Quotes :

  • "Beyond technique, making motion pictures that tell a story requires a strong, honest connection with oneself."
  • “Put ourselves in tune with what's vibrating, what's alive, and from this space let beauty inspire us. “


Since 2014, Alexandre and Xavier have been exploring the world through photography and the study of living things. Coming from quite different horizons, they enjoy sharing, beating and inspiring each other on life's great subjects such as beauty, inspiration, grace, energy... presence... ect. More than a purely photographic quest, this is an inner quest, an exploration of the self and the world of emotions. From this space, when the flow is free, a form of spontaneity sets in and creativity is born... During these immersions in nature, if we're ready, we'll be able to recognize this beauty and express it, thanks to Alexandre's professional advice and Xavier's centering techniques. This alchemy between two people with a passion for images and life has already proved its worth! Since 2017, Xavier and Alexandre have been teaching and sharing their discoveries, and in this context, the members of the group become a source of inspiration for all, and the magic happens!


“Magnificent day of mindful photography with Alexandre and Xavier, who know perfectly how to pass on their passion with enthusiasm, patience and generosity. A delightful blend of technical sensations and conviviality, all in the midst of grandiose landscapes. Can't wait for the next session!”


“Depth, experience and authenticity are the words that describe it best. Thank you, Xavier!”


“Alexandre and Xavier are the perfect mix for an authentic, inspiring and nourishing trip.”


“Several photographic workshops in consciousness with Xavier have enabled me, step by step, to find the courage to open a door to a path I didn't dare take. Xavier gave me the desire to taste a new paradigm and the strength perhaps to break out of erroneous patterns of consciousness. He also instilled in me that kindly look, that touch of tolerance when the sacred fire seems to disappear, when doubt creeps in, when confidence falters. He reminded me that the marvellous is in the little things, and the joy of marvelling at the immensity.”

He teaches and shares these practices, which have changed his relationship with the world and creativity, with great joy and enthusiasm. Equally passionate about photography, he considers these moments in nature as a privileged opportunity to reconnect with himself and with all that lives, and beyond the image itself, what appeals to him above all is the observer's gaze. the observer's gaze.
