My name is Alain Guillou
I'm from: Herbignac - South Brittany / Europe
is to provide a visual escape and dreams to people while searching for a new point of view and for the excitement to discover the rare image of the day. While doing so I love to sail, walk, jump, fly, climb or ride my Toxy ZR recumbent bike to reach that very unique position at a given time.
love that job because it put me into any kind of situation, meeting any
sort of people and seeing unique things anywhere in the world being a
witness of the incredible beauty of our planet. My greatest reward is
that so particular smile or that very specific spark of happiness shining
in the eye of a reader looking at one of my pictures.

The Snows aren't Eternal anymore ! Alain decided to help informing the largest possible public about climate heat issue.man
