Biography

Charlie Hamilton James

Charlie Hamilton James is a National Geographic Magazine photographer specialising in wildlife and conservation photojournalism. His wildlife photography is technically complex and often involves specially invented and engineered equipment. Charlie has a particular interest in using his cameras as tools to learn more about wildlife. As a conservation photojournalist he has covered issues across Africa and South America and in 2014 his work was showcased in the BBC2 television series 'I Bought a Rainforest' which followed Charlie as he travelled across the Amazon photographing the complex issues of people and wildlife.

Charlie is currently working on three National Geographic Magazine assignments including 'Vultures' which covers the catastrophic decline of vultures in India and Africa and 'Yellowstone' which covers the wildlife and people of the Greater Yellowstone eco-system in the USA. This is a team article along with other notable photographers including Canon Master Michael 'Nick' Nichols.

Charlie's work has won numerous international awards including several wins in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest – he won the title Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year twice in 1990 and 1991. As a wildlife cameraman and producer Charlie has won awards including the Royal Television Society award for Cinematography (twice), the Wildscreen award for Cinematography, as well as BAFTA and EMMY nominations.

Charlie also works as a television presenter for the BBC including 'I Bought a Rainforest', 'Halcyon River Diaries', 'The Natural World', 'Springwatch' and 'Autumnwatch'.
