The village of Hauteluce in the French Alps

It was the end of our wildlife photography safari in the French Alps. It had been a happy week. We had spent long hours waiting for animals to appear. Sometimes they had, sometimes they had not. We had come to find chamois and ibex. We left with pictures of birds, badger and marmots. Wildlife photography is like travel photography: everything depends on external conditions. Almost nothing ever happens according to our plans.

Wildlife and landscape photography have many things in common. They are both practiced in the early morning and late evening. Every day, we had risen at 5 in the morning to be on site at 6. In the evening, we had arrived on site two hours before sunset and stayed half an hour after. In the middle of the day, we had taken the opportunity to explore the area and take a few pictures. However, the light at midday is too strong, and it drowns out the contrasts. We also stole a few minutes from our wildlife photography time to take pictures of Hauteluce and its surroundings in preparation for our return in September. Hauteluce is a typical alpine village, with barns by the houses and storehouses for food a few yards away from the buildings. Life moves slowly there. The cowbells ringing in the morning and evening seem to determine the rhythm of daily life. We were surprised to see that the farmers woke up as early as the photographers. The morning milking will not wait. During the time we spent wandering through the streets of Hauteluce, we took advantage of the opportunity to photograph some of the striking small details, such as fountains and lamp posts. We also took photos of the beautiful church.

The next step in our long journey through France will take us to the Charente-Maritime department. We are always searching for lights and colors. But that is another story. It will be the next blog post. We continue to savor every moment of our lives.

Amar and Isabelle Guillen. Professional Photographers of nature.

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.
