Hello my friends! We have just invented an incredible working method that we are now happy to share with you. Our all future projects are from now on based on the revolutionary Korea’s STSDESFGSMEHSGVTSGPGSHCMUSHT® method that changes everything. Again. It just works. It’s like tiger unleashed.

And if you haven’t figured it out on your own, the method’s name is based on it’s original version: Super Talented Super Dad Eating Super Food to Get Super Much Energy to Have Super Good Vibes to Take Super Good Photos to Get Super Happy Customers that Make Us Super Happy Too.

If you are an old friend of Korea you might know that we haven’t been too active to publish tearsheets of our projects, but because we just got this one all the way from Canada we are going to make an exception.

This one is from one of the latest Canadian Business Magazine. They made an article of “Canada’s own boy” Nokia’s CEO Mr. Steven Elop. Photos for the article was taken by your Korea’s finest Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. The client loved the photos and trusts us, that’s what they do. Thanks to our patented STSDESFGSMEHSGVTSGPGSHCMUSHT® method.

Good Shit World Wide 2011!



Jarkko Martikainen: Usko

Today the new album of Jarkko Martikainen has been released. It is titled ‘Usko’ which means faith in Finnish. Usko is also an old traditional male name in Finnish.

The picture concept of the album was created by me together with Jarkko, and graphic designer Jussi S. Karjalainen. It’s a visual story about an artist living by himself and thinking about faith and his relationship to religions. The photos of the album is showing how this man is building his own wooden poorboy (vaivaisukko) called Usko. The artist is starting to live his life together with this little wooden man.

These wooden poorboys have traditionally standed outside of churches to collect money for the sick and poor people. This wooden poorboy in the pictures was actually builded by Jarkko Martikainen himself.

The new album is excellent and I strongly recommend you to get it as a really beautiful limited deluxe version that includes not only a CD and a DVD, but also hell of a lot of great pictures taken by me.

All the best, Peki


Happy Tuesday to everyone! We do not want to be rude but how is your ass? Fat? Skinny? EPIC? Actually, it really doesn’t matter, even if it’s expanding faster than the European Union – the only thing that matters is that it should be shaking. If you do not have any good tunes around, you can do like we did by buying DJ Fett Burger‘s and Annie‘s fantastic (and super limited) Tuesday Mix. At least it crowded the dancefloor here in the the palace of Korea. If you want to get this 5 euros gem, be sure to be quick and contact your personal dealer monsieur Per Dein. More info: HERE

BTW, the background image of Annie’s site is taken by our own dancing king kong, Mr. Aki-Pekka Sinikoski himself. Shine On You Crazy Diamond!




A lot of great projects in the pipeline right now. Magazine covers, four album art works (including covers), portraits of and for different business leaders, marketing photos for different companies etc. I’m also happy to announce that I will take part in the MoA 2011 exhibition taking place in Helsinki at May 12th-29th.

Samae Koskinen‘s new album Kuuluuko, kuuntelen has been released today. I did the album art work for it together with 2–5 years old kids. My consept for the album was simple but great: To use the one and same photo for every cd single, cd album, and the vinyl – but to make the expression for all these covers totally different with the help of children’s drawings on top of the photo. Technically this was made in good old school way: Big black and white photo prints painted over with oil crayons by several very young artists. Graphic design for the album was made by Jussi S. Karjalainen from my Super8 Studio.

You can find the album art works for the CD and vinyl versions on the top. Below you will find the video sampler with all of these images. Check out iTunes for the deluxe digital version of the album with the digital booklet. Btw, Samae’s album is excellent!

Yours, Peki




Good books, long walks by the sea shore, and the loved ones around you. O’boy! I always surprise myself with realizing what a good investment a long holiday is to onerself. Now I’m so entusiastic, full of energy and ready for new adventures.

Two weeks ago I was shooting photos for one of my forthcoming art project in Denmark. I was fortuned to travel there together with my family so it didn’t feel like working at all. We were playing together with my daughter on the snow covered beaches, spotting the lighthouses and really enjoying the cold winds blowing from sea and filling our lungs with fresh air and our heads with new ideas.

Even that I might sound naive I have to admit something. I really, trully love photographing. Sometimes when I’m busy with hundreds of different kind of projects, I forget to say it outloud. But here we go: I love photographing! It was crystalized to me during the holiday; finding myself standing in the ice cold water in Denmark just to capture the perfect image.

So, now I’m back in Helsinki and ready for the action. Waiting eagerly on what year 2011 will bring us. I have updated my web portfolio so please do yourself a favor and reserve a small break from everything else, grab a good cup of coffee, lift your feet on the table and enjoy the great new photos I have uploaded for you.

Cheers, Peki

P.S. A couple of months ago I was shooting an advertisement for Genelec together with the guys from Look Mama + Las Palmas in co-operation with N2. We did the advertisement with living legends Michael Monroe and Sam Yaffa. You can find the still picture for the ad in my portfolio. HERE you can find the video with the some behind the scene clips of the actual photo shooting.




Peki a.k.a. Aki-Pekka Sinikoski is represented in the States by the Wonderful Machine. The people working there for him are huge fans of great photos and it has been really nice for him to be represented by the people who truly love his pictures. And guess what, the last two months of 2010 was fully booked already by the end of October so it seems that also his clients love his photos.

Year 2010 was superb for the citizens of Korea. We really managde to extend our client base. We did wonderful job with clients like The New Yorker, Veikkaus, Telia Sonera, Ruukki, Global Blue, Universal Music, Suunto, Sanoma Magazines, Aalto University and Polyvinyl Records. But of course we didn’t forget our old loyal clients either. For example during the last six months of the year Peki shooted four covers + cover stories for Suosikki, which is the biggest youth magazine in Scandinavia. It is also a client who has been using Peki’s photographic skills for more than 10 years now. That’s what we call a loyal customer relationship!

Suosikki made a cover story about juvenile delinquents trying to make their way back from the shadows to the brighter side of society. Suosikki ended up running a close up photo of one of these guys as a whole page opening photo for the story. On the cover shot the same guy was arrested by the cops. Afterwards Peki got feedback from the magazine, its readers, and even from his collegues that these were “great images with a strong emotional feeling”.

Technical qualities like good light and composition can make a good photo but if you are looking for a great one – it’s not enough. Like Mark Murrmann, photo editor at Mother Jones, puts it “What makes a great photo is an image that not only conveys some kind of information, but also works on an emotional level. It can be punch-you-in-the-gut direct, it can be more subtle, something that pulls you in slowly and allows you to wander around the image, keep coming back to it even if you aren’t sure why; it can be funny, witty, wry; it can be something that elicits a feeling of remembrance, something that reminds you of your own life; it can be horrifying, or gratifying. But it has to do something; it has to connect with the viewer.”

Most of Peki’s clients want to make their voice visual and they want their voice to be heard. They contact him because they are chasing great photos that stands out from the constantly growing flood of photographs. Even though we might sound like American TV Shop: It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what kind of photo are great for your business. It’s enough that you know that you need the great photos and you know where to get them. And hey, you should know it by now. Baby, welcome to Korea!

P.S. Peki is still shooting somewhere in Denmark, but don’t worry – he will be back next week so more truly great photos is available really soon.





Good news my friends! I have just signed a contract for a solo exhibition at the Finnish Museum of Photography. It will take place in September 2011. I’m really happy that I got a chance to exhibit my works in the greatest photography arena in Finland. Still almost one year to go but hey, I have to warn you: This is going to be the BIG one!

All the best, Peki




Sleep, honey, c-vitamin, chicken soup and fairy tales about dragons. I’m at home with my daughter trying to help her to beat the flu. She just started to build a hut in our bed for her imaginery friend, a dog called Tapi. Pretty good signs that we can soon say au revoir to snot, coughing and fever.

Autumn has arrived not only with my daughter’s flu from kindergarden but also with coloful leaves and many great photo projects. I have just finished some shootings for companies like TeliaSonera, Ruukki and Global Blue. Next stop will be to shoot images for the visual identity of B-open Art Festival in Bergen, Norway.

Feels great to be back in Helsinki!

Cheers, Peki



God morgon Sverige! In the shooting set up with my daughter Isla. For the last weeks I have have been working here in Södermalm with the pre-production for my next photo project starting this Autumn. After weeks of a super intensive work session I’m now having one week holliday here with Isla. So beware Victoria – there is a new princess in town!

What a gig at Forbidden City in Peking. All these wonderfull people came over just to see me perform… or not really… But I defenetly had one of the most bizarre shootings ever in Forbidden City with lovely rock band Stalingrad Cowgirls from Finland. It felt really quite weard to suddenly realize that there was a hell of a lot more people behind the camera than in front of the camera. Actually there was people lining to see our photo shooting! Only in Asia!

The shooting was a blast and so were Riina, Henna and Enni. We did even more photos back in Helsinki. The photo below ended up as the cover of Suosikki magazine.

Yours, Peki
