History

  

            A long-time resident of Monmouth County, NJ, I have always taken an interest in photography, but I started quite modestly, keeping a photo journal of my travel, both here and abroad.  Family and friends appreciated my photos and encouraged me to pursue photography more seriously.  In retirement, I have found the time to follow this advice and make photography my avocation. 

            In the past ten or so years I have made acquaintances with like-minded photo artists and gained membership to a number of local organizations:  The Guild of Creative Art, Shrewsbury, NJ; The Raritan Photographic Society, East Brunswick, NJ; and the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, Red Bank, NJ.  My work has appeared in these venues as well as:  The Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton Township, NJ;  Monmouth County Fair, East Freehold, NJ;  Princeton Alliance Church Plainsboro, NJ; Central Jersey Blood Center, Shrewsbury, NJ;  Monmouth Festival of the Arts, Tinton Falls, NJ; Monmouth County Arts Council at the Monmouth Museum on the campus of Brookdale Community College; Monmouth County Clerks Office & Monmouth County Agricultural Center, East Freehold, NJ;  and the Monmouth County Camera Club, Colts Neck, NJ. 

            I started out photographing living nature, seascapes, and landscapes.  More recently, I have taken up digital photography and used Photo Shop, the computer program, to polish my work.  My photographic subjects have varied over this same time, and my images now trend more towards architectural and historical artifacts, often at a macro scale.  

            As a result of my membership in the organizations listed above, and the help of experienced individuals who have given me encouragement, I have been developing my artistic expression which now includes Watercolors.  I am pleased to say that my efforts have been increasingly fruitful, and I have met with success in recent art and photo competitions.  Even so, an artist will see positive qualities in my work that I do not see, demonstrating that I have yet to reach a full understanding of my artistic vision. 

            I invite you to look at and enjoy my work.  You may find elements in it that even I have not yet been able to conceptualize, but I hope they will be a pleasure to you all the same.

Thank you.  Peter Lopez

Photo Art

Since digital technology presents unparalleled opportunities for photo enhancement, I can offer photos to you that will very affordably complement the color decor of your office or home.  If you see a photo that you like, but would prefer a color or background alteration, please contact me.  Coupled with an artful choice of matting and framing, I can assist you to acquire a photo that will add grace & charm to your surroundings. 

Only a portion of my inventory of photos is posted on the web site--but those photos are among my favorites.  I plan to up-date frequently, to offer new photos as they are shot, and to diversify the portfolio on a regular basis with photos from locations not yet shown in the Gallery selections.  So, please come back to this site frequently.

My photo art-works are suitable for framing & use as wall decorations, and I also provide the services of photo retouching, web site design services, logo design, brochures, business card and post card design.
