f-stop 15th Anniversay StoryWhat is your first memory of f-stop or f-stop bags?
About 10 years ago, during an ascent to Cerro Aconcagua, I had my first contact with an f-stop backpack. If I remember correctly, it was a Loka, and I loved its design. I found it excellent for the type of photography I do.
What benefits do you get from f-stop bags you can't find in other bags?
The possibility of varying the set up between the backpack and the ICU´s is something that I value a lot, and the fact that I can carry my photographic and mountain equipment in the same backpack at the same time is very important. Its construction quality and design allows me to trust any of the models for the most demanding projects.
What is your favorite f-stop bag?
Difficult to answer ... but I think Tilopa is an excellent choice
Tell us something you discovered about your f-stop bag(s) you didn't know until you got the bag into use or in the field?
One of the things that surprised me the most, and already I knew about the great quality, was the ability to keep my equipment dry in the middle of a big rain.
Which bag and ICU combo do you use most frequently, and what do you carry in it? (you can send a photo of your loaded/packed ICU)
Sukha and large ICU
What is your favorite project you've worked on in the last few months, and why?
The pandemic meant that my projects were not many lately, and one of the ones that I liked the most was photographing Flamingos in Ansenuza, Cordoba. Argentina.
For Gustavo, technology has given photographers new tools, but hasn’t changed the heart of the profession. “The technological breakthroughs have taken photography above and beyond what we imaged ten years ago. But I think that the core and unchangeable part of this profession remains the same. Fortunately the photographer’s unique point of view and the challenge to capture the right moment remain still unchanged.”
