This just means they are m/m–melanoid–(no iridescence from the iridophores) and they are a/a–Albino. They still might have a little bit of yellow coloration if they are AX/AX or AX/ax. [1]

While the word photophobia literally translates to a "fear of light”. Its not actually that you are scared of light, but instead, are incredibly sensitive to it. Animals with albinism experience photophobia due to the lack of pigment in the iris, which does not allow the eyes to filter out light.
