My random inspiration 

Saul Lieter-his color looks like paintings

Eduardo Flores aka Bayo-painter/pencil drawer, love his minimalistic and weird style really inspires me to think more 

Flying Lotus-one of my favorite producers his music is like one large composition each sound, blip, and kick is a brush stroke. His music can put you in a totally different mind frame 

60’s 70’s and 80’s album covers they are sick and creative

Eric Kim- black and white style and fearless approach, love his close-up portraits, his hustle not only for photography but also business has really fueled a fire for me

Dan Perfect – Abstract painter, his colors are very similar to graffiti artist love all his color profiles

Gary Vee- Dudes hustle inspires the shit out of me, the way he works and thinks its awesome

Relentless- One of my fav books, by Michael Jordan’s trainer, helps you get inside the mind of top athletes and how they had to be relentless to reach their goals.

Ed Ruscha, there is a great interview with him on youtube broadcast by Louisiana TV (!) highly recommended. I like the part where he says he is using photography to explore something, not trying to communicate an idea or concept.

Sorry forgot the others..

Paul Strand, William Klein, Eugene Atget, Kertesz among others…really enjoyed Magnum Contact Sheets, the paper back is not expensive and is enlightening..you see the stuff Cartier Bresson junked and how many he shots he took to get the, ahem, decisive moment…

Let me think a bit…

In landscape, ruins and portraits: Caspar David Friedrich, Joseph Mallord William Turner Peter Brueguel (both) some more painters from that eras. I would like to learn also from other painters for example, the one that made the portrait of Davis Friedrich himself and I just forgot his name (sorry!) I love mixing techniques of technical photography with the composition, aesthetics and mood of romantic painting, specially with 120 film

In street photography: Daido Moriyama, Junku Nishimura, the Provoke Magazine Crew, Tatsuo Suzuki, and, of course, Josef Koudelka and Henri Cartier-Bresson (love to use a 50mm or equivalent).
