VALAMO Studio is a high-quality photography studio based in Helsinki, Finland serving primarily business customers.

Founded by Marko Hannula who has nearly two decades of photography experience in studio, sports, and news photography as well as stock photography. Over the years we have served such customers as Iltalehti, Aamulehti, Julkaisu Bookers, and SM-liiga as well as several other noteworthy clients.

Nowadays we shoot with Fujifilm medium format and APS-C digital equipment. We also shoot 35mm film with Nikon gear. In-studio we rely on Elinchrom lighting equipment.

NEW! We have begun licensing co-operation with Fine Art America in spring 2020. Selected images may be purchased as a canvas print, framed print, metal print, and more! Visit for more information. 

The projects page contains both stock images and some of my non-commercial work which I shoot simply to learn new techniques and photography genres. I also believe that stepping outside one's comfort zone is the most effective way to acquire new skills.

Please let us know your vision and we will fulfill it with passion.
