Who is Blarrel?
Blair Austin is an autodidactic photographer specializing in surfing, oceanscapes, wildlife, and everything that brings the three together. From urban exploration throughout his hometown growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, to living in the subzero conditions at 9,000ft elevation with the isolation of the Rocky Mountains, to the intense winter swells of the Indian Ocean along the beachfronts of South Africa; Blair tells his story with quality and attention to detail.
Eventually Blair moved back to California to photograph the wonders of the coastline. He more recently spends his time documenting the surfing culture at the surf breaks in San Diego while throwing himself into large, gnarly ocean conditions with his fins and camera.
Blair's work has been featured in ZigZag Surfing Magazine, Misfit Gallery La Jolla, and Philz Coffee La Jolla.
