Darryn Lyons, who rose to prominence in Australia and the United Kingdom as a paparazzo with pink Mohawk, has listed his longtime Sydney investment.

It is a four bedroom terrace with private, sunlit courtyard on a contemporary Jacksons Landing, Pyrmont row.

Lyons, who has enjoyed $1650 weekly rentals, bought the three level property in 2001 for $866,000.

The home comes with a buyers guide of $2.1 million for its September 3 auction through Little Real Estate agents Mark Horn and Christie Mortimer. More than two dozen inspectees went through yesterday's open-house.

Lyons still owns another investment in the Harry Seidler designed Horizon in Darlinghurst.

The Geelong born photographer made his name in the early 1990s as a paparazzi in London especially after he founded the picture company, Big Pictures, which supplied paparazzi-style photographs for news organisations around the world.

Branding himself "Mr Paparazzi", there were regular appearances on television shows such as Celebrity Big Brother, Top Gear and the Dragons' Den.

On his return to Australia, Lyons took to local politics becoming mayor of Geelong in 2013 until earlier this year.

Lyons and fiancee, Elissa Friday took up residence in Geelong with his local paper once describing his home as a menagerie, a museum, a showcase and a wonder-world from the Trafalgar Square-like lions at the front gate.

He recently said his latest project was sorting out his “millions” of photos, developing some conceptual ideas for their reproduction.
