Vivian Lynch, Freelance Generalist.
Working with natural, ambient, and venue light is my area of interest in order to capture natural, unpretentious moments. Adaptability is key, and I can work with artificial/studio light as well. Reflecting life as it happens--as we see it in our memories, really--is basically what photography is for me.
Let me shoot you or your band and I'll do my best to make you happy. Whatever you want, you've got it. And I promise: no flash--unless you want it. I'm small but tough so I don't get in the way of your fans but can handle myself in crowds. If you're a small artist just starting out (like me) I'll even dance in the front row if you need it, to any sort of music. Dancing is always complimentary. I'm also available for portraits and promo.
As a science grad who loves the field, I'm also always willing to help out for scientific papers and presentations, free of charge (within reason). Additionally, I love love dogs. I have two. Please let me photograph yours, and pet them too. I am available for on-location photography, real estate, promotional material, portrait, unit stills & film, food, and documentary shoots.
Currently I'm based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada but I travel frequently and have no qualms about going a little extra distance to follow the lens.
My flickr contains a massive collection (and history) of my photography and often will showcase photos not seen here. My instagram is another good source to get a sense of my style. If you'd like to talk, email, text or ring me. I always text back.
