Tim Laman

Tim Laman is a field biologist and wildlife photojournalist. He has spent the vast majority of his career studying and photographing wild places in the Asia-Pacific region, a fascination that began with his first trip to the rainforests of Borneo in 1987. Laman’s pioneering research in the rainforest canopies of Borneo led to a PhD from Harvard and his first National Geographic article in 1997. Since then, he has continued to pursue his passion for exploring wild places and documenting little-known and endangered wildlife and biodiverse regions under threat. Laman has 21 National Geographic articles to his credit, and has published more than a dozen scientific articles on birds and rainforest ecology.
