When his students ask him how they too can get up to speed with Photoshop and digital imaging, his advice is clear: the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turner's Falls, Massa-chusetts. "Their one year course is all you need."
Lynch recently shot his friend's five-foot iguana, Iggy, digitally, that is. "I was at his house and realized, 'This thing's a dinosaur, I want to photograph him!' So he brought him over and I set up a white sweep and shot him with the MegaVision S2. I took a very high-res closeup of a PC board with the T2 and layered them together in Photoshop. I adjusted opacity and did layer blends, basically painting the image as an artist would."
Lynch, the Corporation
While marketing himself through postcards, and emails, Lynch
gets a great amount of work through word of mouth. But it's his
hardy work ethic that drives him in the lean times.
"Somebody told me years ago. I think it was Clint: 'You're a
corporation and every day you have to do something for your
corporation.' That made sense to me, because if you want to make a
living at this, you've got to work at it."
Lynch, the corporation, is definitely positioned for success.
Kind of like Lynch himself.
