SubKingdom Press shoot
April saw the return of a DJ producer I shot about 6 years ago with his new partner in crime Olly. The duo, one based in Devon and the other in Moscow create music together in the digital ether and occasionally get together to add the human touch.
As the band name dictates I scouted the local area for underground spaces that would fit the name and despite an EDL march on the day of the shoot all the ingredients came together to make for some great shots.

My first shoot of 2015 was with the British actor Jim Sturgess. We shot at his house and then hit the streets for some classic walking shots. Jim nailed it!

Fink – Koko, London
Fink returned to London in November 2014 and performed a sell out gig and blessed fans with new tracks from their latest album Hard Believer as well as old tracks from their catalogue. It was an awesome gig in such an awesome venue and has to be one of my highlights of 2014.

Snoop Dogg-New Year!
A very Happy New Year and a prosperous 2015 from Chris Lopez!
Last year was full of ups and downs for me but one of my highlights came at the end of last year when I was asked to photograph a Snoop Dogg album playback at Metropolis Studios, London. Snoop played 4 tracks from his forthcoming album in collaboration with Pharrell Williams. Can’t wait to add it to my collection in 2015! Copyright Chris Lopez/Sony Music 2014
