Thanks for the question(s). My main inspirations are beauty and what is possible to capture with a camera.
As for inspirations I’ll credit the following photographers: Nick Knight, Avedon, Herb Ritts, Gilles Bensimon, Demarchelier, Peter Lindburgh, Helmut Newton, Karl Lagerfeld (believe it or not), (not photographers but) a guy named Picasso and his friend Matisse, Sante D’ Orazio, Ellen Von Unwerth, Michel Compte. There are a couple of younger photographers that have great style as well; Randall Slavin and Carlos Nunez.
I hope to have shed a little light on this for you.
