Carel Blazer (Amsterdam, June 16, 1911 - Nijmegen, January 16, 1980) was a photographer and Dutch resistance fighter during World War II.

Blazer worked and lived in Amsterdam. He was a socially and politically committed person and already in his youth participated in initiatives against the rising fascism. In 1933 Blazer became a member of the Association of Workers-Photographers at the invitation of the photographer C. Kerkhof. In 1936, together with Cas Oorthuys and Nico de Haas, he took a seat on the board of the photo and film group of the Association of Artists for the Defense of Cultural Rights (BKVK). Blazer participated in the organization of the exhibition De Olympiade Onder Dictatuur (DOOD), and in 1937 the international exhibition photo '37 in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. In the same year, Blazer left for Spain for three months, where he covered the civil war on the Republican side.

During the war he joined the photographers' resistance group "De Ondergedoken Camera". He took many pictures of the war misery in Amsterdam. He belonged to the movement of social photography and made documentary photo series that depicted social developments and abuses in a committed way.

Blazer was a teacher of Ad Windig, Dolf Kruger and Paul Huf and co-founder of the photographers association GKf. In the fifties and sixties he mainly focused on advertising and industrial photography, but he also traveled at home and abroad and photographed people during their everyday activities. A well-known and sought-after book in which he provided all the photos is 50 years of Bruynzeel 1897-1947.

His photo archive is managed by the Maria Austria Institute in Amsterdam.
