For Martin Hartley, travel and photographing in remote locations and extreme climates is exhilarating and he relishes the challenge. Martin has spent more than 400 demanding days working in the Arctic and Antarctic on more than 20 polar expeditions and assignments.
His passion for using his hard-won expedition and photographic expertise to benefit the future of our planet has taken him beyond the polar regions to desert, jungle, mountain and oceanic environments. He has documented indigenous communities, corporate social responsibility initiatives and groundbreaking scientific programmes. Recently, Martin sailed with the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project documenting one of the largest multi-disciplinary maritime archaeology projects ever attempted.
