Hiding Behind the Lens

Ally Meyers has loved photography ever since she got her first disposable camera at the age of 6. She loves being able to capture fleeting moments and make them eternal with the push of a button. Yet her constant position behind the camera lens has kept her isolated from relationships. What happens when her passion for photography lands her a job as One Directions personal photographer? Will the luscious lifestyle of the boys take her from the photographer to the photographed? Or will she continue to live vicariously through the filter of her lens?
Well, there’s only one way to find out.
A Harry Styles fanfic.


2. Conference Rooms and Confrenations


The following morning Allyson walked into the conference room head held high. She was nervous yes, but she dressed confidently in a black pencil skirt paired with a simple button up shirt and stilettos. She was greeted with a few hellos and a pair of piercing green eyes, which followed her every move.

Her hands shook as she pulled up the images and prepared to address the small crowd. She glanced around at all her superiors, the band manager Paul, the publicist Amy, the boys, and some big shoot executive.

Nervously she cleared her throat and whispered a tiny prayer to the heavens, ‘Please don’t let me mess this up’ before she began:
“Ok, so um, Id like to thank everyone for being here. I have ten of the best shots and various versions of each with different filters and contrasts. So if you’ll just each mark down which you prefer, we’ll tally the vote at the end of the slideshow,” She announced, after receiving the nod of approval she began the slideshow.

Throughout the entire slideshow Ally tried to keep her face void of emotion. This was perhaps the make it or break it moment for her career as One Direction’s photographer. Many people had speculated about how young she was, and her lack of professional experience. Her talent however could be seen through each photograph.

As the ending slide was displayed on the screen she rose from her seat and shyly announced this was the final photograph. Her eyes scanned the crowd for a reaction and she was pleased to see nearly everyone smiling their approval. She thought it was the best shot and captured each boys personality. Of course she was a tad biased.

“Ms. Meyers, could you please return to the previous slide?” The manager inquired raising his pen in the air after the image disappeared.
“Yeah I’d like to see that one again,” Louis responded jotting something down on his paper.

As she displayed the image again the manager spoke, “I can’t speak for everyone but I dare say we have a new album cover,” Her heart nearly leapt out of her chest as everyone chorused their approvals and rose from their seats.

“Ms. Meyers your photography and editing is phenomenal,” the manager said shaking her hand.
“Thank you so much sir, I was really hoping you would approve,” she smiled.

“Now I’d like to talk to you about getting individual photo shoots for each of the lads. I was thinking perhaps this week you could work with each of them individually just for a couple of hours before we go on tour. Of course we would be bringing you with us to capture the highlights of each show. You and Amy the publicist could work to update the boys’ social media after each show,” He continued leading her over to Amy.

After a few introductions and the final tally was taken Ally’s favorite picture was decided on. She shook a few more hands and said her polite farewells to the important people. Now it was time to talk this week’s individual photo shoot with the boys.


“Alright Ally I’d really like to go first,” Niall smiled sitting down next to her. “Can we do something with a trampoline?!” he said excitedly.

“Ah hell yeah we need a trampoline!” Zayn said sitting down across from her.

“I’m sure we could do something with a trampoline,” Ally laughed writing down each of the boys ideas as they spit-balled them at her.

“And we should dress casually, like something you’d see us in every day,” Liam said.

“There should be serious and funny shots,” Louis chimed.

“Maybe a close up,” Zayn pondered.

“Mmmmhm,” Ally said scribbling these all down in her book of ideas.

“I think we should have a sexy picture,” Harry drawled leaning back in his chair. He looked right at her and asked, “That’s what the fans want; do you think you can handle that Meyers? You are tad inexperience,”

The room went quiet as everyone waited for her response. Harry’s tone was challenging. She froze and met his piercing gaze before she responded to everyone’s surprise:
“Styles, I can handle a sensual photograph. It’ll take some editing to make you look sexy but I guarantee I can handle it.”

His eyes narrowed as his friends erupted into fits of laughter.

“I think your challenge has been accepted mate,” Liam laughed slapping Harry on the back.

“Perhaps you should go last since yours will take the most work,” Zayn smirked giving Ally a little wink.

Harry sat silently as the boys all made arrangements for when they would meet with Allyson. As Zayn had joking suggested Harry’s appointment was last. He would meet with her Friday afternoon for his individual photo shoot.

“I’ll be there at 5,” he stated dully, rising from his seat and straightening his jacket.

“I thought we agreed 3,” Ally said rising as well.

“I’ll get there when I get there.” Was his reply as he started to walk past her.

“Hey! Styles,” she practically yelled as he reached the door.

“What,” he said rolling his eyes.
His eyes watched her as she marched towards him . She leaned in as close as he had been to her the day before and breathed:

“Don’t bring your attitude with you,”

With that he watched she strut out the door. The faint clicking of her heels on the tile slowly fading.

He sighed and ran a hand through his messy curls and thought smugly to himself:

‘This girl is in for one hell of a photo shoot’
