Hi! My name is Mariano Sfiligoy. I’m a father, a husband and a wedding photographer since 2011. I grew up surrounded by film cameras and black and white photos, each telling stories of my family. At home the bath was a darkroom.
Since the moment I started photographing, I was always looking for the best cameras and lenses but then, I realised that smaller gear was an important contribution to my photos.
Today I travel light which allows me to get close to the action and document weddings as I see them in my mind.
For that reason I decided in late 2014 switch from Nikon Df to Fujifilm X-T1. From Reflex to Mirrorless.
I use 2 FujiFilm X-T1‘s, usually one with a FujiFilm 23mm f/1.4 and the other with a FujiFilm 56mm f/1.2 and I also love my Ricoh GR. It’s amazing …
I kept the Nikon DF with a Nikon 35mm f/2 lens, but I don’t use it at weddings. I just have it for the love of reflex cameras.
Here’s a list of the gear I use:
2 x Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera ( firmware 3.0): Normally I use one with 23mm and one with the 56mm. The camera is accurate, small, light and the screen is amazing.
Fujifilm 18mm f/2 XF R Lens : it is a small lens, sharp and very comfortable to shoot with during the party. I really like this focal length.
Fujifilm 23mm f/1.4 R Lens: equivalent to the famous 35mm, this lens is the best I step through my hands. 1000% recommended.
Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens: by its size and focal length my favorite when I go out with a single camera.
Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens: the best !!! I can only say this !!! The best.
Ricoh GR Digital Camera: my little favorite, the ninja cameras . I use it for my photographs of street and during the party … always with me.
Nikon SB-910 and Nikon SB-900 AF Speedlight: Are the flash that I have my camera nikon! Definitely very good teams and not change it for now.
Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V6: until recently used the PocketWizard TT1 and PocketWizard TT5, but I found these and they are very good ones, I can use any camera to any flash. this makes them very interesting.
NEXTO DI ND2901 1TB Portable Memory Card Backup Storage: My cameras have a single slot, so little use GB memory and support during the event, always with me.
Fujifilm instax SHARE Smartphone Printer SP-1, is one of the things I most enjoy about Fujifilm – I can give people small pictures whenever I want.
