Tim Laman

Wildlife Photojournalist
For more than 20 years, photojournalist Tim Laman has been documenting the lives of little-known and endangered rainforest wildlife. His expertise in working in the canopy led to a doctorate in rainforest ecology from Harvard University, where he is a research associate in ornithology. He has conducted long-term fieldwork in the Asia-Pacific region, with the help of grants from the National Geographic Society, and he is a regular contributor to National Geographic magazine, with more than 20 articles to his credit, all with conservation messages. He continues to work on long-term studies of orangutans and birds-of-paradise in Indonesia and Australasia and is a firm believer that promoting awareness through photography is a powerful conservation tool.
