We recently offered a sneak peek into the latest Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar 2012. Here's what happened behind the scenes!

Behind the glamorous pictures that you see on your screens each year, goes a lot of work. Photographer Atul Kasbekar who has been shooting the calendar each year for a decade now will probably tell you that shooting for the calendar itsn't all haha hehe. It takes hours before you get the shot you want sometimes and the beach sun isn't always most welcoming.

For everyone's who's ogled over the barely-dressed women, you may want to see what goes behind the scenes.

Model Angela Jonsson takes a look at her pictures as Atul Kasbekar looks on.
