PAS: How did you get into photography?
Stanley Lopez: A friend of mine (David Pulga) in high school asked me to work side by side with him at a brand new studio (Fantastic Shots) back in Hawaii when just turned 16. Left after 2 ½ years and started my own portfolio. Shot 1 model posted it on MySpace, then referrals started pouring in and that’s when I officially started STANLEY LOPEZ PHOTOGRAPHY!

PAS:
How long have you been a photographer?
Stanley Lopez: 7 years

PAS: How would you describe your style?
Stanley Lopez: My style is a newly chiseled Vegas style meaning it is very focused on location and vibrant colors mixed with my techniques of lighting used where I was originally from Hawaii. This allows me to tell a story that is visually enticing and ageless in every photograph I capture.

What has been your most memorable assignment or model to work with?
Stanley Lopez: When 2 models by the name of Heatherlyn Borja and Jamie Kunisaki had asked me to shoot for their Ultimate Grappling Magazine spreads which was my 1st International Magazine I shot for!

PAS: What would you say to other enthusiast photographers out there who aspire to become a great photographer?
Stanley Lopez: Keep shooting until you get noticed, never quit, and like I always say, “It don’t matter what kind of camera you got, it’s how you use it!”
