How long have you been a photographer?
A year. I picked up photography in 2015, as a way to learn more about color, composition and contrast. My full-time job is working as an art director in the video games industry. Photography is still my hobby, but something I wish to continue.
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
My name often confuses people. I am Eurasian; half Scottish and half Malaysian. Born and raised in Scotland and currently living in Canada. I'm not Japanese, or living in Japan! :)
What kind of equipment do you use?
Canon 5D Mark III and more recently a Canon 5D Mark IV (Thanks Canon!)
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens
Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Flash (and gels)
Adobe Creative Cloud Suite (After-Effects / Photoshop / Lightroom)
Gitzo Mountaineer Tripod
Lexar 1066x CF Cards
HOW DO YOU DO IT?
Do you sell prints?
Visit my store: www.society6.com/liamwon9 for a wide variety of prints.
Are you available FOR A COOL PROJECT?
I am always keen to collaborate with like-minded people. If you have a project in mind, please do get in touch. I have experience in graphic design, web, motion graphics, art direction, photography & video games.
Do you HAVE a photo book?
It is currently in development. I will be adding the finishing touches to my book for early 2017.
Do you have tips for beginner photographers?
Take the time to learn about the basics. Composition, color and contrast. I focused on these starting out and I was able to then apply it to a lot of my pictures. After that, find what it is you love taking pictures of and do it as often as possible. Instagram is a great platform for this.
Do you plan to visit other CITIES?
My goal next year is to visit other parts of Asia.
