Get Featured: Steven Lopez
Steven sent me this project absolutely ages ago, and I have finally managed to get it up. And as you can see, it was worth the wait. Check it out.
Hi JCH, I love reading the “what’s in your bag” section of your website, looking for inspiration through the owners’ social media links and sites. Another reason I love you checking your site is because do your best to “keep film alive”.
I am Steven Lopez and I have been living in London for over 2 years now and I kind of love and hate it. But that’s another story.
Today I am sharing a set of portrait photographs , part of an ongoing project which consists of photographing people that surround me, such as friends, coworkers or even neighbours. I love film photography and I love the fact that it is tangible, that the negatives can be kept as a treasure and that film makes me connect with my subjects. I am also very thankful to photography as it helped me overcome loneliness many years ago when I bought my first camera( I know that sounds a little bit cheesy lol).
Another reason for working on this project is that I am currently building a portfolio of Portraits which I will use to promote myself as a Film Portrait Photographer. Less talking now…
I use 2 fantastic and inspiring(to me) cameras, which as you have noticed are the Nikon FM2n with a 50mm and a Leica M6 with a 35mm.
AgfaVista200, Leica M6 and Voigtlander 35 f/2.5.
The latter is my everyday camera, I love it and I will always be thankful to the person who gifted it to me.
I don’t really have a lot to say about myself except that I would like to meet, work or hangout with anybody living in London, and of course shoot if possible.

Thanks for sharing your work with us, Steven. It was definitely worth the wait.
