Juha Törmälä is one of Finland´s top portraitists and he has been widely published. His work is well known for its qualities: Timeless portraits where his subjects project a strong, graceful presence. Juha has held one exhibition, Twelve Men, in 2015 and that same year he was chosen Magazine Photographer of the Year in Edit, a top media industry competition in Finland.
Our founder Outi Törmälä is a highly regarded, experienced photographer who is best known for her profound and spontaneous images. She has held three solo exhibitions, the latest in 2018. This exhibition has been widely featured in the media for its images with a significant theme, the self-image of women.
Outi was the co-creator of Tampere University Photojournalism Program, which has been a great influence on Finnish photography for almost two decades.
Sanna Lehto is a talented portrait and fashion photographer. Her work employs beautiful use of colour and she has a great eye for photographic detail.
Sanna was one of the finalist of The 33rd edition of the International Festival of Photography at Hyères. She also won there the Public and City Of Hyères Prize. She recently completed her Master's studies in fine art photography at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture.
Quiet came to be in 2014 when we, Outi and Juha, decided to merge our companies. A couple since 2005, we also share a similar love for portraiture and photojournalism in general and decided to work together going forward. It turned out to be a well-informed move and we have since solidified our position in the field and continued to attract new clients for commercial work.
We added Sanna Lehto in 2017. Sanna took part in a portrait workshop given by Juha in 2015 as part of her masters degree studies at Aalto University and her talent stood out right away. She is a relative newcomer, but has since risen fast to enjoy steady work with top magazines in Finland.
Our emphasis is in everything regarding people in pictures. Magazines portraiture is our heritage and we draw from that for our commercial work. In addition to magazines we do advertising and brand work, book projects, corporate communications such as annual reports, customer magazines and personnel shoots.
In addition to our creative vision we offer production services from small to medium scale studio and location shoots to location scouting, casting and post-production.
Our studio is located seaside at the Cable Factory in Helsinki. Inside an old industrial complex serving hundreds of creatives, our studio has a classic vibe with modern capabilities and an awesome view of the Baltic sea. Not for rent, our studio serves five photographers to allow for flexible booking.
