There are many of us out there who swear by the word “adventure” but how many of us have really bothered to think what is “adventure”. Adventure is not all about the sudden ad-reline rush. It is in fact all about thinking out of the box. If you are looking for some inspiration, you don’t have to look far. National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez, is a man with a mission to photograph the amazing seven natural wonders of the world, with nothing but amazing range of Microsoft devices.
Stephen’s journey commenced with the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. This mammoth natural wonder that is visible from outer space with just mobile phone cameras is no small feat. Let’s have a look at how he managed the unthinkable.
Stephen started his journey with the Surface Pro 3 and researched about the natural wonder using Bing account. The image search feature of Bing came in really handy for Stephen as he used it to pin locations on locales, which he needed to visit in order to complete his project. All the details of this project were shared with the rest of the team using One Note.
Stephen’s next job was to find some local people in Australia, who could act as his guide for the period of ten days. In spite of the time difference Stephen managed to chalk out a schedule for the two of the using Microsoft Office 2016. The online chatting option real tie actually helped them to finalize the plan.
Unlike many photographers who usually carry big camera lens, and equipment, Stephen only carried Microsoft 950 XL, Microsoft Lumia, Surface Pro 3, new Surface Pen, new Surface Type Cover and Microsoft Band 2. This amazing set of gears made Stephen’s load amazingly lightweight which gave him flexibility of movement.
During the trip, Stephen took 1000 pictures every day with the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL models which basically means that he had taken almost 10,000 pictures during the duration of his stay in Australia using the amazing picture capturing capacity of Lumia phones. Stephen used his One Note as a personal diary, where he wrote everything that he did during his stay.
The trip for Stephen is far from getting over. It has in fact started and Stephen would be chasing the Northern lights with Lumia products in the North Pole.
