Tim Laman is a wildlife photojournalist, explorer, and filmmaker. His cameras are his tools for telling the stories of rare and endangered wildlife, and revealing some of earth’s wildest places. He has photographed on all seven continents, and regularly travels to some of the most remote corners of the earth to explore and document poorly known species and promote awareness and conservation. From the rain forest canopy in Borneo to the coral reefs of Papua, from mountain peaks in New Guinea to the seas of Antarctica, Tim spends many months a year on expeditions to study and photograph the biodiversity of earth’s richest realms. He has worked on assignment for the likes of National Geographic magazine - (where he has published over 20 feature stories), the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and the BBC.
Tim’s work has garnered numerous awards, including a 1st place award from World Press Photo in 2016 for his photo essay “Tough Times for Orangutans.” Other recognition includes fifteen winning images in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, the top honor from the North American Nature Photography Association, and multiple awards from Nature’s Best Photography. Tim is a fellow of the Explorer’s Club and the International League of Conservation Photographers.
Tim trusts the irreplaceable moments he captures to his SanDisk Extreme memory cards, which have never let him down. He was invited to join the SanDisk Extreme Team in 2015.
