S. Hartikainen is a photographer who has specialized in pin-up and alternative photos. His best talent is in close portraits and photos with story. He especially likes to do pulp art styled photos with texts like old murder mystery book covers. Sami is also able to work with multiple models at the same time.
All the photos in my Advent Calendars in 2016 and 2015 are his work.
I have worked with Sami for a couple of years now and I’m happy to see how much he has developed in this time. The best thing about our co-operation is that we both are able to try out things outside of our comfort zones, that really is the only way to get better.
Sami is also one of few photographers who can take the models needs and wishes in the number one priority in photos. Maybe I’ve something to do with that, because I have given him a lot of feed back about every photo that he has taken this time, even when I personally don’t have anything to do with the photos. This kind of co-operation is very natural to us, and no wonder, because we live under the same roof 😉
