We had an informal family photo shoot . Great fun and some fantastic photos.
Alan was so professional. I was blown away when I entered the beautiful old barn studio with its massive lights and backdrop. Alan himself is so generous with his time and expertise. He took many shots in both colour and black and white and helped me choose the best ones. I was totally satisfied with the photos he took and had a wide range to choose from by the end of the session. Nice guy as well. Made me feel very relaxed. I'd recommend Alan to anyone looking for a top class headshot for business or social media use.

I cannot recommend enough. Alan is an extremely talented photographer. Not only did he photograph me but my 2 year old daughter too which you can probably imagine was a challenge, but Alan was brilliant, he even had chocolate to bribe her with, hahaa. His picture quality is outstanding and would recommend to anyone!
We had an amazing shoot for 3 of my daughters. A very talented photographer who makes you feel very at home and relaxed.
Beautiful images , highly recommend, amazing photographer.
Fab photographer! Would definitely recommend, he is so patient with little ones which is important when booking a photographer would definitely like to use again!
Fantastic local photographer, highly recommended 5/5
Lovely photos, lovely clean and fresh.

Amazing photographer! Highly recommended!
Stunning photography with amazing portrait results.
Had a shoot today with Alan; had a lovely day shooting and getting creative. Alan is very welcoming, friendly, excellent host, felt very comfortable and relaxed. He is very knowledgeable about lighting and angles and can tell he has a great passion for his work. As a model that has just started out in the industry he helped me with poses and I have learnt a lot, thank you. Would highly recommend.

Well what can I say? A fantastic host. Awesome studio owner. Intelligent, creative with a huge knowledge of lighting and the industry. Professional, caring and a good chef too!
Had a fabulous day with him enjoyed time with him and managed to get a few awesome portraits. Hoping when I return we get some more time to get creative. Definitely a recommendation!
I had a shoot on Wednesday with Alan. It was my second shoot ever and he made me feel extremely comfortable and was very professional in his work. I would 100% recommend Alan.
I worked with Alan on a shoot with local model Jody Sturman. We created looks through the ages from 1920s through to the '60s.
The shoot was nice and relaxed. In spite of us all having to work quite quickly to create and shoot each look. Alan is very easy to get on with. Made myself and Jody feel very comfortable throughout the shoot. Amazing hospitality, even making us a lovely home made soup with choice of breads which was delicious!!
The images we received back were amazing and they were edited in super speedy time for the amount we selected. So pleased with what we achieved. Alan is highly recommended, I would love to work with him again and I'm sure we will.
Just recently did my second Photoshoot with Alan and enjoyed every minute of it!
Alan's got a good eye for knowing what works and what doesn't work for you. So if you've never done a photoshoot before I highly recommend working with Alan. He's great at making you look and feel confident in your modelling and Super helpful with directing when needed.
Alan's a great photographer, he's easy to talk to, creative and fun to be around! Anyone thinking of trying out modelling, or wanting amazing portrait images Alan's the man you go to!
Was my first shoot today with Alan, we had the shoot at his home which is also his studio The Dairy Barn! It was amazing. Alan made me feel comfortable from the start and gave me some tips of how to pose right for the images. The images that we were able to made were lovely can't wait to see them all! Alan had great communication before the shoot we were able to sort shoot details easily and he always replied. Alan is great guy to work with and I very highly recommend working with him. Thank You Alan
Worked with Alan over a year ago now for a collab and recently went back for a shoot at his new studio @thedairybarnstudio and it was great! Alans is a fantastic photographer with amazing equipment, the photos at the end of it a truly special!
Had a great shoot with Alan a couple weeks back - fantastic photographer... incredibly professional, and felt totally at ease within the studio environment.
Very pleased with the pictures... his employment of various lighting techniques to create a variety of looks impressed me great... he is a very talented, and knowledgeable photographer who I would highly recommend!
This is the 2nd time I've worked with Alan and again I'm absolutely loving the images we created. This time we experimented with different lighting and got some awesome pics. He always knows how to light the model in the most flattering way. Looking forward to working with him again soon
Had my first shoot today with Alan at his new home with his own studio - Dairy Barn! I absolutely loved every minute, he was so welcoming and made me feel comfortable - he’s such a friendly guy to get along with. The images we captured today are magic!! If you haven’t worked with Alan then I highly recommend! We have already arranged another date to shoot at his own studio again. Thanks again Alan
I've worked with lots of photographers over the years but Alan's work is in a league of its own. Blown away by my set of portraits. Superb.
My daughter had a shoot with Alan last week, she has had many shoots but this will be one of many more to follow. The images are amazing and Mollie found Alan very easy to work with, fantastic results - extremely talented photographer!
I worked with Alan for the first time on a studio photoshoot - an art deco, 1920’s themed style. Alan is welcoming, talented and great to work with. I really appreciate his inclusive approach in agreeing to work with me as an older model, his view is that creating an image he is pleased with is the most important thing. His images are beautiful, he is a very skilled photographer, dedicated and reliable. Highly recommended and I would love to work with him again. Thank you Alan!
I did a shoot with Alan to build my modelling portfolio and he was an absolute pleasure to work with! His direction was easy to follow and definitely put me at ease. We bounced ideas off each other, making it a very enjoyable shoot! His professional approach, talented photography skills and incredible photo editing resulted in some wonderful pictures that will fit in nicely with my portfolio!
My 15 year old son, who is inexperienced when it comes to modelling, had a photo shoot with Alan Lyall last week, with a view to building a portfolio. I came along as chaperone and I was very happy with how Alan put my son at ease and guided him through the session smoothly. We are extremely happy with the photo results, and grateful for the chance to work with a photographer of such professionalism and skill. Thank you very much!
I've been wanting to work with Alan for a while and I was really happy when he said yes when I asked him. I had to cancel our plan at the last minute for personal reasons and he was very understanding and offered to reschedule. We then managed to meet up last week and I just loved our shoot . We went for a more elegant theme which is very different from what I am used to and I couldn't be happier! The photos are amazing. I can only recommend working with Alan. I would definitely love to work together again.

I had my first ever professional photo shoot with Alan to help promote my opera singing career. What an incredible person and an amazing photographer! I cannot recommend him enough. It was an absolutely pleasure working with him. His experience and professionalism shines through all his pictures and the high levels of attention to detail highlights how much pride he has in his work. I love all the photos and I hope we will work together again in the near future.
I had the pleasure of working with Alan for the first time last week. He is a thoroughly lovely gentleman, very accomplished and expert photographer, and communication was excellent throughout. I hope to be able to work with him again in the future.
Working with Alan was great! I have worked on a couple of shoots now and have enjoyed both. He is great with direction and had fab ideas. Easy to work with and would definitely recommend Alan, fantastic images and very professional photographer!
Had my first shoot with Alan at his house. Took a while to organise due to our busy schedules but that's life. He was very accommodating, had great communication before and after the shoot and the photos also turned out great.
Had a shoot with Alan on Monday. He was very good with communication before, during and after the shoot. He didn't have a problem with me bringing a chaperone which was lovely. And they got on well. MUA was set up and ready it was a lovely shoot and I would recommend working with Alan. And I hope that we get to work together again soon.
Loved working with Alan, very professional and was able to ease my nerves quickly. He arranged a MUA and food and drinks for the day. His ideas are also great! I look forward to working together in the future.
I worked with Alan for a day. He was fun, patient, thorough, hard working, spontaneous and worked with me very well. He brought out the best in me. He created some amazing images which I will use again and again for other work. He is a photographic genius and I hope to be able to model again for him.
I contacted Alan about shooting together and was extremely excited when he said yes! I had my makeup done at his house, then we did some portrait images and later on did some location shots. I had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend Alan. He is a fantastic photographer and is very professional.
I absolutely loved working with Alan. Not only was he easy to work with but the quality of his images were amazing. I'm new to the modelling industry and he talked me through what he wanted and what we doing. Would definitely recommend him.
Worked with Alan for the first time alongside other female model Nina Taylor and HMUA Laura Allen. Alan was very patient whilst hair and make up was being finished and friendly. Once on location Alan immediately started taking some amazing images and edited over 30 from the shoot for all involved. The range of different images received is also amazing as Alan captured different emotions and sides to both models and the outfits. I would definitely recommend Alan as a professional and good photographer, and work with him again.
Alan and I have done a few shoots together now, and I have to admit, he is one of my favourite photographers to work with. He is always punctual and makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. Alan is patient during shoots with animals. His eye for detail speaks volumes and it is clear that he spends a lot of time on the finer details. Highly recommended!
I have now done 2 shoots with Alan. Both times he has made me feel relaxed and comfortable. We first did a shoot involving hats and have now also done a lingerie shoot. I will definitely work with Alan again if the opportunity comes up. His pictures are very well balanced and he is brilliant at editing receiving awards for his work. If you get the chance to work with him take it as you will not be disappointed.
I've had one shoot with Alan and he absolutely brilliant. He made me feel very comfortable and throughout the shoot. He was showing me some of the photos he had taken as we went along. The end results were amazing as well. Definitely recommend Alan!
Alan is a brilliant photographer, we had a very productive shoot today. I was very pleased to be one of the first male models to work with Alan and was very impressed with his shots. He's a lovely guy and I would highly recommend him to anyone, talkative, inviting and professional. I look forward to seeing the shots we created today and would love to work with him again! Top Marks!
I highly recommend Alan, he is the first photographer that I worked with since posting that I would like to get into the modelling industry.
He is highly professional, considerate and talented. I was extremely nervous on my first photo shoot but Alan made me feel comfortable and we achieved some awesome shots! Alan can achieve lots of different images using different styles of photography so you know each shoot you will achieve something new. Alan is a lovely person yet professional, I recommend him to all!
Alan is not only a great photographer who specialises in portraits, but he is also a genuine person which makes working together a pleasure. He is friendly and easy to get along with and produces high quality images. I would recommend him highly to any model wishing portfolio pictures.

Wonderful, and accommodating. I had my head shots test shoot last week with Alan and I couldn't be happier. He packed up his portable studio and come to my house to shoot since I am five months pregnant. He was fun and a great pleasure to work with. He brought along his MUA and she did a swell job! Alan made me feel comfortable and happy with the results. Very fast get back in images, and glad to and something different to my portfolio. Highly recommended
Alan is very talented with lighting. I was impressed by his professionalism and the way in which he works to such a high standard. He is a great photographer and really deserves to go far. I hope we can work again soon when the weather gets brighter again.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for working with me, I enjoyed the shoot so much and it was a honour to work with a man of your skills. I hope to have the pleasure of working with you again.
WOW WOW WOW you are the best photographer I have ever worked with thank you for making my upcoming birthday so special.
I had an amazing shoot today with Alan, very professional and fun. I love all of the photos he took today! I definitely recommend everyone to work with him, he's a really nice person and amazing photographer. I would love to work with him again in the near future.
This photographer is fantastic. I had one of the best shoots possible and came away with some awesome images. Alan made me feel so at ease and time flew by which is a good sign! Would recommend to any model and I wouldn't hesitate to have future shoots with Alan. Very professional at all times.
I've had quite a few shoots lately, however my most recent shoot was with a photographer Alan Lyall. He was amazing to work with and I would definitely recommend him. It was my first studio shoot, however he made me feel completely comfortable and gave me direction whilst I got used to being in a studio, in front of the camera. He took some great photos of me which I love and I'm really impressed with the end result.
Alan has an excellent attention to detail and a real eye for a good picture. He was very professional to work with and it was a pleasure to collaborate. I would definitely recommend and look forward to working together in the future!
I had a great time working together with Alan, I felt comfortable and relaxed the whole shoot. He is very professional and knows his stuff to do with photography. A very down to earth person as well. I would totally recommend him as his photography is great!!!!
