Anthony Ghiglia Gets Another Cover and Some Editorial Coverage

I got a new cover this month for La Jolla About Town Magazine. I shot the image while playing a round of golf at Torrey Pines Golf Course here in my hometown of La Jolla. LJAB mag was also kind enough to do a feature on my photography and prints gallery.

Surfer Magazine's "BIG ISSUE" was released this month and a few of my images were included in it. This first one is of a surfer/photographer/explorer, Drew Cowan, I met while on photo trip to El Salvador last year. Drew had stopped at this small surf town while making his trek south from Texas. I set up a few remote flashes that I carry with me on editorial trips and captured a several images of Drew in his element. Last I heard from Drew he had sold the truck after it finally gave out on him and he was living in Costa Rica. Doesn't sound like a bad gig!

Surf Trip to Mexico with Friends

It's been a while since I've gone on an actual surf trip with boards. A few weeks ago I went down to Mainland Mexico with a few friends to surf. Of course I brought my camera along. Wouldn't you know we arrived the exact same time as one of the best swells of the spring. I managed to shoot a few photos and still get some really fun waves for myself. Here are a few of my friend Ryan Bracker mixed in with a couple lineup shots of the waves. There will no doubt be a few images added to from this trip. Stay tuned!

Ghiglia Gets Two New Covers this Month

My work is featured on the cover of About Town La Jolla and Solana Beach this month. The La Jolla issue image was shot in the shore break of a beach by my house in La Jolla. The Solana Beach image was shot during the wildfires a few years ago which blew the craziest orange smoke through the San Diego County coastline for 5 days.
