Title: Settling In
Species: Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea)
Location: Svalbard Archipelago, Norway
Description: Appearances can often be deceiving. This seemingly unremarkable Arctic tern, with its delicate feathers and fine features, is actually a world record holder that puts all of its competitors to shame. It makes by far the longest migration of any animal, travelling up 56,000 mi each year on its round trip between the Arctic and Antarctic. The average one lives for around thirty years and makes its first migration at around three months old, meaning that it will travel somewhere between 1.3 - 1.6 million mi during its lifetime. To put that in perspective, that’s equivalent to more than three roundtrips from Earth to the Moon!

- The first thing that Martin will do when picking an image to be added to his collection is ask himself, "Do I love this picture?" He always begins with pictures he loves because it guarantees a strong emotion and exciting story behind each one.
- Once selected, an initial edit is carried out, and the image is printed at 17x24 inches for review. Further drafts are then created, with each iteration requiring refinement to make sure none of this detail gets lost during editing. If at any point along the way it becomes clear that there's not enough sharpness, the image is discarded.
- The next step is to print a strip of the image on chosen exhibition quality paper. The proof is reviewed for any needed edits before finally being created into a master copy used in all print runs!
- Only then is the print is then created using the best high definition equipment and most refined materials (Gallery quality papers), overseen by master printers.
- The entire process takes between two and four weeks per image, but it's worth the wait. The final images are of such high quality that you won't believe your eyes when they're hanging on in your home or in your office.
