About Us

City Lights was created in 2015 to deliver a high-end portrait and corporate photography service. Founders Tekla and Gareth both have many years of experience in professional press, portrait and event photography.

The City Lights concept is to achieve great results with minimum fuss. That means working in a relaxed, professional and speedy manner. On a City Lights shoot, we work as a team to plan and manage the photoshoot, and deliver the finished images.


Tekla began her career in Budapest, working on the daily Metro paper. In London, Tekla has worked mainly in portrait photography. She won first prize in the Julia Margaret Cameron Fine Art category 2010.

Gareth has been a freelance press and PR photographer since 2003, specialising in portraiture and event photography.
