Photographer, husband, father, bodysurfer, and crafstman, Nick Allen is the West Coast’s answer to Clark Little. His website withinwaves.com is a haven of his fine art ocean photography, taken from within the collapsing waves. “I’m not trying to say a lot with my artwork. I’m just trying to let the images speak for themselves. I don’t have an agenda with the work, I’m just appreciating the ocean.”
Nick grew up in the water in Avila Beach, California and spent almost all of his free bodysurfing and bodyboarding the hollow closeouts that are characteristic of the beach. “I’d duckdive through the wave on my bodyboard, and end up with these magical images of waves going over my head at sunset. I would end up with those images stuck in my head for a while, but they would always fade. I think that’s a big part of what drove me to want to take pictures in the water in the first place…to capture those images for longer than just a fleeting moment.”
