A Once in a Lifetime Trip

Jamie Johnstone has just finished his first year of University in London and is hoping to pursue a career in the aviation industry after graduating. Along with a passion for aviation, Jamie is an avid traveller who loves exploring new places and meeting different people from different cultures.

With my 1st year at University finished, I decided to give myself a three week break and book a once in a life time trip to Southeast Asia with a couple of friends. We would fly into Bangkok, travel to the islands in The Gulf of Thailand before flying to Singapore where we would catch a bus to Kuala Lumpur, our final stop!

13 hours of flying, and a 3 hour layover in Abu Dhabi later we arrive in Bangkok to a tropical downpour and intense heat, a vast change to the overcast London we left the day before. Bangkok is an incredible city, you can go from beauty of the Grand Palace to racing Tuk-Tuks in the middle of a built up, crowded city in minutes.

After spending 3 nights in Bangkok, we took a 13 hour sleeper train to Surat Thani where we would catch a boat to Koh Samui, a tropical paradise in The Gulf of Thailand with some incredible photography opportunities. For the next 10 days we traveled between Koh Samui, Koh Tao & Koh Phangan and marvelled at the natural beauty of the islands and the cheap price of beer!

Before we knew it our time in Thailand was up and we were catching a flight to Singapore, a modern, clean, efficient city. A far cry from what we had seen in Bangkok earlier in the trip.

After 3 nights exploring Singapore we left for our final stop, Kuala Lumpur, which shared the familiar nonstop buzz of Bangkok. The highlight of KL had to be the Petronas Towers which offered fantastic photography opportunities, especially lit up in all their glory every evening.

Unfortunately Kuala Lumpur meant the end of our thoroughly enjoyable trip, meaning it was back to the reality of working in London for the summer before starting a new year at University and hunting for another incredible holiday!

Can I take a panoramic photo with my IPhone 4 with the 4-1 lens?

Yes! Anything that the iPhone camera can do, you can use it with the olloclip. You can use any camera app including the new app Instagram recently released, Hyperlapse.  We also have our own iPhone and iPad app in the app store.

I Save Bees

Leonardo Scarnici is using his olloclip lenses to change the way people view bees. By capturing vibrant, detailed photographs on his iPhone, Leonardo is altering peoples’ perspectives of bees from one of fear to appreciation for their beauty and hard work. This past month his project, http://bitly.com/natgeoisavebees, was featured by National Geographic’s advisors on their Expedition Granted homepage, for a chance to win $50,000 to create a series of short films about bees.

“Through photos and video captured on olloclip lenses, I help people better understand what bees do for us in the form of beautiful and visual short stories. It is my goal that in addition to spreading awareness and changing people’s perceptions about bees, I want to encourage others to use their mobile devices and olloclip lenses to capture and share their own culture.”
