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.
