Children's portrait and fashion photographer
Tekla has a wide ranging background in photography. She started her photographic journey as a photo journalist for a daily paper, worked for several publications, agencies, and organisations, before shifting to portrait photography and shooting for London's leading family photography studio.
Her work to date has taken her to shoot in many places around the world and allowed her to meet many eclectic people along the way. She has been honoured to be invited to shoot for the Duke of Edinburgh, and for royalties and celebrities in locations ranging from London, through Dubai, to Kuala Lumpur and New Zealand.
From family photography she has been drawn into the captivating world of children's fashion, where she enjoys mixing the elements of documentary and and styled portraiture to achieve her signature quality: a little unlikely, a little dark, telling a great story.
