About our guest curator:
Zak Noyle, an outdoor photographer with a truly unique perspective on surf and sea. Based on the Hawaiian island of O‘ahu, Zak spends countless hours in the water, creating dramatic imagery and artful interpretations of the world’s most magnificent ocean environment. He captures an insider’s view, seldom seen, of the beauty and raw power of this offshore world from his perspective besides navigating the waves with just his camera and fins. Zak has taken his work beyond the waves and his clients range from Apple, Audi, Aqualung, Instagram, Chanel, Lululemon, RedBull and various other global clients. He has worked with international athletes from Micheal Phelps to Kelly Slater and everyone in between, if it involves water there is a good chance Zak has photographed it. Surf photography requires a certain level of careful planning, hard work and a bit of sheer luck. For Zak, being in the water with his camera when the next big swell rolls through is a lifestyle; it’s an art, and it’s a passion.
