This travel report published in the online magazine Scuba People in May 2013 describes how are the dives in the Gironde estuary in France. This is a completely unknown place by scuba divers. Therefore dives are absolutely amazing with huge sponges, a large variety of fish species. Currents can be strong and visibility reduced, but water can also be very quiet with a visibility of more than 10 meters. Welcome to an area where the underwater adventure still means something.
Amar Guillen is an artist photographer specializing in underwater, wildlife, and landscape photography. In 1987, his photographic adventure began while he 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 his source of inspiration. This has led him to entirely devote himself to a professional photographic career, allowing him to share his contemplative and artistic interpretation of nature. For the last fifteen years, he has photographed both the animals and their terrestrial and underwater natural landscapes. His photographic scenes are animated by the infinite mysteries hidden in nature.
Through his photographic gaze of nature, he strives to highlight the importance of its conservation. Amar lives and exhibits between France and the United States, both of which supply wildlife, landscapes, and cultures, providing inspiration for his work. Amar has published several books including "Lights and Colors of the Charente-Maritime Coast", "Reflections of Haute-Saintonge", and "The Secrets of Underwater Photography ".
