2015 was an awesome year thanks to all the clients that trusted our services. We had the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition at Casa de campo. An amazing and talented crew, and of course all the beautiful models present for this job.
Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, located on a sprawling 7,000 acres. It's a sophisticated destination that offers everything from a full-service spa to polo to the top-rated golf course in Latin America to wine and food festivals. And nearby is Altos de Chavon, a replica of a 16th-century Mediterranean village that hosts concerts in a 5,000-seat, ancient Greek-style amphitheater.
SI2016 crew also came with Wevr a virtual reality community and VR media player for aspiring and professional creatives. WEVR collaborates with leaders in the immersive, creative, and technology communities – providing high performance VR playback software for VR producers.
