KOREA // Aki-Pekka Sinikoski, Photographer from Helsinki, Finland
Korea is a Finnish word for something bright, beautiful, glorious, and colorful. It is also a combination of a micronation and a creative studio ruled by photographer Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. Even though he is the King of Korea, rumors tell that he never wears a crown and that most people call him Peki. Korea creates, produces, and delivers everything from concept and service design to super nice photographs.
In Korea, we believe in fresh ideas, good quality, and great customer service. We are good at what we do and we work hard. We use the best pieces of equipment in the industry to deliver what you want and even more. It's our work but always your story. We are committed to making your voice visible. That is the reason why we are not only "shooting photos". Our passion is to understand who you are and what you are doing. The better we know you, the better we can serve you. This attitude to truly serve our customers is probably why so many of our new customers become our loyal customers.

“Thank you Peki for the best photos ever taken on me. Everything went super smoothly and the result is gorgeous.” –HERRA YLPPÖ, Artist
“The quality of Sinikoski’s photos are really high, partly even masterful because of his explicit way of reading symbols.”
–ASKO MÄKELÄ, Museum Director of Finnish Museum of Photography 1996–2007
“The starting point was that I had several visual ideas and I needed a good photographer. I got several recommendations for Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. When I contacted him I thought that he is "just a great photographer" but in the end, I got even so much more than just killer photos! Peki listened carefully to all my ideas, selected the good ones, and made them great. He really understood who we are and what we do. He also recommended a perfect graphic designer for us and together they crystalized the whole visual identity to our band (and for our IKKILLYK and DWZYREK album, promotional photos, posters, ads, merchandise…) They also designed our webpage and helped with social media, PR and other communicational stuff. Some of these ideas even turned out to be performance concepts to our forthcoming concerts; including steampunk instruments, ballerinas, and other pretty avant-gardist stuff. –Brilliant, brilliant stuff done with a great passion!”
–JUSSI HYYRYNEN, WÖYH!
