About Gary Lopez

Gary Lopez is a fine art astrophotographer. His photographs are a blend of art and science, images that bridge nature photography and abstract art. The subjects of his images are the clouds of faintly glowing space gas and dust that populate the night sky, sites that are the birthplace of new stars. In his art he strives to capture the beauty and drama of the stories that are captured in this cosmic light.

Gary's work has been recognized in international photography events including First Place in both the 2020 and the 2021 International Photography Awards (Nature/Astrophotography category) and the Silver Award in the 2023 Prix de la Photographie Paris (Nature/Sky category).
