Friends (2013)

About Me

Go to my Website at or please friend me on FB and on Instagram at garylyonsfoto

If I request friendship, it is because I truly love your images or anticipate the possibility of us working together.

I have been shooting Beauty and Fashion for over 30 Years and I am very fortunate to be surrounded by a great group of people.

If you are a model in SD - OC - LA then by all means friend me. You never know when I might tap you for work.

Looking for a model... I need a model that has these traits.

1. 5'9" to 5'11"
2. Really really edgy but with minimal or no tats
3. Quite thin in body type.. small bust line, small hips
4. Great fashion sense.
5. Not shy (doesn't necessarily mean any nudity)
6. Amazing face but non traditional beauty. Think Rooney Mara!
7. Willing to spend a full day shooting.
8. Not a Diva.
9. Doesn't mind working with a full team for what will be amazing images in Southern California.
10. Loves a fun shoot and has a fabulous sense of humor.

Message me!

I am now looking for a couple of models who seriously dance ballet or a contemporary style that would make Mia Michaels go crazy! This is a personal project and I will be paying the model/dancer. You must be 5'7" or taller.. Ballet body and no tattoos that show in a dance leo!

I am always looking for amazing retouchers, models, hair dressers and MUA's.
So please reach out!

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots afternoons on Wednesdays or Mondays Melbourne time until March 8th. I'm currently working with another photographer to do these shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear and do more on location remote shoots. I have a CBD apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops, props & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna. My rates for remote shoots would be less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for and if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop and screen share so you can control the settings/shots & we could chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot. The gear we have is a Sony full frame camera with a range of lenses available; 50mmf1.8, 85mmf1.4gm, 17-28f2.8, 28-75f2.8, 105f1.4gm, 70-200f2.8gm
Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
