Most of my influencies are from people outside photography, I think this is great because it gives you less chance of copying their style and focus more on understanding their vision.
Music – Frank Zappa
Cinema – Cohen brothers
Painter – Robert Rauschenberg
Philosopher – Nietzsche
Cientist – Nassim Taleb
Photographer – Roger Ballen
Surfer – Tom Curren
I don´t think I have had a big inspiration from surf photogs, maybe the Jeff Flindt water shots… or Chris Burkard lineups, but I have hollow waves, radical surfers and beautiful scenery to shoot anyway so I think my style came naturally.
Recently I have been really inspired by Nassim Taleb´s Antifragile theory, check his lectures on youtube, amazing.
Last but not least I have been under the influence of Super Bock for some decades now.
