    Excerpt from her site:



    Rebecca Bundschuh’s career in photography was born of her desire to capture the fleeting and precious moments of her children, Anela, 9, and Kayden, 7, as they grew from babies into little people. Fast forward six years and Bundschuh’s talent has earned the adoration and accolades of the wedding and lifestyle photography industry.



    Rebecca developed her eye and honed her craft through travel and by documenting the beauty of the day-to-day minutiae of life with two children. She found perspective and beauty in the fray and discovered that sometimes the most cherished memories are captured in their most natural form when they are on the fringe of a moment in time.



    In 2011, one of her photos was chosen from the submitted work of over 60,000 photographers and she was awarded the honour of being named Nikon’s International Emerging Artist of the Year- widely considered photography’s top prize. Her body of work belying the fact that she is largely self taught, Rebecca is constantly building on the natural talent she possesses and never turns down an opportunity to learn and grow as an artist. Remembering the challenges of getting started in a competitive industry with fiercely guarded tricks of the trade, she offers periodic ‘Intro To Photography’ workshops in an attempt to foster the enthusiasm of those that don’t yet possess the knowledge, but share her passion. Her work has been featured in Vera Wang, Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, and Ruffled, among others. Never one to stop exploring, Rebecca is inspired by culture and travel and has shot weddings as far as Norway, Hawaii, Bermuda, Arizona, Mexico, The Dominican Republic, and New York.



    Rebecca approaches photography much as she approaches life in her mountain-town home of Squamish, BC. Her work is authentic and at ease. It is her composition and eye for capturing images with unobtrusive intimacy that have become her trademarks. She considers weddings to be a natural storyboard and as such is inspired to watch them unfold without interruption, documenting and preserving the emotion, joy, and energy of the day.



     



    “Photography is my feeling, it inspires and motivates me; it is my purpose and it has changed the way I see the world. I get such joy in being allowed the opportunity to share in so many special days. The creativity and love that surrounds us is inspiring.”

    Fuego Magic with Fjh Photography FMP.30

    Francisco is an amazingly talented photographer who has a passion for photography his subject in some of the most challenging light while using off camera flash to create a natural and beautiful balance of light.



    We talked all about his story of how he started, gear he uses, what his go to settings are and much more.



    From His Site:

    My Story

         Like most photographers, I started taking photos in 2008 during high school for my yearbook class my junior year. We were able to check out the cameras for the weekend and I took advantage of that way too many times. The camera was pretty good at the time (Canon EOS Ditial Rebel XT) and I took photos of everything from spiders to lamps and even the floor. The photographer in me was growing.



    Eventually, I bought a Nikon D60 DSLR. My main focus back then was documenting the life of my family so I didn't quite understand my settings at the time but developed a good eye for taking photos with good composition and great emotion. The following year was when I started school full time at The University of Texas - Pan American (UTPA) so my photography took a back seat for a while. It was until 2011 when I needed a camera that could record video for some classes that I picked up photography again and started pursuing it. I haven't stopped since.



    Photography to me is more than taking photos. It has literally made me see things differently, and through photography I've developed relationships with people I've never dreamed I'd communicate with. I have friends all over the world through this career! I used to be a very shy guy and now have no problems talking to complete strangers. I've become outgoing and love talking to people.

    Fuego Magic with Vinny with The Pain Academy FMP.29

    This is a major gear shift from the usual podcast that I share but I thought it was a necessary one as many people in our industry will benefit from this. I have always been really interesting in prolonging the optimized performance of my body to be able to do what I love for as long as I can in this life. This is the reason I reached out to Vinny with Pain Academy. He is a posture therapist and helps you get your body back into place where it is fully aligned and performing the way it was intended to. I know this is relevant to us since we spend long hours in awkward positions while shooting and sitting at the computer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!



    Vinny was kind enough to put together a basic program with a routing to get ready for work and decompress afterwards, I volunteered as the subject to show you really how much this career can affect our bodies!



     



    Excerpt from his site:



    Your posture tells a story…



    This story is really a compilation of everything you and your body have been through over the years.



    Past injuries, jobs, sports, how you think, what you’ve been taught, your environment, lifestyle, and your emotions, all shape the way you move and feel today.



    Your history – past and present, can knock you out of alignment, not only creating pain, but adding excessive wear and tear on your body, mind, and emotions, on a daily basis.



    Our online program gives you the skillset to give your body what it truly needs so you can heal on a deep level and sustain your results long term.



    Let us help you rewrite your story.

    Fuego Magic with Fer Juaristi FMP.28

    Fuego Magic with Fer Juaristi FMP.28

    Fer Juaristi is an incredibly talented photographer who seems to have limitless access to some supernatural flow of never-ending mind bending creativity. His work is beautiful and raw, full of real moments and incredible perspective. He was such a cool guy to chat with, it felt as if we were best friends catching up. I believe it is because of his incredibly lovable personality and talent that he is where he is at today in the wedding industry.



    Because I loved this I had to share an excerpt from his site:



    When you find someone that has more faith in you than yourself, you know that you are on the right track.



    That’s my story. I owe everything to my wife. 13 years have passed, & we have 3 lovely kids, living out our passions & enjoying each day as much as possible.





    OUR JOURNEY Is Called Life.



    Photography is my PASSION,I left behind a whole lot to pursue this dream and thank God it has started to prosper. In each wedding, my vision is to create something personal & unique for you, letting things happen by themselves & capturing the “in-betweens” of life. I will be a friend for you and enjoy your big day through my vision.

    BUT, ABOVE ALL, EACH IMAGE SHOULD TRANSPORT YOU TO THAT MOMENT 5, 15 OR 30 YEARS LATER ON DOWN THE ROAD.

    Fuego Magic with Bailey Rebecca Roberts FMP.27

    Brief into



    Ok, this episode was awesome because I had a great chat with Bailey Rebecca Roberts who is a photographer that splits her time between Hawaii, Los Angeles & New York.



    She was born and raised in Maui, went to school for photography in New York and has also been a photo addict from the very begging. Her work is deep and her passion shines through in it.



    I really like her approach and hunger towards growth within the industry and her own as an artist. It was so refreshing to chat with her and I took away a lot of great insight to what it is like to be a photographer in the commercial side of things. Bailey is incredibly talented and has done work with some huge brands. If you want to see some of the brands she has worked with you can check out her website, there is an entire list of them.



    More time to chat with her would have been nice since I have lots more to ask her about, hence, this will not be the last episode that she is on.



    Your opinion really matters to me so let me know what you think about this episode. If there is anything else you would like to hear about on the Fuego Magic podcast. Feel free to email me directly at fuegomagicpodcast@gmail.com



    This was the second third episode i have ever recorded remotely so bare with me if the quality isn't what you are used to.

    Eden is AMAZING, I had been trying to get her on the podcast for a while now and am so happy I did. Her work is so very unique and full of her own personality. We got to chat about her journey through photography, what inspires her, how to define your style, gear, studio shooting and much more!!!



     



    From Eden's Website:



    Hello and welcome! I'm Eden, a destination wedding photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah. I specialize in intimately telling the story of your love through editorial wedding photography.



    I believe your photos should stand the test of time, yet capture you in this moment. I believe in images that reflect you, ones that you adore, and lots of them.



    I've had a camera glued to my hand since I was an elementary attender, and truly love photographing more every day. If you asked 15 year old Eden what she wanted to be when she grew up, she'd tell you a photographer. I feel luckier each day that I am honored with my dream job. I live for bold colors, bright light, and capturing your incredible moments of life and love.



    Eden Strader Photography is where romance meets modern editorial. My couples value artistic representation of their love, and unique sessions + details that speak to their relationship. Working together, we’ll document your love in a way never seen before.

You gotta listen!

As a photographer I spent many hours on the road driving to consultations, engagement shoot’s and weddings. There is no greater feeling than finding a podcast that is not only inspiring but also very informative with great information on how to better my business and how to grow as a photographer. Matías is the guy to listen to! His such a real, genuine guy and I’ve really enjoyed listening to him and learning from all his guest!

Community over competition

I am loving the Fuego Magic Podcast!! It’s such a good listen, especially when I’m sitting for hours at my computer editing. I think it’s a fantastic resource for photographers of all different levels as there are so many different styles and techniques shared by the guests. From shooting style to settings and gear, to business and marketing and a whole load in between. It’s fun to hear about everyone’s personal journey and growth too. Thank you Matias 😊
