About the Website
This website is a personal space managed by Olivier Robert, photographer (hereinafter referred to as the 'owner'). The blog articles are written by him. Their content is a direct reflection of his opinions. He reserves the right to express himself as he wishes, both in terms of the content and the style of writing the articles. His statements represent only his own views. Although it is not anticipated, if blog articles were to be written by third-party contributors, they would be published under the full responsibility of the owner. In such cases, the author of the text would be mentioned in the article.
Unless otherwise stated, the products and services analysed on this website have been purchased and tested by the owner. He only recommends products and services that he uses or has used. On rare occasions, he may recommend products or services that he would use and for which he is fully convinced of the potential benefit they offer to readers. In such cases, this specificity is mentioned in the article.
All opinions expressed on these pages are honest and remain those of the owner. He independently analyses these products and services with the interests of consumers as a top priority.
In all cases, any product that has been offered to him or made available to him free of charge in exchange for his analysis will be explicitly mentioned. However, a product offered or provided does not guarantee a positive review published on this website. A review is positive only if he believes that the product or service in question deserves it. The owner only reviews products and services that he deems relevant and suitable according to his selection criteria. If it appears that he is speaking as an expert on the featured products, he only promotes items for which he is genuinely convinced, based on his experience.
The owner is not compensated in any way for his product or service reviews, or any other topics related to his travel photographer activity.
It may also happen that the owner collaborates with brands mentioned on this website. In this particular case, these articles carry a specific mention of a commercial collaboration or a similar notice.
Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information provided on this website, the owner cannot be held responsible if it were to be found that certain information was incorrect. Likewise, he cannot be held responsible, either directly or indirectly, for any accidents or damage resulting from the use of products or services reviewed on this website, whether or not it is due to their misuse.
It is important to inform readers that the owner has commercial relationships through affiliate programs with several brands, products, services, and companies that are recommended on our website. Consequently, several articles published on the blog contain affiliate links. When you click on these links and purchase a product or service, the owner may earn a potential commission. This does not result in any additional cost to you in any form. It is solely an agreement between the website owner and the companies with which they have entered into an affiliate partnership.
The money earned from the commissions through these affiliate programs helps finance the website's management and maintenance costs, support analysis and research activities, acquire new products or services for testing, and so on. A mention specifying the products offered through an affiliate program may or may not be indicated in the blog articles. It is not always mentioned.
Amazon Affiliate Program
This site participates in the Amazon Affiliate Program. This affiliate marketing program aims to provide partner websites with a commission on each sale generated through a link to the amazon.fr or amazon.com websites. The commissions are defined by Amazon France and Amazon US and are available online. Consequently, as a member of the Amazon Affiliate Program, the owner may potentially earn a commission when readers make a purchase on Amazon.fr through this website.
As mentioned earlier, this commission does not represent any additional cost for the buyer. Once again, it financially contributes to keeping this website up to date and enriching its content by offering readers relevant analyses. Thank you in advance for your support!
Other Affiliate Programs
This website also participates in other affiliate programs through generic platforms. These platforms include AWIN, Commission Junction (CJ), 1TPE, and Impact.

Validity of Prices and Costs
Some blog posts announce prices and costs related to the items presented or the subjects discussed. These are stated for the purpose of informing the reader. The prices and costs of photographic equipment, accessories, books, transportation tickets, accommodation, entry tickets, or other items are valid as of the date of the post's publication. The author (or owner) cannot be held responsible for any changes in these prices and costs, whether they increase or decrease.
Although the author (or owner) makes an effort to keep the articles as up-to-date as possible, the information on prices and costs is subject to the pricing policies of commercial companies and the potential increase in the cost of goods and services over time. The author (or owner) is not informed of these changes. It is the reader's responsibility to do their own research to verify, if necessary, the validity of the prices and costs announced in the blog posts.
