Who is Liam Alexander Colman?
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 an area with 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.
When were you born? I was born on June 19, 1990. A summer child with the paleness of an Englishman.
What do you do for a living? Unfortunately, it is not photography or content creation for any of my websites (but with enough support, I could reach that goal). My daytime job is in a small office in the city of Zurich, which I very much enjoy.
Why do you have so many websites? Originally built using Squarespace, I started with just liamalexcolman.net. As time went on it got far too crowded for my liking. I decided to remove my photography portfolio and stick it on a separate site. The idea was that this site would be my blog and general playground to test new things. Things started getting a bit out of hand from there. I now also run Lia & Liam, a food and lifestyle blog I created with my better half, and home-assistant-guide.com on which I write about home automation.
Can I work with you? Sure, hit me up through my contact page!
What camera do you use? I have recently become the proud owner of a Fujifilm X-T4. I use it for both my photography and videography. You can find a full list of the gear I use further down.
Why have an English website? Because the internet speaks English (and so do I).
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.

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.
