Lucia Ganieva Photography


Lucia Ganieva, born in Russia, but living in the Netherlands since 1993.
May 31st, 2007 graduated with an honours degree (cum laude) at the Foto Academie Amsterdam.
My work has been exhibited all over the world and has been awarded with many international prizes and awards, both in art and in commercial competitions. Apart from working on my personal projects I am interested in and available for commercial commissioned work.
For my work I use a mid-format camera, also with a digital back, and I am experienced in working with Photoshop and Phase One. I am known for having a good feeling for the use of light. My background in the fashion industry helps me to contribute to the creative process in commercial projects.
