About Dave and Janet Lynch

Hello we are Dave and Janet Lynch from Goochland VA.

Dave is  a lifetime Virginia resident. He grew up in Danville and Pittsylvania County VA  and moved to The Richmond VA area in 1976 as an insurance company district sales manager. In 1979 while visiting home in Danville a friend introduced Dave to his soul mate Janet Fitzgerald from Pelham NC and they were married in 1980. They have a son, Mark who lives at home. 


Dave has always had a passion for Photography. First with a Christmas gift from his  parents ….an old Kodak Brownie and then he and Janet bought their first 35mm a used automatic Konica on their Honeymoon after a borrowed camera failed on them. Janet has always been an Artist. She draws , sketches, paints, does calligraphy and her real passion for nearly 30 years has been Scherenschnitte Paper Cutting Art. About the year 2000 Janet decided to frame some of Dave's   photography and include it in her Art Show. People gave her money for it……….. The rest as they say is history. From that point on Dave's camera has been his constant companion. Dave began to go with Janet to her Art Shows and professional photographers would come by their booth and ask him questions about his technique. They would introduce themselves and tell Dave they were also a P R O F E S S I O N A L Photographer. Well after about ten professional photographers told Dave he was also a professional He decided to acknowledge the gift he was given by God the Creator to capture His beautiful world and its people. 

Today Dave is still an insurance agent by day as they say but the work he loves is Photography.  Dave's Photography has won some awards.  He has now moved into Portraits and really enjoys capturing the joy of a High School Senior .

"I would love to be your Photographer . If you have a landscape that you would like to turn into art or if you have an event coming up or need a family portrait I would love to capture the joy and provide the memories for you." 

"Photography for me is NOT about the camera, the lens, the tripod, the filter, or the computer. My Photography is about “MY FATHERS WORLD.” The Beauty Of God’s Creation and the gift he gave me to capture it. Whether it be a majestic mountain, an awe inspiring sunrise or sunset, the refreshing ocean, the calmness of a trickling stream, the bold colors of fall, the soft quietness of a snowfall or one of God’s creatures including man . It is HE who has made all. We must enjoy it every day and give HIM the praise and glory for it."
