The three laid-back photographers who make up Camp 4 Collective were a hit at the recent Outdoor Photo Expo, where they gave a seminar on video techniques. Tim Kemple, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk, all of them climbers as well as photographers, showed documentaries they have made for National Geographic. The North Face and other clients. Ozturk, an artist turned filmmaker, showed in one of his videos that he is equally devoted to climbing and the latest tech gadgets. He shot it while recovering from a skull fracture and some broken vertebrae he sustained in a ski accident. Though he was “not technically cleared for physical therapy yet,” he went for a climb and he documented the experience while testing the POV.HD camera from V.I.O and the Kessel Crane pocket dolly motion control.
Ozaturk says of this video, “It was fun to experiment with a fresh roll of duct tape, a bit of stiff steel wire and some thin pieces of PVC.”
