Well, when you see a photograph taken by Jack Lynch of La Tavola, or any of our events, they certainly do speak a thousand words comprised of various adjectives, verbs, and nouns. There is no one way to describe our events; you can just see it in the photographs Jack Lynch takes.

Jack Lynch began to take pictures for us last year and the event that really stuck out to him is La Tavola, which is our Italian Feast Under the Stars—the next best thing to being in Italy! Jack Lynch says he loves the atmosphere, food, and live entertainment that makes La Tavola such a wonderful evening. The arrangement of the tables gave him the ability to get a variety of different shots and play with the depth of the field. That’s very important when telling a story via photographs—you need variety to make that story interesting to draw an audience.

The 1st Annual Mashpee Chamber Lobster Fest (formerly the Mashpee Chamber Clam Bake) is just a couple weeks away! This wonderful family-friendly event, based off the Cape Cod classic tradition, came to life a couple years ago and the Chamber of Commerce put it into action last year with a wonderfully successful evening. Of course, the Lobster Fest can’t be as great as it is without the support of numerous volunteers who work the event and behind the scenes as sponsors.Clam bake (14 of 22)

Jack Lynch says when he goes to one of our events, his goal is to capture the sense of the community as a whole; he attempts to really stop and freeze a moment of genuine happiness. That is exactly what we want with our events, we want to bring the community together and give everyone a sense of belonging. We want residents and visitors to see just how great Mashpee really is as a home and as a vacation spot.

Aside from photography, Jack Lynch also does some side work on his own. He also works for the Enterprise Publishing Company doing freelance work. As for school, Jack Lynch is still a student at UMass Dartmouth, hoping to get a Bachelor in Fine Arts with a concentration in photography. After he completes his education, he hopes to go on to get a Master’s Degree.

Jack Lynch’s earliest photographic work was at Walter Reed Medical Center, based in Bethesda. While he was there, he decided to buy a camera and fell in love with it. He has been doing photography ever since.Clam bake (3 of 22)


When it comes to the Mashpee Chamber Lobster Fest, Jack Lynch would encourage everyone and anyone to go! “It’s a fantastic event—family-friendly and fun!” He says. I’m definitely considering going myself this year and I hope to see you there!
