In gitk you can for example do:

gitk --author="Some Name"

Is there a way to show/hide commits by author in the log view?

From from the magit-status buffer press l to open the magit-log prefix transient window. Then in the magit-log transient window press -A to 'limit the commits' to "Some Name". Finally, press l again to get the actual filtered log.
