Extreme Photography: Shooting Big Climbs at Yosemite

When you think photography and Yosemite National Park, you think of Ansel Adams shooting Moon and Half DomeorEl Capitan.”

But today we’re thinking about something a little different — about the vertigo-inducing photography of Renan Ozturk. Working on behalf of National Geographic, Ozturk heads to Yosemite to shoot a feature story on the climbing culture that thrives in this valley surrounded by 3000-foot rock walls. The park features extreme A5 climbs that constantly push climbers to new limits, and naturally it takes a special photographer to record the action. How Renan does it? We’ll let him tell the rest of the story … H/T Curiosity Counts
