Starting young

Noyle started his photography career at the young age of 14, but not without some bumps. "I was raised in a household of photography; my dad is a famous commercial photographer in Hawaii," says Noyle. "I was never drawn to photography though at an early age, and actually failed Photo 101 in high school. I found my love for photography through the ocean several years later. My dad was still right here next to me waiting to assist and help me in any way that he could; he has been my best friend and mentor through it all."
