Renan Ozturk

http://www.renanozturk.com

Renan is perhaps best known for his work co-directing and starring in the 2015 Sundance Documentary Audience Award winning film "MERU" - or maybe his co-directing work on the TIFF Award-winning film "SHERPA," creating the National Geographic TV Special Down To Nothing or shooting stills for the National Geographic Magazine itself. Renan is all of these things, as well as a landscape painter, sponsored North Face Climber and co-owner of Camp4. He has also directed and shot commercial and television work for Apple, Yeti, The North Face, ESPN, NBC and Google. Renan thrives when he is both Directing and DP-ing, a camera in his hand, capturing rich human stories with a strong sense of place in the landscapes and cultures that define modern documentary style. He often co-creates with his wife and creative partner Taylor Reese.
