Charlie Hamilton James

Charlie Hamilton James is a photojournalist who specializes in wildlife and conservation. His work requires specialized equipment, much of which he makes. Hamilton James has a particular interest in exposing “the brilliance of nature” in order to better document, understand, and save it. He has been obsessed with kingfishers — brightly plumed ambush hunters — since he was 6 years old, and with otters since he was 10. Before becoming a photographer for National Geographic, he had a long career in television working as a cameraman, series and executive producer, and presenter for the BBC’s prestigious Natural History Unit.
