As seen through his work, Ernie Black has always had a love for the ocean and the animals that swim within. Originally from Naples, FL, he has found his way out to the island of Maui in Hawaii. The clear waters, big surf, and abundance of colorful marine life, have all contributed to a fascination that cannot keep him away from the ocean.
Photography has always been a passion of Ernie’s, but upon his arrival to Maui in 2011, it has become more of an obsession. Self-taught, Ernie prides himself on using only natural light. This, mixed with his free diving abilities, allows for a peaceful environment for his subject matter.
With salt water as the main focus in Ernie’s photography, he invites you to bring some of this salt home and sprinkle it’s flavor around your favorite rooms!
