Exploring the World for the Love of Nature, Adventure and Photography
the WeXplorer started as a personal project. It has now become our Way of Life, our Identity.
We love Nature. We are Nature. We are One.
You will most probably find us on a trail, running or hiking, mountaineering, exploring the great Outdoors. This is where we spend most of our Time, in connection with Nature.
We are particularly addicted to Mountains. This is where we have our roots, there in the heart of the Alps, somewhere across France and Switzerland.
We love People. We believe in People, in their Dreams, in a better World.
All that we Are is that we Give. We could not Progress on our Path if it was not for the fantastic People we have met along the way.
We love Wildlife. We are Wild. We are One.
Take Action and Protect your Environment. It is our Responsibility to foster Biodiversity and protect Life support systems on our Planet.
We love Photography. Arts reveal the Beauty within Us.
We want to Learn to See and Explore deeper artistic resources so that the Strength, the Intensity and the Beauty surrounding Us is best revealed. This is our endless quest.
Nevertheless, Photography comes at the very end of a careful and very respectful process. Most of our time is spent simply observing and studying Nature and Wildlife. This process is without any doubt the most satisfactory part of Nature Photography. Getting a picture comes at the very end of the process and is definitely not worth any means.
We love Adventure. Adventure makes us feel Alive.
We feel a strong Impulse to push Beyond our limits, endlessly. There are no limits, only in our minds. We love to venture to the Edge of our limits.
Our mandala, another masterpiece by the little WeXplorer, expresses who we are, who we want to be, what we believe in, what we fight for.
Earth. Universe. Oceans. Mountains. Stars. Waves. Trees. Roots. Heart. Energy. Om. And so much more, all Together, as they are One, each transforming into the other, at every moment, in a never-ending cycle.
Take the time to look at every detail and feel the importance of each of them, building the Universe. Their relative part in the Universe is almost not perceptible, but without them, It would not be that perfect.

So, what does the WeXplorer do?
This would be the definition we would propose to the language academy:
The WeXplorer is the one who WeXplores.
Wexploring is traveling over new territories for adventure and discovery, watching carefully especially with attention to details and behavior, and establishing relations marked by harmony and affinity.
What is the WeXplorer’s motto?
Explore. Observe. Connect.
Important note: our motto is not only about the outer space. Our approach is certainly more focused on our inner world. Are they so different in any case? Aren’t they simply the same?
How can I become a WeXplorer?
protect your environment
Respect, protection, and conservation of the environment and animal welfare are our absolute priorities and prevail over any other activity carried out in the natural environment. They shall be yours also. It is our responsibility to look after wildlife and foster biodiversity, protecting life support systems on our planet.
All photos of wildlife have been taken with very special care, neither to stress the animals nor to interfere with their natural life cycles. Animals are wild, in complete freedom, in their natural habitat.
In all our artistic activities, we set ourselves the discipline to follow as closely as possible the rules of the most demanding photography contests, as Wildlife Photographer of the Year or World Press Photo, as regards the true representation of Nature and image editing. We are also fully committed to the ethical codes and guidelines of Nature Photography, like IFWP’s.
The aim of our images is to report on the natural world in an honest and ethical way. They want to be a true and authentic representation of Nature. They are in essence what was originally captured by the camera. Minor digital adjustments have been made ensuring the reality of nature is not misrepresented. The only exception is multiple exposure photography, all done in-camera, whose aim is to bring another dimension to nature photography.
Protect your environment. Take action!
