Liam Alexander Colman – Landscape Photography

I am a simple man with a passion for photography. Born and raised in the valleys of the Swiss Rheintal and still finding it hard to escape, I spend most of my free time photographing the great outdoors. I am privileged to live in area with a diverse outdoors and drastic changes during all four seasons. After a youth obsessed with everything digital and seriously lacking non-artificial light I started appreciating the forests and mountains that were blocked out by my shutters and have an urge to share the nicer sides of this planet with the world.

FAQ

When were you born?

My DOB is 19.06.1990. A summer child with the paleness of an Englishman.

What do you do for a living?

Sadly, it’s not photography. I work in a small office, which I very much enjoy and study psychology.

Why do you have so many websites?

I started with just liamalexcolman.net but it just got far to crowded for my liking, so I decided to take my portfolio and stick it on a separate site. Things started getting out of hand from there. I now run this website, liamalexcolman.net, home-assistant-guide.com, and liaundliam.ch.

Where can I buy your work?

I sell my photographs on multiple microstock agencies. A list can be found here.

Can I work with you?

What camera do you use?

I use a Samsung NX1 as my main shooter.

About that scar…?

I’ll admit it, I hate going to the hairdressers. So whenever I go, I get them cut as short as possible. During the weeks following a fresh buzz a scar appears on the side of my head. I acquired that during an operation following a broken jaw. That all happened when I fell off my bike and the fall was cushioned by my face.

Gear

It appears that I am not the only photographer obsessed with gear. Currently I’m satisfied with what I’ve got and am not looking to upgrade any time soon.

Camera

I shoot on a Samsung NX1 camera and have done so since 2015. This camera ticked all the boxes for me and I still can’t find an excuse to use anything else.

My other cameras include a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 (for lightweight travelling), a Yi 4K (excellent and cheap GoPro alternative) and a Ricoh Theta S (for playing around).

Drone

Since the beginning of 2017 I’ve been a proud owner of a DJI Phantom 4 Pro. It’s amazing how much technology they could pack into this tiny drone. The camera supports RAW for photos and D-Log for video, allowing me to edit the shots taken with it later.

Tripod

I use a Manfrotto Befree along with a Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W head. Both excellent but a bit on the heavy side. Weight has pros and cons, but that’s a story for another day.

Bags

I use a Cullmann Madrid Maxima 330 as my main camera bag. It’s good enough but I would like to replace it at some point in the not too distant future. For hikes I use a Manfrotto Off Road, an excellent rucksack with enough space for all of my gear and food.

Software

I edit all my photographs on an oldish Dell Laptop. I recently got myself a nice, big monitor and I feel like that really improved my workflow. For editing I use Adobe Lightroom CC and Adobe Photoshop. I use the Google Nik Collection on most of my shots.
