How to Find Inspiration
Fer Juaristi is an award winning wedding photographer from Mexico. His work inspires thousands, and he shares how to find inspiration on the Bearded Tog.
- Movies can be incredible when discovering how to find inspiration, and they happen to be Fer’s favorite place to draw from.
- Weddings are love and that’s what you have to work to capture – you don’t want to be a monkey just photographing everything as it is! You want to get past the script and tell a story. Make it more interesting, childish, obscure, etc. There are many ways to be creative, find inspiration, and tell a story.
- You have to be understanding of your own limitations. Sometimes keeping it simple is important.
- No matter how good we are, if we don’t find people who relate to our passion, it’s just going to be a basic 9-5.
- Photography is a luxury. If you don’t connect with your couple, you’re not going to last long in this industry.
- You don’t have to put a label on your work too soon. Sometimes you just need to honor your inspiration and give yourself the freedom to create.
- Consider following hashtags and exploring photography outside of consuming wedding photos.
- There’s more ways to show interest than asking questions. Fer doesn’t spend a ton of time getting to know every detail about his couples, but he feels he doesn’t need to in order to capture their story on the wedding day.
