Experience Egypt WTM 2018
The team at Momentum UK asked me to cover the Experience Egypt stand at WTM 2018 held at Excel London.
Following the Egyptian Minister for Tourism, Rania Al-Mashat. Mainly reportage photography but I did manage to capture this lovely portrait of this incredibly hard working, dedicated, intelligent, inspiring woman in the Arab world.

I had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous Juliana Mizon in her amazing house for Wyndham Design which is featured in this months Absolutely Home Magazine.
The shoot went incredibly well and Juli with her hair stylist Gio Di Gesu were amazing. At the end of the shoot Juli informs me she’s only 2 days out of hospital after spinal surgery. Incredible. Copyright Chris Lopez 208
DMEXCO 2018 Cologne
My long term associate Romain Kedochim at Soda Visual got me on board to shoot with him at DMEXCO 2018 in the beautiful city of Cologne for non other than Facebook.
The Facebook stand was a buzz of activity with speakers and guests throughout the day. Breakfast meetings, lunches and evening events were created by the brilliant team at Innovision.
Romain and I make such a good team and I enjoyed every minute of it and learnt a lot about Instagram. Pushing the Instagram site from now on.

Swartzcopf at Wireless 2018
One of my clients, P7, commissioned me to shoot a Swartzcopf event at the Wireless festival 2018, Finsbury Park, London. Key ‘Influencers’, hair bloggers and vloggers were invited to have their hair coloured or groomed by the style team. Hard work in the blazing heat but happy with the results.
Actor Grant Masters
After working with the charming actor Grant Masters on the film Transience earlier this year, Grant and I arranged a shoot to update his acting head shot. Grant explained that his last head shot was good but heavily retouched and like a true actor he wanted something with more character.
Grant was a pleasure to work with, totally engaging throughout the shoot and most importantly was chuffed with the results.
Actress – Sophie Stone
Introducing the incredible actress, Sophie Stone. Sophie was the first profoundly deaf actress to be accepted into RADA. Sophie asked if I could shoot a new head shot for her ages ago so I was delighted when dates aligned and she came over. She was a dream to shoot, captivating eyes and such a gorgeous human being. Wishing her every success with her career.
My good mate Alex Reay runs Alforno manufacturing and installing commercial Pizza ovens to restaurants and eateries across the country. I met Alex at Fatto A Mano in Brighton and we were treated by Nicholas the head chef to a range of delicious creations. A most enjoyable shoot.
