Photolyfe: Joao Bracourt

Welcome to PhotoLyfe, in which Stab’s favourite photographers answer questions about themselves with their own images. It’s that old picture-tells-a-thousand-words chestnut but with more colour and pop. It’s a way to cut out all the bullshit. It’s like jacking into the main vein of those who supply us with exquisite surf imagery every day. Give thanks by studying each image with a more careful eye than ever!

And here’s Joao Bracourt! A groupie of the best kind! Joao’s located near Sagres, Portugal, which you’ll know is the southwestern tip of Europe. He was doing just fine there, catching seafood, until and Americano sold him some waterhousing. He’s sold his soul to Nike and Mercedes but also to Stab, and he was totally a finalist in the Red Bull Illume competition. We adore his eye. You will too…
