On Fashion: Fashion Photography is not just about how a particular dress, piece of lingerie, or other clothing will look on a fashion model. It's also about a lifestyle. The clothes we wear define what we are, and who we are. They are an extension of ourselves. So it's always our goal to express those thoughts and ideas as accurately as possible.

On photography: "The photographer’s most important and likewise most difficult task is not learning to manage his camera, or to develop, or to print. It is learning to see photographically – that is, learning to see his subject matter in terms of the capacities of his tools and processes, so that he can instantaneously translate the elements and values in a scene before him into the photograph he wants to make". Edward Weston.

On personal achievement: “Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances". Orison Swett Marden

"It was a true pleasure to work with Noel. He's easy going, yet keeps it professional. He was willing to help with poses if I felt stuck and comfortable enough to ask for help. I can't wait to work with Noel and his team again! I know I will get great photos after a shoot with them".
