    Photography major Peter Lopez submitted a black and white portrait of a friend to the prestigious trade pub-lication rangefinder Magazine. His image won an award and was published in the november issue of the magazine. In addition, Peter received an all-ex-penses-paid trip to Las vegas to attend a large con-vention featuring the latest information on profession-al photography.

    Peter was fortunate to get the last place in a crowded class taught by Doug Kopinski; the now-retired head of the photography department. He credits his instruc-tors with not only teaching the basic techniquesbut also pushing him to try new things. His painting and drawing classes also helped him understand how to design an image.

    My favorite teacher, Mei Valenzuela, is al-ways pushing me to use the camera to see things in my own unique way. I hope to transfer to Art Center or work as an assistant to a profes-sional photographer when I graduate. When I get enough experience, I want to open my own studio and specialize in unique portraits.
