 [elf] Production Ltd. 

Creator. Visual / Fine Artist.  Movie Still / Fashion Photographer . 

Beautiful mind sees beautiful things.

To be original.

To be spontaneous.

No expectation.

Quist began her career as a professional photographer in 2006.  Best known for her usage of vivid color combinations and high contrast. Her unique blend of style is  developed from a broad range of artistic and photographic experiences.

 In 2008, she published her first book “LADY LUMINANCE” with Asia One  Books. This book consists of some of Quist’s early work  where she demonstrates her passion for film photography. It was through  film photography that Quist had created her own style blending striking  colors with high contrast and saturation.

Quist  has taken her photography to levels which have constantly inspired  those who know and direct the future trends in fashion and design.  Quist’s first encounter with publishing and marketing came with the  years spent at Modern weekly, where it quickly became clear that Quist was one of the most potent creative forces to emerge from Hong Kong and  China in the last decade.

 Quist’s talent does not stop with photography, as she has directed, designed, and produced products with a local brand Zhenation. Besides her portrait work, Quist has been focusing on collaborating with Zhenation which includes thematic projects where she incorporate her photos into various product designs. Products were on shelf in Lanecrowd and K11 Designer Store.

2016, Quist and Film Art Director Irving Cheung found [elf] production company. Besides project, Quist & Irving would operate “Artists’ Sharing” at Open Secret Studio.
