About me
Represented by AMP Agency London - UK https://www.ampagency.co.uk/photographers/kayla-varley/ Represented by The Garden Party - US https://www.thegardenpartynyc.com/kayla-varley 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. Kayla currently lives happily on the West side of Los Angeles with her fiance, Dane, and two puppies.

  • 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.
