The banks of the Gironde estuary in Charente-Maritime, France
The pictures from the banks of the Gironde estuary that we display in this gallery were taken in the department of Charente-Maritime. They were taken during the winter and spring and are part of a wider project on the Charente-Maritime over the 4 seasons.
The Gironde estuary is 75 km long and 12 km wide at its mouth. It is the largest in Western Europe, covering an area of 635 km2. The Gironde estuary is the joint of two rivers, the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, which join their ongoing Ambès beak. He gave his name to the department of Gironde.
One of the main characteristics of the estuary is the presence of several hundred hut with fishing net called "carlet" in French. They are used by traditional fishermen. Carlets are personal and the purchase price is approximately EUR 30 000. They are managed by a central agency located in Bordeaux.

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.
