On Thursday, July 10, 2014, the Emerica team had a BBQ at Cherry Park in Long Beach, CA to benefit the Action Sports Kids Foundation.
Skateboard legends Andrew Reynolds and Ed Templeton were there and the kids were stoked to be able to meet the team and skate with them. Mike Donelon the Executive Director of ASK Foundation also came to the event. He is pictured with Ameer and Amarr Penn, two of the boys on the ASK Team.
Overall, the vibe at Cherry Park was great. Thanks Emerica for coming out and thanks olloclip for the lens that allowed us to shoot awesome pictures!

It looks like there is a shop located in Mexico City called iShop which might sell it. If you are unable to find it there, I would suggest buying from our website.

"I have been a fan of the Land Rover brand for many years now. To me the brand represents true adventure, that go-anywhere spirit that encourages people to explore their world.
Having owned a few Land Rovers over the years I decided recently to purchase an LR4 HSE. For me, this is the only current Land Rover model that still has connections to the brand’s off-road and adventure roots.
I, like most men, don’t read the instructions to anything. But this time I decided to go much further than reading instructions and actually enroll in the Land Rover Experience school in Carmel, California. The experience was much more than learning how to drive your Land Rover, it was a confidence building journey through some of the most beautiful terrain that Northern California has to offer.
These are some images from my latest automotive adventure. All shots were taken with olloclip lenses including the wide angle, fisheye and telephoto.”

In late March a small group of women decided to go to India with me to learn more about shooting with their iPhones and, more importantly, for an adventure. And, an adventure it was.
We packed up our gear; sturdy shoes, loose clothing, an olloclip of course, back up drives, battery chargers and a projector to view and discuss our work in the evenings. We filled our days with intimate portraits of the locals, visiting their homes, meeting their families, sharing in their spiritual quests and eating their delicious food.
We went out on jeeps to a remote lake for tea at sunset and began shooting the Sheppard’s as they returned at dusk from a day in the fields. For three nights we stayed in tents and wandered into a remote desert celebration where 30 older men wearing different colored turbans had gathered for wedding of someone’s son.
We saw a family of wild camels slowly meandering down the desert jeep road while the silhouette of wild peacocks surrounded us. We drank chai on the streets, went to the Ghats on the Ganges in the early morning as well as going out on a boat for their evening celebration.
We shot drive-by’s, close-ups, landscapes and stunning portraits. We learned to refine our work and tell our individual stories. Several went off to the Taj and eventually we all landed back in our various homes in New Zealand, California, Pennsylvania, Washington DC and Colorado.
The images they captured were spectacular. Using the iPhone allowed for a more intimate connection with the locals, most were welcoming and curious. We used all the different lens of the olloclip, my favorite being the wide angle; others used the telephoto and macro. It was so compelling an experience that I will be offering another India and the iPhone 2015.

I still can’t believe that I was sitting in my kitchen three years ago making a Kickstarter video and now the Olloclip iPhone lens is in every Apple Store worldwide. I have met so many of our Kickstarters at different events and it always brings a smile to my face, it is like meeting an old friend.
