Shooting the Leopard Limited Edition
The new year is the perfect opportunity to launch a new limited edition, what do you say? To help you keep those fitness resolution we’re giving you the leopard print! You can choose from two colours – brown if you are a fan of the “original” leopard print, and pink if that’s what goes well with your workout outfits or you want to try something more extravagant.
You can see the pictures of Jarmila Ptacnikova and Yayu Carnon Lopatio wearing both pink and brown not only on the blog today but on our website as well. Do you want to know more about the backstage of the photoshoot? Then keep reading.
As I’ve already mentioned, one of the models was Jarmila Ptacnikova, the owner of Vertigo fitness and quite an expert when it comes to pole dance – she’s the Vice President of the Czech Association of Pole Dance & Fitness, founder and co-organizer of competitions Pole Battle League and Pole STARS. She’s wearing the pink outfit and some of you who have been reading this blog for a while might recognise her from our older posts – there are five pole fitness workouts created by Jarmila.
The second model wearing the brown sports bra and hot pants is beautiful Yayu Carnon Lopatio, instructor at Firefly and Poletime pole studios. She’s also achieved a lot in the pole dance world, to mention just a few of her biggest successes she was second in Pole Battle Field in 2013, she won the Wall Street Cafe Pole Battle League and was a finalist in Polestars.
The pictures were not taken in a jungle but the location of our shoot was the Botanical garden in Prague, the tropical greenhouse Fata Morgana, which was as close to jungle as you can get in Prague :). The girls say it was really hot and humid there but they really enjoyed pole dancing and shooting at the unique location. We even have a sneaky backstage shot for you! You might have already guessed the pictures were taken by our favourite Arina Anira, who is not only an amazing photographer but also a pole dancer so chatting about pole dance during these shoots is our favourite thing to do. By the way the beautiful wooden pole with a stage which perfectly goes with the location was made by Gympole.
And finally, let’s talk about what clothes are included in the limited edition. The brown edition, which you can buy already, includes Nicole top, Terri top (a new top named after Terri Fierce, world pole champion), Vera shorts, Emily shorts and Naomi leggings. The brown edition will be followed by pink and you’ll have a chance to choose from Lisette top, Xenia top, Hot pants, Michelle shorts and Adriana leggings, so don’t forget to check our website!
