistic interpretation of nature. For the last fifteen years, they have photographed both the animals and their terrestrial and underwater natural landscapes. Their photographic scenes are animated by the infinite mysteries hidden in nature.
Through their photographic gaze of nature, they strive to highlight the importance of its conservation. Isabelle and Amar live and exhibit between France and the United States, both of which supply wildlife, landscapes, and cultures, providing inspiration for the Guillen's work. Isabelle and Amar have published several books including "Lights and Colors of the Charente-Maritime Coast", "Reflections of Haute-Saintonge", and "The Secrets of Underwater Photography ".
