Zak Noyle isn't your typical extreme sports athlete. Considered one of the best surf photographers in the world, Zak lives his life on the edge. He is 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.
Surf photography requires a certain level of careful planning, hard work and a bit of sheer luck. When asked, Zak says “it’s all about being in the right place at the right time,” a sort of formula for finding the best waves of the day. He follows the wind and tide patterns throughout the week, notes changes in weather patterns or inconsistencies and any tips from fellow surfers are always welcome. For Zak, being in the water with his camera when the next big swell rolls through is a lifestyle; its an art, and its a passion.
