The village of Hauteluce in French Alps. Alps wildlife.
Hauteluce is a small village of 800 inhabitants located in the Savoy region in the French Alps. The main activity is agriculture with cattle: race Tarine and race Tarine. Cows produce milk used to make the Beaufort cheese and Tomme de Savoie cheese. Time does not seem to have taken hold on this small alpine lock dominated by the impressive dam named Girotte that holds 630 million cubic meters of water. The rhythm of the days of spring is made by the bells of cows that leave early in the morning to the pastures. Two hours before dusk, the farmers bring them back in the stalls that occupy the ground floor of large houses built of wood.
Hauteluce area is a paradise for exploring the alpine fauna: marmots, badgers, squirrels, foxes, buzzards, woodpecker, fox, etc. Like most European species, animals are difficult to observe. It takes time to observe and to photograph them. Each species has its territory and habits. Patience and persistence are two key words to bring back memories.

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.
