To say that Lucia Griggi has an enviable lifestyle is a bit like saying Jimi Hendrix was ‘good’ at playing the guitar. Lucia’s made her dreams a reality, courtesy of good old hard work and determination. She relocated from Cornwall to California in 2010, but spends most of her year globetrotting – whilst photographing surfing, surf lifestyle and wildlife in some of the most beautiful locations around the world. Her client list includes Roxy, Vans, Red Bull, Land Rover and National Geographic, amongst others. Most impressively however, is the freshness and energy she brings to her photography; she has a genuinely rare talent for emerging the viewer in a picture, as if you were there with her.

In my latest blog post for Autographer, ten professional photographers, including myself, explain how to create amazingly atmospheric imagery.
Here’s my tip:
Capture the whole picture
Try shooting wide to show the atmosphere of a place and the whole picture instead of isolating details.
Shooting from a distance, and also from a high vantage point, gives the viewer a real taste of the city of Havana.
