Animal: Magellanic Penguins
Location: Falkland Islands
(Islas Malvinas)

 

Backstory 

Look into the love Magellanic Penguins display as you gaze at this photograph.  Every year Magellanic Penguins navigate the seas back to a small island between South America and Antarctica to reunite and raise the next generation of penguins.  Magellanic are some of the most affectionate animals on the planet. The male arrives back to the same burrow each year and he waits to reunite with his same partner year after year.

To photograph these loving penguins I traveled on a solo expedition to a small island in order to camp for one and a half months living side- by- side with penguins. Camping feet away from Magellanic Penguin burrows allowed them to warm up to me as we both spent each day fighting to survive against the harsh and unpredictable weather.  Living with Magellanics as my neighbors helped me gain their trust allowing for rare opportunities to photograph natural behavior of these skittish penguin.   

As the sun rose above the horizon on a cloudless summer morning, two of my neighbor Magellanic penguins emerged from one burrow.  Magellanic Penguins are some of the most affectionate animals in the world and show their love to each other each and every morning and night.  I quickly got into position as the two stared into each others eyes.  I anticipated them to preen each other like Magellanic Penguins normally do, but suddenly one hugged the other slowly resting its beak on the the top of its partners' head. This moment shows why Mother Nature is truly the greatest artist of us all.


Each photo captured has a deep and intricate backstory, articulated above, that is printed alongside your print to give you the full behind the scenes look for each fine art photograph you purchase.


 

Print Options

Mediums

Acrylic Print: unmatched resolution, clarity, Dmax, vibrancy, and an unrivaled 3D perspective when observing the final product

What is an Acrylic print?  An Acrylic print is one of the highest quality prints money can buy.  It is the most popular medium purchased from us is our acrylic print identical to photos hanging in art museums due to the look and feel of the image appearing backlit.  Acrylic prints are a higher quality medium compared to the more common, and lesser quality, metal prints.  Acrylic come ready to hang with a built- in wall mount and require no frame.

Thomas only uses the highest quality print engineers in the industry to ensure standout prints by relying on proprietary methods superior to all other printers.  

Surface coat options: Both options offer UV protection, however the different surface coats will optimize your viewing experience depending on where you want to hang our print.  

Clear surface coat is best used in controlled environments with special lighting, or in an area with low glare from sources like windows.  Clear enhances your viewing experience in these environments by maximizing the 3D effect making the image appear backlit.  

UV surface coat is best used in areas with an uncontrollable lighting environment, such as placing the print near bright windows.
