“I love surf photography because there are so many different angles and ways to get creative. No two waves are the same and it’s up to you to portray your vision and the shot you have in mind.

I’m currently using a Canon 5D Mark IV with an Aquatech housing.

Zak Noyle is my biggest inspiration for surf photography. However, I also enjoy the works of Ben Thouard, Warren Keelan, and Roy Collins. They inspire me to work hard and keep trying new things!”

“Nolan is a full-time student. A majority of these upcoming photographers are studying, which is so rad. They are just so passionate. They are out there when it’s big or small, creating things. Nolan doesn’t go the traditional route of just shooting surfing. He’s really found his own in that way of what drives him. You don’t have to swim out to 10-foot Pipe to be a water photographer. He does it, but he’s also paved his own path. He’s very in-tune to color and editing.” – Zak Noyle
