Xavier Goins

Originally from upstate New York, but now working as a photographer out of my home studio in San Francisco, I spend my free time pursuing my personal long term documentary projects.

I use photography as a tool for exploring the relationships I develop with the people and places that I take interest in.

Working as a documentary and architecture photographer, the most important feature that I look for in a camera system is mobility. Fujifilm’s X Series cameras offer me just that.

I have been shooting with Fuji for about three years now. I currently shoot with the Fujifilm X-T3 and have invested in a complete set of high-quality primes: the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4, 23mm f/1.4, and the 35mm f/1.4.

With this set up I am able to choose my focal length based on working space and the story I am trying to convey.

In addition, the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Photo, and the Sekonic L-308X Flashmate Light Meter have been indispensable tools saving me hours of struggling with color and exposure during post-production.
