Tim Laman is a field biologist and wildlife photojournalist. Tim first went to the rain forests of Borneo in 1987 and the Asia-Pacific region has been the major focus for both his scientific research and photography ever since. 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 by becoming a regular contributor to National Geographic. He has eighteen articles to his credit to date, all of which have had a conservation message. Some have focused on endangered species such as Orangutans, Proboscis Monkeys, or Hornbills, while others, such as a series of articles on Conservation International’s Biodiversity Hotspots, have highlighted regions under intense pressure. Tim firmly believes that promoting awareness through photography can make a difference for conservation.
