Tim Laman is a PhD rainforest biologist with a thirst for exploration. He has turned his camera into a tool for communicating the stories of earth's little-known and endangered species in the wild, always with a strong conservation message. He works closely with National Geographic Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology and is a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. He has provided photos for 21 articles in National Geographic magazine, several of which he has authored himself; subjects covered include Orangutans, Hornbills, Proboscis monkeys, gliding animals of Borneo, Mangroves and Birds of Paradise - many of which have never been photographed before. Pictures from many of his assignments can be seen in the gallery below. He has won numerous awards in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature's Best competitions. He was the overall winner of the 2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and of the Nature Stories award in the 2016 World Press Photo.
