About me
Represented worldwide by Print & Contact. Kayla Varley is an American fashion and advertising photographer/director working between LA, London, and NYC. At the age of 13 she began taking photographs as a way of tapping into her emotions. Varley’s work is meant to reel you into a spontaneous, but intentional space, where each image is meant to bring to life the human emotion and capture a fleeting, magical environment. She thrives on the philosophy that time not spent being creative is time wasted.

  • Equal Lens: meet 100 women photographers
    Equal Lens: meet 100 women photographersAn equal shot for women photographers After looking through the books of over 70 leading commercial photography agents, we found that women accounted for less than 25% of those represented. This isn’t because of a lack of talent, or a lack of desire from agents, creative agencies or clients. It’s a structural problem that must be addressed with big collective actions, such as an industry-wide commitment to always include women photographers on the lists that clients and agencies select from.
