“For Action Photographer/Filmmaker, Jimmy Chin, New Challenges lead to New Heights of Creativity” is the title of my interview with Sports Illustrated. See for the full article at Sports Illustrated, The Edge.
Excited to be a spotlighted Instagrammer on the Instagram Blog, where I share my inspiration for my daily posts.
Nice to make an appearance in the new, fully digital magazine, Photography Week.
National Geographic Extreme Photo of the Week featured a photo (taken by Andy Bardon) of me about to ski the Grand Teton.
Stoked to see the sailing and climbing trip to Oman I did with Alex Honnold, Mark Synnott, Renan Ozturk, Hazel Findlay and Mikey Schaefer getting some more love from Men’s Journal. Alex gives a fun description of some of his adventures on our expedition in the spread. Read the original story in National Geographic.
Alex Honnold going for it while deep water soloing in Oman. This photo was taken during our National Geographic trip exploring the rock climbing potential of the Musandam Peninsula of Oman. Alex Honnold, Hazel Findlay, Mark Synnott, Renan Ozturk, Mikey Schaefer and I lived on a sail boat for a few weeks climbing sea cliffs and sailing around in the Gulf of Oman. Kind of a dream trip….
Fresh off the press. Here’s The North Face Summit Series ad for Summer 2014. Alex Honnold, Conrad Anker, Renan Ozturk and I dropped into the Bugaboos of British Columbia for a 3-week alpine rock climbing session. The plan was to fire some of the classics routes in this world famous alpine rock climbing mecca and shoot the new Summit Series campaign for The North Face. Alex, of course, on one of our “rest” days went off and nonchalantly pulled off the single most badass day of soloing ever done in the Bugaboos. It’s always a good time with this crew of friends.
It’s always an honor to be able to shoot for the Geographic. This story was the brainchild of my good friend Mark Synnott. As I’ve written about before, I’ve ended up in some wild places and some fairly crazy situations with Mark. This expedition was no different. Mark, Alex Honnold, Hazel Findlay, Mikey Schaefer, Renan Ozturk and I spent 3 weeks sailing around and exploring the Musandam Peninsula, located at the northern coast of Oman. We found an otherworldly landscape and some incredible climbing on the peninsula’s knife edge seaside cliffs. Read the feature story. See the photo gallery from the story.
