  • Overview
  • "I am constantly staggered and inspired by nature both in its design and its beauty; it's led to a life long obsession to understand, document and save it."-Charlie Hamilton James

    Discover what it's like to live in-not just visit-two of the world's great wildlife parks. Charlie Hamilton James has been shooting in Peru's Manu National Park-the most bio-diverse place on Earth-for more than two decades. Fiercely motivated to protect the rainforest and its inhabitants, he bought a piece of land adjoining the park-only to discover that he had purchased an illegal cocaine factory along with it. His misadventures as an Amazonian landowner were documented in the BBC Television series, I Bought a Rainforest.

    More recently, Charlie has been living in Yellowstone, America's original wildlife park, for the 2016 centennial of the National Park Service. For a forthcoming National Geographic story, he has gone beyond the park's boundaries, creating a portrait of the larger ecosystem that Yellowstone supports.

    Join this critically acclaimed photojournalist as he recounts his unlikely journey from the Peruvian rainforest to the mountain landscapes of Yellowstone-plus a sneak peek at his latest project, inside Tanzania's Serengeti.
