Welcome to

Tim Laman is a field biologist, explorer, photographer, and filmmaker. His cameras are his tools for telling the stories of rare and endangered wildlife, and revealing some of earth’s wildest places, and he recently won the top honor in his field: Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016. His aims are to explore and document poorly known species, and promote awareness and conservation. Tim spends many months a year on expeditions to study, film, and photograph the biodiversity of earth’s richest realms working with the National Geographic Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology. 

Tim’s long-term project documenting the Birds-of-Paradise with Cornell’s Edwin Scholes continues with new expeditions and projects such as filming for the BBC’s new PLANET EARTH II.  

Current projects include 4K wildlife filmmaking, and ongoing documentation of orangutans in the wild in collaboration with his wife, Cheryl Knott and her GUNUNG PALUNG ORANGUTAN PROJECT.
