I figured out how to this. Other answers to "duplicate' photos won't work for a large amount of pictures. You can create a second copy of your photos by highlighting them, and as of June 2015 in Yosemite Mac Photos app, going to File and then export, then export unmodified orginal. With this, I was able to export photos into a folder that could be read by LightroomCC.
In contrast to this, I used other apps, light Amazon cloud, which contrast to Adobe cloud, can read directly from the Mac "Photos" library. But until Adobe figures out how to do what other companies like Amazon are already doing, I recommend that you try to use the above workaround. I hope this saves someone from wasting time on such a simple task of importing photos in Adobe.
I would be extremely worried if this would be the ONLY solution!!! It means that I have to export some 80 GB of photos and create duplicate to be able to import into Lightroom?!?! this doesn't make sense at all!
Using some application ,you can easy to backup and export photos to windows and mac.Searching from google .
I am a 'Windows' user, but reading about Mac 'Photos' and (protected, hidden?) cloud storage looks scary!
OPs question might be answered here- How to use an external editor with Photos for OS X | iMore
The only way that I have found to work is to drag the photo from photos to my desk top, edit it, save it back to my desk top, and then drag it back into photos. Then I have to go back to the desk top and erase the copies....just a pain!

this might come a little late, but there is a fix that's quite simple:
open up your finder and find the Photos Library in the Pictures folder,
right click on it and choose Show Package Contents,
find the Masters folder, right click and choose Duplicate,
when you have a copy made, drag it to another location, preferably in the Pictures folder,
open Lightroom import panel, click on the button Include Sub-Folders, if this isn't already done,
import your photos into a single folder where you can manipulate them as you normally do
I totally agree with you... it's ridiculous that there isn't an easier way, especially when so many people use both LR CC and the Photos App.
Thank you @outdoorphoto I have found this to be the only way possible to do this with large amounts of pictures!
