The Inertia

A portrait of the artist, John Lucarelli.

A portrait of the artist, John Lucarelli.

I am a Southern California based photographer with a passion for capturing unique perspectives of waves, surfing, landscape and travel. Growing up, I was entrenched in the surf, skate and snow lifestyle. But it wasn’t until a surf trip to Bali that I discovered my love for photography, and haven’t been able to put down my camera since. I dedicate my time to expanding my creative boundaries and sharing my experiences through my photography. I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I did capturing them.
