As part of Humans of IWC, we would like to present Kо̄ki Yamada, a Japanese wildlife photographer and a true IWC fan.
His work as a wildlife photographer has taken him to the Antarctic, Arctic, Alaska, Africa, the Galapagos Islands, and India. When he visited Ranthambhore National Park in India back in 2017, he became fascinated by the Royal Bengal Tiger, an endangered species. After this encounter, he continued his work and returned annually to the park, following and photographing the tigers in their natural habitat. His work with the Royal Bengal Tigers led him to win the 8th Nikkei National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year award in 2020.
