Claire Aho (b. 1925, Finland) was a pioneering editorial photographer and innovator of colour techniques.

In the early 1950s, at a highpoint in Finnish design culture, Aho established a Helsinki-based photography studio under her own name. Her prolific output spanned advertising, editorial, reportage and fashion for a range of commercial applications. She dealt with all aspects of the creative process, from casting models, set-making, styling and lighting to developing and printing her own images.
