Michelle Kolchins is a self-taught, Las Vegas-based photographer. She specializes in photojournalistic lifestyle pictures and has had a camera in her hand non-stop for the last twelve years. She has a special eye that sees things that usually remain unnoticed. Her ability to capture emotions and the smallest of details is what sets her apart.
Having gone through every lens attachment out there, she came across the Ztylus case. When asked about this she said, “I was shooting an event and saw someone using the lens. I had to ask what it was, and they showed me what it was capable of and immediately ordered one on the spot and have been using it non-stop every day since. I have people stop me all the time asking what is on the back of my phone, and I can’t stop raving about it.”

From performing at winter markets in small-town Scotland to opening for artists like A Great Big World and Andy Grammer in the rush of California, Robert Gillies has come a long way to be where he is. After moving to the US in 2008 to study at Berklee College of Music, alongside classmates Betty Who and Karmin, Gillies made the move out to California to be closer to the scene he'd admired from afar for so many years.

"I'm a singer-songwriter and general life enthusiast. My whole modus operandi is based around making great things. It doesn't matter what I'm making, I just want to make it great. Ztylus fits seamlessly into my lifestyle as a tool that takes the common act of capturing life in pictures, making it that much more fun and creative."



My name is Ithalu Dominguez I was born in Oaxaca, Mexico. I moved to the United States in 2008. I currently live in Montebello, California. I have always been passionate about photography and painting.

I love to take macro photos because I like the small intricate details that can be overlooked at first sight. I feel motivated to capture nature's tiny masterpieces so everyone can enjoy these beautiful creations as I do. That's one of the many things I love about the Ztylus kit. I use my Ztylus kit for macros and the wide angle for landscapes. I really like how crisp and sharp the macro lens is because it gives me more detailed shots.

Every time I go for a walk, I always bring my Ztylus Revolver 4 in 1 kit because I always find amazing things to capture. I can always count on the Ztylus to get the photo I want.
