Event Photography with Ueli Steck
As a part of the Ueli Tour, presented by the American Alpine Club and Alpina Watches, the legendary Ueli Steck spent the evening of September 10th in Portland with a crowd of about 200 local climbers. Before the main event, a small group of people rallied at the Lucky Labrador Tap Room to meet and drink with The Swiss Machine. From there he headed to the University of Portland to present a slide show and share his experiences on his 82 Summits Challenge and other important climbs. The event was almost two hours of intense video, slideshow, Q&A, and some awesome swag raffles.
I was the volunteer event photographer with the AAC and had a blast meeting and spending the evening with one of my biggest climbing inspirations.
Here are few photos from the evening.
