The morning after I returned home from LA, I met up with Victoria Kraft to shoot an editorial, which had been planned for a while and postponed a couple of times. Christian Akkermann from Le Management was the model, Victoria was responsible for the styling and Michelle Elster did the makeup and hair. I am very happy with the outcome of the series and it was a great team to work with. See more of my portfolio on patrickpankalla.com.

I shot these pictures of Lobat Kia last week and thought I would share them with you. The idea behind shoot was to shoot some lingerie pictures in a non-vulgar way. Lobat works as a hostess at Sunday and that is where I met her. When I have been shooting at that club, she has repeatedly been one of many people that I have taken pictures of. She looked so good on all of them that I one evening asked her if she could be interested in taking some pictures in other circumstances and she said yes. This is the result and I am very satisfied. I have tried to do something different than what I normally do and at the same time do something more uncontrolled. I am a perfectionist, which I think is clearly visible here on the blog. The pictures were taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III, edited in lightroom and photoshop and then photographed from the screen with my iPhone 6 Plus and edited in VSCOcam. It is a bit unorthodox, but I think it gives a cool effect and stand out from everything else I have done so far.
