“I am always super grateful just to be in the ocean and see the things I get to see, feel the power and the love of the water, and enjoy the company of friends. It’s not always about that golden shot or good catch for me.

I shoot with the Sony A7R III and A6500. I use Salty Surf housings from Australia for my water housings. I like my rigs to be as small and compact as possible.

I have always looked up to Chris Burkard, Jeremiah Klein, and the local legends like Zak Noyle, John Hook, and Keoki Saguibo. Grateful for them and all that they teach me.”

“Nick is a great guy. He’s eager to learn, asking me where I am going to shoot and how he can help. He’s gone out of his way to help me with my projects and anything I’m doing, like my workshops. He’s willing to drive across the island to help me with whatever I’m up to, because he wants to be there to learn. His drone images are beautiful, as well as his water shots.” – Zak Noyle
