Cahute is a photo studio
dedicated to portrait photography on paper.
We believe in photograph as an object:
we make photographs that will last,
and can be passed on.
We use a large format camera that takes
8x10 inches images (20.32x25.40cm)
We photograph directly on paper, in black and white.
We do not use photoshop, nor film, nor filters.
We process our images in caffenol,
a mix of coffee, vitamin C and washing soda.
Due to this process and its imperfections,
each print we make is a unique, fully experimental artwork.
that we create together with you.
We work hard to make our process as eco-friendly as possible.
We use ISO 9001:2008, FSC-certified paper.
Our developer is 100% biodegradable.
Used fixer is collected and recycled
at a Helsinki Region Environmental Services (HSY) station.
One photo session costs 59€
and includes a hand-stamped portrait
on Harman direct positive paper,
and a digital version of your photograph.
Sessions are by appointment.
You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cahute is located in the historical
