CHRISTOPHER M. LYNCH
B. 1975 D. Not Yet
Christopher M. Lynch, AKA MISTER LYNCH, was born in Maryland, grew up in Maine, and is now based in NEW YORK CITY where he has been creating commercial campaigns, both print and live action, for the past 20 years. Lynch started his career by turning the high schools janitors closet into a darkroom. His drive and passion for the art lead him to be front and center with many of the top musical acts touring the United States. It was backstage, after a private portrait session with Henry Rollins, that Lynch realized "this is what I want to do for the rest of my life".
While still in university, the creative recruiter at one of the worlds largest advertising agencies, Young & Rubicam, spotted his talent, and fast tracked him to open a photo studio for their Worldwide Headquarters in New York. As a 21 year old, Lynch was now working alongside with some of the worlds top creative minds in advertising.
Starting as a commercial portrait photographer, Lynch evolved his vision into highly produced conceptual productions, and now directs live-action content with various brands and creative teams nationally and internationally. MISTER LYNCH has proven his ability to develop and direct both the real and the surreal with a variety of different subjects and creative approaches tailored to each production.
With over 20 years outside AND inside the agency walls, MISTER LYNCH team can handle all aspects of a production - concept development, strategy, casting, location or set creation, wardrobe/costume, unique prop builds, special talent coordination, content creation, still image libraries, Pre and Post Production ....and likely more, just ask!
