We had the good fortune of connecting with Hélène & Olivier and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Hélène & Olivier, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
Nature makes us happy and feeling alive!
We love to be surrounded by the trees, mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and everything that is as simple as that kind of things! We love to travel, discover and hike inside those area, giving us the opportunity to admire and breath!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
To respond to that, i would first tell you that we aren’t professional photographers or travellers, but we really loved to be.. and we planned that during our world tour 2022.
We love photography and travel since many years and our first dream come tru when we have made our first roadtrip in the USA in September 2019. This was a revelation for us.
Our art is simple because we just want to show everyone and share our discoveries and every natural place that we can visit and find.
We just capture the moment and try to give to the photography some of the emotions that we’ve felt by seeing it in real.
Being a photographer isn’t simple!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If we had to visiting an area with our best friends, we don’t think it will be a city. We would love to share with them some of our best natural spot, starting the day early to travel and drive to the location.
Once arrived there, we would love to hike with them and made them discover the area and every viewpoint or original spot around.
To eat, nothing could be more great that a picnic surrounded by beautiful landscapes, sharing great feelings and stories with our friends, about our travel or people that we’ve met during those trips, or talking about photography, earth, etc.
After that long hike, we would love to admire the sunset. Moreover we could sleep and bivouac in nature to made a fire at night and cook together.
This night could be such great to share.
In the morning, we would live to admire the sunrise and finish the hike.
What could be more great that eating in a small and calm restaurant, to discuss with employees of the are and share our last day/night stories?!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
So many things have inspired us to be there and to have such awesome project, like the one we plan to do: a world tour in 2022.
The first person and story that has inspired us is Christopher McCandless (Into the wild book and movie). I can’t describe what feeling i had when i have read it for the first time….
