Elliott Coleman Landscape and Property Photographer, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire
Elliott Coleman is a professional landscape photographer based in Carmarthenshire, South West Wales and is best known for his images of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, South Wales and the Brecon Beacons.
Elliott runs 1-2-1 tuition sessions for new, aspiring photographers covering all aspects of landscape photography and post processing using Lightroom and Photoshop.
A selection of my work is available as limited edition prints, each printed on high quality 100% cotton based fine art paper, is signed and numbers and includes an embossed certificate of authenticity.
When Elliott's not out in the countryside chasing sunrises, he can usually be found photographing residential and commercial properties around Wales.
Fed up with poor quality estate agent photographs when buying his own property, he realised that there was a gap in the market for good quality, in focus, well lit, straight walled photographs to market your property.
Whether you are selling your home or advertising your guest house or B&B, Elliott will ensure eye catching imagery sure to capture the attention of your target market.
Hi, I'm Elliott. I discovered my love for photography in 2006 after buying my first DSLR (a Canon 350D). At the time we lived in the East Midlands and being an outdoor family we spent much of our free time walking in and around the Peak District. I'd bought the camera to document our trips out and thus landscapes photography became my natural genre of choice.
In 2009 I was made redundant from a job that I truly disliked and after setting up a successful online ecommerce business, we took the opportunity to move away from the hustle and bustle of the East Midlands and in 2001 we found ourselves in South West Wales. We've never looked back. As a bonus, I have the Pembrokeshire Coastline a few miles to the west and the Brecon Beacons a few miles to the east, so I'm never short of a willing landscape to photograph, although the Welsh weather usually has other plans.
I was born in London but moved to South Africa with my parents in 1980. I grew up in SA, finished my schooling and served in the National Defence Force before finding work in the IT sector and setting up and running my own IT company for 10 years. I met my wife Melissa in SA in 1998 and we got married in 2000. We also have a son, Cameron who was born in SA, a Jack Russell (Bailey), a cat and a horse.
We saw the millennium in while camping on a beach in Mozambique.
A cold beer, biltong, rare steak, sunrises and rugby (I even support Wales over the Springboks, much to my sons horror)
The cold and getting out of bed early, especially the 2-3am alarm calls for summer sunrises.
While great gear can certainly help you get the shot, it doesn't make you a better photographer. A great image can be shot with just about any camera but if you are really interested in the gear I use, here's my kit list.
