Tim Interviewed by USA Today

This morning USA Today published a story on National Geographic’s Travel Flash Sale featuring Tim’s image.  Josh Hefner says, “National Geographic is synonymous with great photography, and few craft its jaw-dropping images like Tim Laman.”

The article describes Tim’s photo of two Japanese macaques in a hot spring.  His picture (above) is part of National Geographic’s flash sale that ends tomorrow.  You can purchase Tim’s signed image by going to National Geographic Creative’s webpage.

Exploring the Biodiversity of Raja Ampat, Indonesia

The Wayag Islands northwest of Waigeo in the Raja Ampat Islands, West Papua, Indonesia.  These uninhabited islands are a classic example of uplifted kart formations, and surrounded by spectacular coral reefs.

Indonesia is one of the biologically richest countries in the world, and I have had a long-term interest in exploring remote corners of this amazing country.  From the rain forests of Borneo to the coral reefs of the Raja Ampat Islands, to the mountains of Papua, I have made dozens of expeditions all over the archipelago, and will continue to do so in coming years.  There is so much to explore here.
