"The Honey Bee has been around for a long time, that makes me an old photographer!" Bishop was the beginning of a wonderful career, taking family portraits. I showed my work at Art shows in Beverly Hills, Westwood, Encino, Westlake, and on invitation. My work became fun, loving, creative, well composed, and it was different!
In 1981, I opened a Studio and Gallery in Woodland Hills. The uniqueness of my style, the variety, and the vitality attracted many exciting and discerning people, including, Barbara Walters, Vin Scully, Delta Burke and many other very special people. Over time I gained a fine reputation.
In 1996, I gave it all up, and married my great love, Martin Wolf, and chose the good life. I left my studio, my profession, and moved to Bishop, CA. We biked around the country on a Harley with a side car. Since his passing in 2010, I have returned to my greatest joy, beautiful portraits. Here in Bishop I have a great indoor studio with fabulous drops for those wanting indoor, classic, or professional looks, and great settings for the outdoor portraits which are my specialty.
The Honey Bee's commercial photography work by Gayla Wolf* has appeared around the world for countless family walls and wallets, art exhibits, ad campaigns, for the Visit Bishop, plus local media sources for Bishop Chamber of Commerce, including the Inyo Register.
