Every year in June, I look forward to photographing the annual Turbulence Training Summit in San Diego. For two info-packed days, fitness trainers from around the world attend the TT Summit where they learn from and rub shoulders with some of the top fitness business minds in the industry. This year's TT Summit took place at the Hilton Resort and Spa. It’s at this beautiful location that these smart and savvy trainers challenged themselves with intense workouts on the sand and capitalized on their attendance by forming powerful relationships with industry influencers and rising stars.
In one of the most gorgeous of the Greek islands, the Minoan civilization met its end after a cataclysmic volcanic eruption. The disaster left behind the Santorini caldera, a landmass resembling a waxing crescent moon surrounded by water. A prosperous land that disappeared without a trace and sunk into the sea by the anger of gods, the story of Atlantis has been one of the oldest myths of mankind. Atlantis stands for one of mankind's oldest dreams and myths, the one of the lost paradise. I decided to pay a visit.
