Tim Laman

Tim Laman credits his childhood in Japan — where he had ready access to the mountains and oceans — for his strong interest in exploring nature, both above and below water. As a field biologist and wildlife photojournalist, his pioneering research in the rain forest canopy in Borneo led to a PhD from Harvard and his first National Geographic article in 1997. Since then, he has pursued his passion for exploring wild places and documenting little-known and endangered wildlife. Laman developed a reputation for capturing shots of nearly impossible subjects, such as gliding animals in Borneo, displaying birds of paradise and some of the most endangered birds in the world. He believes that promoting awareness through photography can make a difference in conservation.
