Who is Ben Claremont?
Hey guys, and welcome to my site!
I’m Ben, founder of Life in 360 and possibly the biggest 360 geek on the planet! My mission is to provide as much value and knowledge possible of everything 360 through the videos, photos and (occasionally) written words i post through my channels!
As a result, every morning I wake up knowing that I get to spend the entire day doing what I love most, and this is what i consider my greatest achievement!
Early days in 360
My life wasn’t always this fun. In fact, as recent as 4 years ago, I was a filmmaker struggling to see a financial future making films, despite the ten years of passion and hard work I had poured into my career.
However, things changed one day while scrolling Instagram when I stumbled across a photo different to anything I had ever seen before.. It was of my favourite camera bloggers Philip Bloom sipping a cocktail at the beach… WHILE SITTING ON HIS OWN PLANET!
I couldn’t get over how cool this effect was! In fact, I was so consumed and fascinated by it that I knew I just had to figure out how to do it myself.
So, with $500 in my bank account and the Theta m15 camera costing a whopping $480 on eBay… I made one of the biggest decisions of my life…
Buy this awesome new camera OR… eat
Can you guess what I did?
My first ever tiny planet photo!
Life In 360
Luckily, my hunger for 360 photography prevailed that day, allowing me to begin my journey on what would eventually lead to more than 80k followers across the various social networks, 3.6 million views on YouTube, and the most popular 360-related blog on the internet!
I’m really proud of and grateful for the success my YouTube channel has brought me. Without my amazing subscribers, I never would have gotten the chance to create a best-selling ebook and video course, work with major international camera brands, or have the opportunity to travel the world sharing my passion with tons of fellow 360 camera geeks.
It's still early days in the 360 industry, so I invite you to let me be your mentor and learn first-hand my best tips & tricks that will get you ahead of the pack!
