Kayla Varley is a lifestyle, beauty and fashion photographer and moving image maker based between LA and London.
In 2005 she was gifted a tiny camera, and began documenting her teenage life in Bakersfield, CA.
Since then, Kayla’s natural talent for photography has seen her leave her small-town upbringing behind to travel the globe, capturing the people and places that she encounters along the way.
Her work is spontaneous yet intentional, with a playful energy. Through innovative use of colour, expression and kinetic movement, her images explore intimacy and human connection.
An eye for diverse beauty, along with a personable approach that gains the trust of her subjects quickly, make Kayla able to capture talent and real people in uniquely imaginative ways.
Meanwhile, her passions for activism, the outdoors and yoga imbue her lifestyle photography with a hyper-conscious, humanitarian quality.
Whether she is shooting environmental portraits or upscale campaign imagery for fashion and beauty brands, Kayla’s work is about finding joy in the unexpected.
