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. To see more, check out the full photo album from the UeliTour.
