Event description

Description

Concluding the month-long exhibition of his project The Ultra-Endurance Experience, adventure sports photographer Scott Rokis will be at the Peak Design Flagship Store to share his creative vision and approach. During the talk, Scott will discuss methods he uses to pique emotional curiosity. Topics will include:

• Texture
• Dramatic Lighting
• Layering
• Human Experience

Oh yeah, if you’re wanting to know a little about leaving your corporate job, converting to #vanlife and building a photography business from scratch …well, we just dare you to get him started! Pro tip: ask him about his van home – the ironic but aptly named "Patience".

There will be refreshments and an opportunity to meet with other creatives in our community. Everyone is welcome! (Must be 21+ to consume alcohol) Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Artist talk begins at 7:30 p.m.

About Scott
Following a successful 13-year career at General Electric in Business Intelligence, Scott has spent the past 4 years living on the road in the 72 square-foot space of his van. His commitment to living the experience embeds him in the communities he documents and has been the catalyst for the growth of his work. He has been featured in UltraRunning Magazine, Runner’s World, Men’s Health, REI and The New York Times. To see more of his work or hear his podcast, visit his website or Instagram.
