"The greatest moments in photography you will experience, as in life, are directly proportional to the level of commitment you've made and the amount of risk you’ve taken to make them happen."

- Jimmy Chin



Jimmy lives a life of art and adventure, combining a career as a commercial photographer, National Geographic photographer, documentary filmmaker and 14 year veteran of The North Face Athlete Team. He is one of the most sought-after and recognized adventure sports photographers and filmmakers working today. In the past decade, Jimmy has collaborated with, filmed and photographed some of the world's most progressive athletes and explorers while participating in break through expeditions around the planet. He has climbed notable first ascents in the Karakoram, traversed the Chang Tang Plateau in Tibet on foot and skied first descents in the Himalayas. He is one of the few people to ski Mount Everest from the summit and climbed the much-coveted first ascent of the Shark's Fin on Meru.
