Our services: professional photographers specializing in wildlife, underwater and landscape photography
Taking a picture is much more than just pressing a button: it creates a very real connection between the photographer and the subject. Before you call us for your photo project, take the time to immerse yourself in our world. Find out why we picked this job and what our vision is. You’re the one who chooses the subject for your photo project, but, before you ask us to undertake it for you, make sure that our vision fits with what you want.
When you use our services, whether you need pictures for an exhibit or a documentary, or even decide to participate in a workshop, you are calling on us for our expertise. Controlling the color and lighting of a scene require skills and experience that only time can teach, and that we have gained through our years of experience.
Our professionalism, knowledge and ability to listen to our customers are our greatest assets. A camera, as sophisticated as it is, is not enough to get the photos you need. A good photograph has to be much more than sharp and properly exposed.
Three specialties, one goal: to photograph nature
We love the beauties of nature. Every place is different there are a thousand different ways to photograph it, each of them bringing out some particular beauty. Every moment in time is unique. The pictures that we take on a certain day are unlike any other pictures that we have ever taken or will ever take of that place. They have different lighting, a different tone. They showcase different elements of the scene.
We chose photography to share with others the emotions we feel when we observe nature, whether on land or underwater. Nature’s beauty is our inspiration.
Creativity is second nature to us
In all of our photo projects, we have the touch of creativity that makes all the difference. During our years as photographers, we have learned to use our initiative and imagination to create the images that our customers want.
Compliance with specifications
We have been professional photographers since 2001. During these years, we have perfected our ability to comply with the specifications laid down by our clients. We have a rigorous process that we use to make sure all our images comply with the guidelines. We always use innovative strategies to meet the budget and time limits for our photo projects.
Our artistic vision
Our photographic vision is to capture the ephemeral auras of nature that transcend the visible; to feel the balance of the natural elements and put them together to create harmonious compositions; to create photographs that will inspire others. We are artists.
Technology just helps us create pictures
Whatever technology we use in taking pictures, from our cameras to the software we use to edit our pictures, is a means to an end. We use it to showcase the beauties of nature. It is never an end in and of itself.
Experts in retouching photos
Even if we get exactly the photo that you want, it will still need a little bit of editing to make it absolutely perfect. When you come to us, you also benefit from our expertise in this very complex area. Our goal is not to create pictures of something unreal, but to enhance the beauty of what is really there.
Delivery of high end photographs
When you use our pictures for your exhibits or purchase our fine art photographs, we guarantee that the prints you get are of unparalleled quality. All our prints are made by a professional lab. The products and printing techniques which they use have been carefully selected and are not available to the general public.

Bilingual in French and English
We speak French and English and practice both languages daily. We can write technical articles or reports in French or English. This allows us to carry out projects in many countries.
Photography is our passion and our reason for living. But it is also the way we make our living. Successfully completing the projects requested by our customers is our highest priority. We are always at their service to meet the exact specifications. Our vision and our technical and commercial know-how are at your service. Contact us if you have a photo project, exhibition, or report that you need, or if you want to participate in a photo workshop and learn techniques for creating beautiful photographs.
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 ".
