This past February we welcomed Sports Illustrated This past February we welcomed Sports Illustrated Swimsuit to Las Terrenas to capture content for their 2020 Swimsuit Issue. In addition to enjoying the beautiful scenery, the group also had an amazing opportunity to connect with the local community where the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit team held an empowerment and photography workshop with the girls of the Politécnico Santo Esteban Rivera school. Simply put, they challenged the girls to find beauty in themselves, each other and the world around them through the power of photography. Thank you to the entire @si_swimsuit team specifically the world renowned photographer Kate Powers (@katepowerslovesyou), @anitamarshall_, @mj_day among many others for your time and compassion.
