"Our eyes are hungry all the time, and they have to be fed with color and light and flesh and humor. You have to keep feeding your eyes and your soul ... with art and poetry and films and people having fun. Having fun is an art too, you know." Dennis Hopper

Hi, I'm Mandy-Lyn. I'm a photographer, film maker and writer and my home is East Vancouver on Canada's West Coast. I am very proud to be Canadian, even more proud to be a native of British Columbia. I shoot 35mm color film with an old Canon camera that my Grandpa gave me. Thanks for being here. 

I love rock n roll, blues, cowboy songs, heavy metal, twanging electric guitars and crazy hillbilly mountain music, I make cassette mixtapes full of my favourite stuff. You can listen to them here. I've got a radio show called Magic Hour on No Fun Radio - you can stream archived episodes of Magic Hour for free. It is a most excellent time! My top five favorite bands are GG Allin, Link Wray, Bo Diddley, Hank Williams (all three) and Motorhead. My favorite writer is Lester Bangs. My favorite movies are Repo Man, Wild Angels by Roger Corman and White Lightning with Burt Reynolds. My heroes are Loretta Lynn, Wanda Jackson and Belle Starr. Nothing steams my beans more than the fact that, historically, women haven't had the freedom or support to be legendary like Steve McQueen or Clint Eastwood did. But that will change real soon... soon enough. I have two doggos that I rescued in the desert: the Stoogeman and Bocephus. They are very good boys. 

Curious about the white stars ☆? I'm proud to share uncensored versions of my work (truly the way it was meant to be seen!) through Findrow - which is a private, subscription based source for adult content.  Having a income source (however small that may be) makes a meaninful impact on my ability to make and share more art. Your subscriptions turn into film - and I sure dang appreciate that. 

My photographs have been seen in magazines like Juxtapoz, VICE, Penthouse, HUSTLER, Vogue Italy and DiCE. I've had the pleasure of collaborating and shooting for some rad international brands like HUF, Vans, Altamont, Volume 4, CRAP Eyewear and O MIGHTY.

wanna say hi? :-)
