Noah was born in Gold Beach, Oregon but grew up throughout California. As a California kid, he could always be found in and around water. Soon after deciding there wasn’t a large salary to be had as a professional water polo player, he discovered photography.
In 1996 he graduated with a BFA in photography from San Francisco State University. Searching to learn more he moved to Los Angeles. There, he attended California institute of the Arts and received his M.F.A. in photography in 2000.
His work has taken around the globe photographing various dynamic projects with clients including: West Elm, Steelcase, Herman Miller, Nike, HBA, Vanity Fair, Dwell, Monocle, Architectural Digest, and Apple.
