I’m just updating my website.
New things, a new direction.
Stay focused, stay safe!
Welcome to James Alexander Lyon fashion photographer’s website.
I predominantly shoot editorial fashion, beauty and lifestyle as a freelance photographer on an hourly, daily or weekly rates. See my RATECARD for further information.
My work is heavily influenced by my years of work as a designer and art director working on London agencies. I compose as a designer and shoot as a photographer, delivering strong high-quality, campaign-able and memorable images.
I work to client-approved briefs with strong narratives, delivering on time, every time. I’m strong on lighting and direction either in a studio or on location, giving clients versatility and choice. I have a clear sense of timing to coordinate all creative’s towards a paced workflow without over-runs or time-wasting, saving clients money.
A majority of my photographic time is spent with models, directing and inspiring so they perform to brief from the first image.
Planning with written and verbal communications to the whole team always ensures a successful outcome with everyone being ‘on-the-same-page’ from the minute we start work. I make it look easy, so you can concentrate on what you do best.
I am published in numerous international fashion magazines and newspapers, in print and online. I am an accredited photographer for scheduled shows at London Fashion Week.
Let’s chat! As a freelance fashion photographer and full-time creative, I’d love to help you tackle your next project. Let me help you either to define a brief that we can work towards or come up with a proposal to exceed your current expectations.
And sometimes I cut their heads off too!
I’m an award-winning and internationally published photographer specialising mainly in fashion. I’ve had a camera in my hands since I was three years old, but I really became involved with the image creation process in 1979 when I studied photography along-side Graphical Communications Design in London. After getting qualifications I went straight into working for advertising agencies in Central London during the early eighties, at the height of their creative best. As an Art Director, I learnt to pitch a vision to clients then direct other photographers, to realise these visions.
I’ve worked with high street retailers such as Virgin, Burtons, Debenhams and Marks & Spencer as well as established brands such as Guinness, Northern Telecom, Firetrap, Lee Cooper, Lee Jeans and Motorola. Whilst a good deal of my early photography was film-based the switch to digital media in 2003 accelerated my passion to create more and more imaginative imagery from an art director’s perspective. I’ve worked on projects large and small, but all with great attention to detail, professionalism and understanding of a client’s expectations and needs, providing final creative images exceeding the client’s expectations.
Each shoot has a concept and narrative that guides all of the creative team involved so that the feeling and rationale behind creative thinking is understood and guides the project to its conclusion. Teamwork and sound business practices underpin the creative elements ensuring success each time on time.
Travelling through Iceland, one of the most harsh yet beautiful island countries struck me like ice through the heart. Southeast Asia got my heart pumping. Though it’s long been on the travellers’ trail, it doesn’t take too much to get off the beaten track – whether it’s to discover that perfect beach or to delve into the lush surrounds of the rainforest. Overlooking the city of Battambang in Cambodia with my DSLR at the ready, I became entranced with a million different stories I could imagine, etched on each person’s face.
I’ve met some amazing clients who have become almost family to me. The numerous travels and projects abroad haven’t diminished my love for the unknown, but only heightened it. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. I just lucked out with being able to take mine early on in life. And I want to help you with yours. Let me help you start that journey… from one single step to a thousand. Here’s to you.
Along with our business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).

Should you choose to add a comment to any posts that we have published on News, the name and email address you enter with your comment will be saved to this website’s database, along with your computer’s IP address and the time and date that you submitted the comment. This information is only used to identify you as a contributor to the comment section of the respective blog post and is not passed on to any of the third party data processors detailed below. Only your name will be shown on the public-facing website although if the supplied email address is linked to a Gravatar account, your Gravatar photo will also be displayed.
Your comment and it’s associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to either 1.) remove the comment or 2.) remove the blog post. Should you wish to have the comment and it’s associated personal data deleted, please email us here using the email address that you commented with.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before posting a comment on our blog.
NOTE: You should avoid entering personally identifiable information to the actual comment field of any blog post comments that you submit on this website.
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or an email link like this one, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in section 6.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our own SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices. However, not all mail servers are secured in such a way. Therefore, we would suggest that you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or otherwise sensitive information within an email.
If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. We consider MailChimp to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.
Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.
While your email address remains within the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic (approximately one per month) newsletter-style emails from us.
As detailed in section 3.2 above, if you submit a comment to a blog post published on this website some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This is currently the only occasion where personal data will be stored on this website. This data is currently stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this website is built on (WordPress). In the near future we aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual.
Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as we are able to.
