From Tahiti to Japan to San Fransisco and more, the perfect waves were not easy to find. After a year of traveling the world, and getting pounded by wave after wave, I finally got all of my shots together and hand chose these specific images as my favorites.

Beach Clean Up Event in San Diego

Ocean Beach Clean-Up

Getting a chance to participate in a beach cleanup anywhere in the world is always great. My work revolves around the ocean. Having a clean place to play and work and have fun is important.

Last weekend I partnered with Davidoff Cool Water to clean up Ocean Beach in San Diego. The event was hosted by Davidoff Cool Water in partnership with National Geographic and Surfrider San Diego. Scott Eastwood, the face of the brand and a huge supporter of ocean conservation, was also there to kick it off and lend his support. They brought the community together to ensure their local beach was in top shape. Great to see. Did you know: Every bottle of Davidoff Cool Water sold helps to protect over 100,000 square feet of ocean?

Zak Noyle featured in Apple’s “Shot on iPhone 6” Ad Campaign

It’s amazing what my iPhone 6 can do!

My dad always told me “the best camera you can have is the camera you have with you!” and Apple has done an amazing job with creating a camera that’s always there for you when you need it.

Over the past several months, you might have seen "Shot on an iPhone 6" outdoor advertising campaign. I'm honored to be one of 162 people from around the globe who were selected to participate in the campaign. I was one of the very few to have two photos selected for the outdoor advertising campaign. One from Makapuu and the second from Queens.

Both photos that are featured on billboards around the world. With 10,000+ Installations, 25 Countries, 73 Cities , the shot on Iphone 6 campaign is the largest mobile photography gallery in history!

I was also one of a handful of people selected for the video campaign as well. My clip (Below) was shot at Waimea Bay, Hawaii and puts me underneath an impending wave in slow motion with “The Victor” by Dick Dale as the soundtrack.

I’m absolutely thrilled and humbled to have been part of this campaign.
