Kayla Varley

Photographer & Director

Kayla is an American fashion, lifestyle, and beauty photographer and director based in Los Angeles.

She was born in Bakersfield, CA and at a young age she was given a tiny camera and began to document her teenage life. Over the years she worked to develop her style whilst growing up in a small town with few options for creative outlets and it became all she wanted to do. In 2010, she moved to Los Angeles to attend Art Center College of Design. She then began working in Los Angeles, New York, and worldwide.

Kayla’s recent work focuses most on fashion, beauty, lifestyle and motion. Her work explores the intimacy and connection with another human and touches on emotions through color, expression and kinetic movement. Her work is about finding the joy in the unexpected and the magic that happens when you connect with another person. There is a playfulness that is woven through her work.  She has an eye for unique and diverse beauty and has a knack for gaining the trust of her subjects quickly and with ease.

Some of her clients include Levi’s, Ipsy, Ebay Fashion, Josie Maran Cosmetics, Nuuly, Vanity Fair, Lively, and GHD Hair.
