Tim Laman Biography

Tim Laman is a field biologist, wildlife photojournalist, and filmmaker. Since getting his Ph.D. from Harvard for pioneering research in Borneo’s rainforest canopy, his cameras have been 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. Working in extreme environments from the rain forest canopy in Borneo to the coral reefs of Papua, and from mountain peaks in New Guinea to the seas of Antarctica, Laman spends many months a year on expeditions to study and photograph the biodiversity of earth’s richest realms. He is most well known for his long-term work on birds-of-paradise and orangutans.

He has published 23 feature stories in National Geographic magazine, as well as worked on films for National Geographic Channel, BBC, and Netflix. His filming credits include the BBC’s “Planet Earth II” and “Seven Worlds – One Planet”, as well as Netflix’ “Our Planet – Jungles” which was nominated for an Emmy for Best Cinematography in 2019.

Laman’s work has garnered numerous awards, including the overall prize Wildlife Photographer of the Year in 2016, twenty other winning images in that competition over the years, a 1st place Nature Story from World Press Photo, and the North American Nature Photography Association’s “Nature Photographer of the Year”.

Laman is a fellow of the Explorer’s Club and of the International League of Conservation Photographers, and is a Associate of the Ornithology Department at Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology, as well as the co-founder of the Birds-of-Paradise Project at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Speaking Topics
  • Exploring New Guinea’s Lost Worlds

    With the most intact rain forest in the entire Asia-Pacific, New Guinea’s forests represent one of the last great wilderness areas on the planet. Over the past eight years, Laman has been exploring the island nation to document its incredible biodiversity, including birds of paradise and bowerbirds, as well as rarely seen species from the “lost world” of the Foja Mountains such as a spike-nosed frog and the world’s smallest kangaroo.

  • Canopy to Coral Reef: Adventures of a National Geographic Photographer

    From the ocean depths to the tops of the tallest trees, Tim Laman goes to any length to come back with the shot for National Geographic. In the course of shooting over 20 stories for the magazine in all kinds of places, Tim has created some really jaw-dropping images, all while having some pretty eye-opening experiences. In this inspiring and entertaining presentation, he shares some of his best photographs, as well as the trials and tribulations of life in the field.

  • Birds of Paradise: A Wonder of the World

    The birds of paradise are some of Earth’s most exceptional, yet little known, treasures. Laman made it his mission to photograph—for the first time in the wild—all 39 species of this incredibly diverse group of birds. He and collaborator Ed Scholes studied and documented the birds in stunning photographs, videos, and audio recordings. On stage, Laman shares the challenges, discoveries, and adventures from 18 expeditions over eight years in search of these elusive wonders.
