Passionate about thunderstorms since childhood, Xavier admired them from his home. He knew how to approach and photograph them over the years. The beginnings were not very conclusive, the capture of the lightning with a silver SLR was quite difficult but the arrival of the digital facilitated the shooting.

A few kilometers from the very first storm hunt, today thousands of kilometers are traveled across the country in pursuit of the fiercest storms.

Passionate about nature since forever, Sylvain has been practicing animal photography for over 20 years now. He began photography (film) by observing mammals, and then little by little the ornithological photography became his passion. Its only ambition is to present at best the treasures that surround us, sometimes very close to home. The very confidential population of European Bee-eaters nest within an hour of his home and the Martins fishermen and the rare Gorgebleue meet a few kilometers from his home. He practices mainly the photographic lookout always having in mind the least disturbance of the wanted animals.
