Fer Juaristi Shotkit

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.

    Well this is why I respect guys like Fer who simply said it all – “the crazy guy who is treating their wedding as an experiment.” RESPECT man, you are nailing those ‘experiments’ :)

    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!

    Fer, tu equipo es reducido y pequeño pero tu y tus fotos son grandes, muy grandes, estoy seguro que tu y tus fotos se entraran a formar parte de la historia de la fotografia, grande eres muy grande, ………….sed feilices.

  12. Peter Azor on February 25, 2014 at 2:57 am

    The awesomest kit of them all.
    BTW, the photos are ‘just’ the same :)

  13. Martino - Studio Boda on February 22, 2014 at 11:12 pm

    Great choice, keep it simple. I’d like to try the nikon DF soon. Be happy!

  14. steven on February 21, 2014 at 12:14 pm

    • Guillaume on March 8, 2014 at 8:18 pm

      Langly Bag :)

    It’s rare to have a lightbulb moment online….this was it. Thank you thank you thank you. (I’m so sick of lugging lots of gear).

  16. Eder Acevedo on February 21, 2014 at 8:05 am

    Why the yongnuo triggers were not mentioned, they are great…!!

    • Mark on February 22, 2014 at 7:17 am

      AH, I was trying to work out what those things were :p

    • Alberto Catania on April 14, 2014 at 12:09 am

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

  17. Omar Berr on February 21, 2014 at 5:52 am

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

  18. Bob on February 21, 2014 at 4:43 am

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

    • Mark on February 21, 2014 at 6:26 am

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

  19. Jerzy Modrak on February 20, 2014 at 11:29 pm

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

  20. Matt on February 20, 2014 at 11:04 pm

    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.
