A family picnic themed photo shoot with a huge bear was done by photographer Olga Barantseva. The images illustrate a model and her daughter posing with a predator, but they are having fun and treating him like a cuddly teddy bear. Photo session went viral in Western newspapers, including the Daily Mail and the Sun. The photo shoot seems insane, however, according to the photographer, the bear is trained to be around people and is, in fact, a vegetarian.
Also, the bear already has some modeling experience. In April 2015, the bear, named Stepan, took part in a an anti-hunting campaign photoshoot. On that occasion, he was featured with Russian models Maria Sidorova and Lidia Fetisova.
