I am currently designing a new website. Much as I like this existing one, you really need a degree in computer science just to make what should be a simple change. The new site is: http://www.micklynchcreative.com This site will continue for the moment.

I trained as a graphic designer, which included printmaking and lots of old-school photography. I am always happy to consider any  type of design or film proposal. On this website you can view samples of my work, plus there’s a shop where you can buy some of the things I create.

‘A stunning tour-de-force…..with a video projection that was as organic and original as the score.’  - Chicago Classical Review.


‘The Being Dufay films were very beautiful.’ - Jo Nockels, Opera North Projects Manager.


‘The audience feedback was extremely positive with many fantastic comments about Michael Lynch’s film.’  - Christopher O’Gorman, tenor.

I am happy to manipulate any image I create in order to achieve the desired effect I am looking for. I am also happy to leave well alone. The shots of Peyee Chen are straight from the camera with no editing, re-touching, nothing. The shots of Katharina have clearly been subjected to some fairly hardcore digital subversion.
