Julien Amic

Sea & Nature photographer
Author of the books "Ouessant, Molène, Sein. Îles d'Iroise" published by Glénat (May 2022), "Ouessant, haute terre d'Iroise" published by Glénat in 2020 and "Geopark Armorique" also published by Glénat (May 2021).

Specializing in the landscapes of Armorique for several years, I work extensively with the Parc naturel régional d'Armorique / Geopark Armorique and the Réserve de biosphère des îles et de la mer d'iroise (Sein, Molène, Ouessant).

I'm fascinated by all aspects of the marine and island world, and by nature and the close ties that people have with it. With a scientific background, I'm a naturalist specializing in seabirds and cetaceans, and I've been involved for many years in the preservation of our beautiful planet, with a desire to make each and every one of us aware of the beauty and fragility of the environments in which we live.
Thanks to photo-identification, I have studied Mediterranean bottlenose dolphins with the Groupe d'Étude des Cétacés de Méditerranée, and my images have been published in numerous books and magazines ("Atlas de la Réserve de biosphère UNESCO des îles et de la mer d'Iroise", "Atlas de Mammifères de France" by the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, "la Provence" and "La Croix" newspapers, "Chasse-Marée", "30 Millions d'Amis" and "Terre sauvage" magazines, "La Calanquaise" and "Nature de Provence" journals, "Atlas des Mammifères de PACA"...).
I worked for the Parc national des Calanques for several years before finally settling in Brittany.

I work with several cameras, including a Canon 5DMkIV SLR, a Canon R7 hybrid and a Fuji X100F. My images are never modified in depth, never edited. However, I do rework the textures (grain, film, dust and scratches, to modify the overall appearance), contrasts and colors to bring out an atmosphere that is as faithful as possible to what I felt in the field when I took the shots.

In my opinion, a good image should combine aesthetic qualities with documentary value. This is true of all the photographs you will find here, and I thank you for your interest!
