renan_ozturk The #NEPALiLOVEYOU story continues... I was moved the other day while listening on the phone-- @prettylights accounting his recent experience: "I was in Kathmandu when the recent catastrophic earthquake happened... What I saw and experienced there, before AND after the quake, has changed my life in ways previously unimaginable. Nepal must be rebuilt and needs our help, share photos/stories with the hash tag #NEPALilOVEYOU" -

renan_ozturk The long road home with @taylorfreesolo @freddiewilkinson @baloointhewild, after one of the best @mountainfilm festivals yet. The wild weather brought everyone together, taking in such an array of inspiring films. I'm seriously considering quitting my job to become a cowboy after seeing Audience Choice award winner @unbrandedthefilm. And so blown away to have received the Cinematography award for Down To Nothing with @taylorfreesolo and the Charlie Fowler climbing film award for @merufilm with @jimmy_chin @mochinyc and @conrad_anker. Much love to everyone we got to reconnect with!! 2d

renan_ozturk "What does it take to succeed on a big Alaskan climb?" asked @freddiewilkinson. - "Unbased optimism," replied Jack Tackle, a master practitioner of Alaskan alpinism. -

And from his idyllic scene here in Castle Valley it seems like he has more than just high stakes climbing figured out if life. Thanks for the gourmet yurt cooked dinner, night under the stars, and heartfelt interview for our @sanctityofspace film! #inthespiritofeashburn #roadtomountainfilm @mountainfilm

renan_ozturk Who has been to Nepal and has something to share/tag with #NEPALiLOVEYOU ?? -

Soon we will be putting it all together into a site to help this beloved place but for now just asking folks to share the love. -

This snippet was filmed around Ama Dablam just this past February. We had such a slim chance of pulling off this high altitude aerial shoot but the crew rallied. @shotovercamera @ansonfogel @timkemple @camp4collective @gotham_film_works @freddiewilkinson @thenorthface @fstopgear @pilotbibekkhadka @phaseonephoto #REDdigitalcinema #simirikair #Jibandaai

To know Nepal is to love her. The majesty of her mountains inspires awe and a reassuring sense of perspective. The grace of her people floods your heart with the buoyant certainty that we are all kin. Together, we need to remind the world that in the wake Nepal's recent tragedy, her loveliness remains. Please share your own with #NEPALiLOVEYOU. Now, let's go back. -

renan_ozturk "None of us could have imagined just how much this trip would strip us down. And what raw and hidden parts of ourselves would be out there...vulnerable, exposed to the carnivorous terrain of an uncharted jungle, our deepest selves flung in each others faces with the frigged gusting winds of high snowy ridges." --intro of @mountainfilm blog coming soon by @taylorfreesolo. -

Looking forward to sharing the final @thenorthface @natgeo @camp4collective #MyanmarClimb expedition film 'DOWN TO NOTHING' @mountainfilm with friends and family in a few weeks! -

renan_ozturk Another big quake rocked Nepal as we slept last night. To rebuild over the coming years is going to take a continued effort that I will hope go beyond just this current news/social media pulse. If you haven't donated yet please check out the link in my profile, dzi.org @dzifoundation they are good friends like @jetbutterflies who are on the ground now doing amazing work in the most remote affected areas. 2w

renan_ozturk Really truly the last midnight push on the Myanmar film, as color wizard @dublbz #divinciresolves our wild array of shots from the RED dragon, Sony A7s, 5D, @gopro, @djiglobal and iPhone video. @taylorfreesolo is hangin in there, @baloointhewild on the other hand... #TheDarkArts #FilmmakingIsaSportWhereYouDontSleep [@mountainfilm #worldpremiere soon with @camp4collective @thenorthface @natgeo] 3w

renan_ozturk One of the big perks to going sideways on big traverse climbs is that feeling of being on the summit all day long. -

The power of an image is not to be underestimated. When I was young, the photos of Jeff Lowe on a knife edge ridge like this on Latok 1 in the Himalaya had a huge effect on me. I pretty much sculpted my whole life to work towards the skills and experience that can bring you to such positions. -

renan_ozturk **link in profile** Thanks @hilareeoneill and friends for organizing the latest in Nepal quake relief. -

This photo is from just a few weeks before in the Langtang, a region near the epicenter that was hit extremely hard. Condolences to all those lost in this village including @sherpascinema post production supervisor JayMac's mom and dad. -

Please do what you can to help the people still searching for loved one and for the rebuild of the affected communities.

renan_ozturk Cheers to the indomitable spirit of adventure! It was fun to contribute to day 1 of the @natgeoadventure feed with so many friends and inspiring artist/adventurers today. -

  •   griffisu @renan_ozturk Correct me if I'm wrong but can you even trust an editor with your work, no matter how skilled s/he is? Wouldn't you feel like it should be all about your perspective and feelings? It must be extremely hard to find such an editor, damn your job is much harder than what it looks like on the surface. My respect level = over 9000. I enjoy yours and @timothy_allen 's work much more than others. Your legacies will live on 3w

renan_ozturk Here is our friend Yangee again (see previous post) at the roof of the world. Yesterday she reached her funding goal to rebuild her destroyed home largely due to the support of the @instagram community. Thanks to all those who contributed, looking forward to sharing pics of the rebuild! #smallvictories #thepowerofsocialmedia 4w

This is Yangee, my Sherpa Nepali friend who needs help. She desperately contacted us after her home was destroyed and now is struggling as the sole caretaker of her 80 yr old old grandmother. This fund is legit and is a good option to give $$ to someone directly in need. -

She is not from one of the super well off Sherpa families and after her dad died on Everest has struggled in more ways than one. -

Tag a friend to help and let me know in the comments if you end of contributing. I'll tag contributors back in a post down the line so everyone can see her home rebuilt!
