How do I use AWS sdk definitions for TypeScript?

I am trying to write an SES TypeScript client, using AWS definitions file downloaded from

Here is what I've tried:

/// <reference path="../typings/aws-sdk.d.ts" />
var AWS = require('aws-sdk'); 
var ses:SES = new AWS.SES();

Here is the error that I get:

/usr/local/bin/tsc --sourcemap SesTest.ts
SesTest.ts(3,9): error TS2304: Cannot find name 'SES'.

Process finished with exit code 2

I cannot find any documentation on how to make this work. Please help!
