Roamers: Renan Ozturk
Renan Ozturk’s cutting edge big-wall first ascents, mountain murals, and films have brought him around the globe from the high Himalaya, the jungles of Borneo and deserts of Africa. He is a member of The North Face athlete team. With the advent of next generation lightweight satellite, solar, and DSLR camera technology, Renan has pushed the art of filmmaking in extreme locations. His video “dispatches” produced during expeditions bring the adventure to a world-wide online audience in near real-time. They have been a key storytelling component for clients including The North Face, National Geographic, and Outside Magazine. Through top mountain film festival awards and online viral recognition, Renan’s cinematography and visual storytelling style has emerged as one of the leaders in the outdoor industry. He co-founded Camp 4 Collective, an adventure sports based production company which continues to push the boundaries of expedition storytelling. He lives in Park City, Utah.
