Fer Juaristi

I picked up my first camera in high school. I asked my teacher if I could take it home for the weekend. He said yes. I took some (bad) pictures.

But that was also some of my best work. That was the work that helped me realize I wanted to live out of a camera for the rest of my life.

I wanted to make my camera a passport to other people’s lives. And needed my camera to mean total trust.

When I am living out of my camera, I need my clients to understand the kind of photographer they are getting. The husband, the father, the crazy guy who is treating their wedding as an experiment.

My kit:

Nikon Df with Sigma 35mm f/1.4
Nikon Df with Sigma 85mm f/1.4
Leica M6
An LED light & 2 flashes.

    This has got to be the coolest kit I have ever seen. I feel burdened by the excess I am familiar with taking to each wedding/portrait/commercial and having not used half of it for the shoot.

    I listed to Fer’s podcast with Andrew Hellmich this week and he is a dude! This guy gets it so much and sees life from every practical angle. Total respect.

    Less to carry=less tired=more power to shoot awesome wedding photos!

    Is that not a sigma 35 on the left? I’m hoping I’m geek enough to have got this right?

      Yes it is Bob, great spot! Fer just corrected me too – apparently he uses the Sigma lenses.

    Menos es mas. Grandioso Fer :) Te esperamos en Perú :)
    Por cierto ¿No que usabas Sigma? ¿Qué paso, regresaste a Nikon?

      Hello Eder, Sorry, which Youngnuo are those for Nikon? YN-602?? Are those for Manual work only?
      Thank you so much. Alberto

    I love this! Fer’s perspective is always so refreshing. It’s great to see him being so successful all while doing his own thing!

  • […] Solo puedo decir que aluciné con una de las últimas webs descubiertas a través de un compañero. ShotKit es una web donde fotógrafos de varias especialidades muestran el interior de su mochila y explican brevemente las razones por las que utilizan ese equipo. Una fuente de información para curiosos como yo, impagable. Dentro de sus categorías se encuentra la de fotógrafos de boda, un lujazo, donde podemos ver con que equipo trabajan fotógrafos de la talla de Max Wanger o Fer Juaristi. […]

  • Me encanta el kit de Fer! es increíble lo que puede hacer con tan poco!
    saludos desde Córdoba ;)

    A very stylish and light set up!
    And, what more do you actually need – it’s got me thinking : )
