“ANASTASIA” by Lennart Bader

“I think for every photographer, there are shoots that stay in mind. Maybe because the model was so good-looking, maybe because she/he did the perfect poses or expressions that you wanted, maybe because you had the perfect location or light settings or maybe because you just got along pretty well and had a good time.
Combine all those things together and you end up with my shoot with anastasia in bali. The eastern-european mega-babe, living full-time on the beautiful indonesian island, overwhelmed me with her positive energy and captivating attitude from the start.
When we started shooting in a stunning resort at the east coast, i realized quickly that all i had to do was letting her do her thing. In all my shoots i never experienced a model that interacted so well and spontaneously with her environment while showing amazingly authentic and intense expressions and emotions.
I just went with it and kept hitting the shutter. The result is one of my favorite series from bali.
But really, all the credit goes to this astonishing young amazon, there’s just not that much i had to do!”
