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.


3. Sarcasm and Sensuality


All week Ally had been working individually with each member of the band in between their practices for the rapidly approaching tour. This was the week before the launch and management wanted to release a few photos to helps get the tour some more publicity.

Niall’s wish was granted and he got to go first.

Photographing Niall was easy, and fun. Ally noted as each shot she took expressed how laid back and fun he was.

“I can’t believe you actually got us this huge trampoline!” Niall yelled as he flipped again.

“I can’t believe you can actually flip that many times without getting sick!” she laughed crouching down to get a better angle.

“OK Niall, I think I’ve got some great shots of you on the trampoline. Can you change into your second outfit please?” Ally asked walking towards her bag to grab another lens.

“Ohhh is it sexy time?” Niall said shaking his shoulders.

Ally couldn’t help but laugh as he muttered “Unz, unz unz,” and stripped his shirt off.

She loved getting to know him. He was so friendly and accepting, and his upbeat personality was contagious.

Getting Niall to be serious for this shot was incredibly difficult however. Every time she thought she had the perfect shot he would start laughing! Twenty shots later she finally had the shot and informed him he was free to go.

“Thanks Ally” Niall grinned as he kissed her sweetly on the cheek. “I don’t care what Harry says I think you’re an amazing photographer. Your idea with the rose is great!”

“That really means a lot” Ally replied with a slight smile. “I really love photography and this is just a dream come true. Trust me the ladies are going to swoon over sexy Niall,” Ally giggled mimicking his earlier shoulder shaking.

“They better! I’m tired of Zayn, Harry, and Liam being the sexy ones!” Niall called over his shoulder. He had to run to a vocal lesson, leaving Ally to prepare for Liam and Zayn’s shoots. They would be back to back seeing as both of them had busy schedules for the week.

Liam and Zayn’s photo shoots went just as smoothly as Niall’s. They were both easy going and open to any ideas Ally had. But she would be lying if she didn’t agree with Niall. They were quite sexy.

Taking their sensual shots had been extremely enjoyable. She had taken a the bad boy approach with Zayn and she was going to have a hard time picking his best photo. He oozed sexual tension and his interaction with the camera was insane.

“I think you’re going to give your fans a heart attack,” Ally said showing Zayn a couple of the photos she’d taken. “These aren’t even edited and they’re amazing.

“What can I say the camera loves me,” Zayn smirked wrapping an arm casually around Allyson’s shoulder. “It does help that the photographer is easy on the eyes.” He winked playfully pulling a strand of her hair.

“You really are a flirt Malik!” Ally grinned giving him a little shove. “Send in Liam,” she ordered with a smile.

“Your wish is my command,” he said with a bow as he ran to get Liam.

An hour later Liam was finished and scrolling through a few of the shots with her.

“Damn Meyers these pictures are good!” He said clearly ogling himself.

“Yes, yes you’re very attractive. Now can I have my camera back? I promise I’ll print you out any of these you want to give to your girlfriend,” Ally said jokingly reaching for the camera.

“Come on this one is just gold!” he said pointing to the screen. “I think you should use it,”

“Ok I’ll work on it tonight. Now run along you’ve had enough time to check yourself out” she said playfully pushing him towards the door.

“You can never get enough of this body!” he smirked gesturing to himself.

“You’re full of it!” she hollered at him as he walked away.

“You like it!” was his smug reply as he headed off.

It was finally Friday and Ally was nervously getting ready for Harry’s photo shoot.

She had finished up early with Louis, which was easy because he loved to take pictures.  He was full of ideas and even though he was nervous at first, ended up taking some incredibly sexy photos.  He too had warmed up to her and made her feel accepted.

“I’m so excited you’re coming with us on tour!” he said giving her a final hug and grabbing his things.

She was certain Harry would not be as animate.


Harry waltzed in a half past five talking on the phone.

“You’re late,” Ally said crossly, her arms folded across her chest.  He could see she was frustrated.

“Well I’m here aren’t I?” he replied with a shrug. Taking off his beanie and running a hand through his hair he sat down.

“Don’t get comfortable Styles. We’re going to do the trampoline shots first,” she said with a twinge of harshness in her tone.

“Now Meyers you shouldn’t give your boss an attitude,” Harry said standing up. “You won’t get anywhere with that tone,” he finished as he walked over to the trampoline.

She took a deep breath and turned to face him. He did have a point, no matter how annoying it may be, she had to regard him in the most professional way. He was her biggest critic, and she was determined to make him admit she had talent. Despite her “inexperience”.

“Jump a little higher,” she instructed snapping the first picture.

“Look at the camera,” she reminded as she snapped a few more.

“Good. Now I need you to look amused... No not smug Harry... Yes! That’s it.” She kept snapping photos and sat down to get a better vantage point.

“Look directly above the camera, yeah! One arm up, the other on your boot” she kept snapping.

“Pretend you’re skateboarding...mmmhm. Like that.”

They went on like this for half an hour; him silently jumping around on the trampoline, and her snapping away, occasionally instructing him. The dynamic was much different than any of the other shoots. The other lads had interacted with her more. His stony composure left her pictures somewhat lacking. She was determined to change that.

“Alright let’s move on to the next portion of the shoot,” she said letting the camera hang limply around her neck. She placed her hands on her hips and ordered him to change into his “sexy” outfit.

He stepped off the trampoline and headed towards his bag, he glanced out of the corner of his eye to make sure she was watching him and slowly took his shirt off.

He was a little sweaty from jumping around so much in all those layers. He hadn’t anticipated it would take as long as it did to please her; so taking his shirt off felt wonderful. The cool air hit his back and chills ran up his spine. He waited a while longer before switching into a black button up shirt.

Ally gasped quietly. He was absolutely stunning. His chiseled chest was nearly impossible to look away from. She mentally cursed herself for taking so much pleasure in simply looking at him.

You have to be professional. Remember, you have something to prove, ‘she mentally reminded herself pretending to be fiddling with the camera lens.

As he finished buttoning up his shirt he drawled, “Where do you want me?”

“Umm, over there, by the wall,” she stammered trying to regain some composure.

He slowly walked over and leaned against the wall, his hands stuffed deep into his black trouser pockets. His eyes met hers in a steely gaze and she willed herself not to blink.

Regaining a bit of confidence she broke eye contact and positioned the camera. “Let’s try to make you sexy Styles,”

“You don’t think you I can be sexy,” he stated with distaste.

“I didn’t say that,” she started adjusting the lens “you just aren’t really working with the camera. Most of your shots lack emotion and as a photographer I think emotion is what makes the picture. You can look sexy and not be sensual. The emotion has to be raw,” she stated stepping a little closer to him.

He mimicked her movement pushing himself off the wall, “I can give you emotion Meyers. Emotions you can’t even fathom.” He asserted. He was mere inches from her now. “The question isn’t whether or not I have emotion; the question is whether or not you are capable of making me feel sensual.”

His proximity and steely gaze left her speechless. He knew he what affect he was having on her, she could tell that by the smirk which danced on his lips. She hated that he was making her feel so powerless. He was winning this battle, but she was not about to stand back and let him.

From somewhere within she mustered up the courage to answer him, and he was not prepared for her response.

In what seemed like half a second he was back up against the wall with her hands pulling apart the buttons on his button up. “Don’t move Styles,” she whispered in his ear as she physically positioned him exactly where she wanted him. Her hands lightly grazed his skin as she positioned his shirt like she wanted.

He was completely stunned at her sudden assertiveness. He scorned himself for finding it so incredibly alluring.

“You’re dangerous. That’s what the fans love about you.” She whispered again. “You’re mysterious and the idea of uncovering the mystery beneath your curls is thrilling.” She said as she ran her fingers gently through his hair, attempting to achieve that ‘morning after’ look. “You have a secret Harry, tell me with your eyes.”  

And with that she placed a single red rose in his hand.

His eyes locked with hers and she began snapping, never breaking the connection.

Never had she taken such passion filled photographs.

Never had silence been so electrifying.

Harry Styles was sensuality personified.
