In keeping with the larger than life image of the Kingfisher Swimsuit Special Calendar, this year the chosen locations for the shoot were none other than the uber luxurious Kingfisher Resorts wildlife lodges in South Africa which include the Imbali Safari Lodge, Hoyo Hoyo Tsoga Lodge, Hamiltons Tented Camp in the stunning wilderness of the Kruger National Park, Mabula Game Lodge near Johannesburg and the breathtaking Cape Milner in Cape Town.
“Every year there is intense pressure of making the calendar bigger and better. And the images, as one can imagine, are also location led. As a photographer I feed off what’s in front of me and South Africa is incredibly beautiful,” says photographer Atul Kasbekar, the creative genius behind the Kingfisher Swimsuit Special.
The Hoyo Hoyo Tsonga Lodge has six African suites set in an un-fenced wilderness which provided the perfect backdrop for these gorgeous, lissome ladies. Since the property is un-fenced, rangers were with them all through, adding to the nail biting delight of a shoot in the bush!
Can’t wait to get our hands on this 2013 edition of the famous calendar!
