Stan Moniz – Sea Change Ambassador
Published photographer Stan Moniz was raised in Waialua located on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Growing up close to the water’s edge he quickly felt an attachment to the ocean and became at home in the big surf on the island. He was a water baby at birth and a surfer and body boarder from an early age. Music and photography are two of Stan’s passions. His band National Product generated a strong following in the islands as result he moved with the group to Southern California in 2000 where they began professionally touring. After 10 years exploring music Stan reacquainted himself with his love for adventure and capturing the beauty of the world we live in.
