Stan Moniz musician/ocean photographer was born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Growing up on the west coast of Oahu and then later moving to the north shore at a young age, Stan quickly felt an attachment to the ocean and became at home in the big surf of Hawaii. From there on out the ocean was his home. He focused on the sport of bodyboarding and later turned professional at the age of 18. Music and photography were also a big passion in his life. But as faith would have it he was given a guitar as a Christmas present before his first camera. A few years later music became a dream come true with his band National Product also hailing from Oahu, Hawaii. He shifted gears and moved with the group to southern California in 2000 where he still resides today to where they lived out a very successful career as a professional touring band. The band later in 2010 slowed down enough for Stan to reacquaint himself with his love of the ocean. This time equipped with a camera, Stan now travels up and down Hawaii and the gold coast of California capturing those timeless moments to share with all.
