Liz Lopez lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico she has been photographing the state's people, places, and things for over 20 years. As the owner of my own business and former photo director at our local lifestyle magazine, Liz has created everything from stylized high-fashion images and thoughtful portraits to creative food photos and eye-catching shots for advertisements.
What I love about photography is getting to know my clients, capturing real interactions, illuminating their unique personalities, and showing who they are in the best way. I work together with clients as a team creating photos that capture their emotions around special events such as weddings, birthday parties, a beautiful family portrait or a big gala event.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
As I've said my background is in photojournalism so I particularly like shooting events. I capture lots of candid moments which is what I really like to do. I always try and set up a jumping photo at the beginning of a shoot because it usually makes people laugh and sets the tone for the rest of the shoot. People in general don't always love to have their photo taken so this just seems to relax people and then they are more open to my sometimes crazy suggestions.
