From unclimbed alpine towers in Pakistan's Karakoram mountains, to the deserts of west Africa, Jimmy Chin's passion for travel, climbing, skiing, exploration and photography have taken him on break-through expeditions around the world. He is considered one of the most versatile and sought-after photographers of modern climbing expeditions. His exploits include traversing the Chang Tang Plateau in northwestern Tibet with Rick Ridgeway, Conrad Anker and Galen Rowell; shooting video and still photography for National Geographic; and climbing Mount Everest with David Breashears and Ed Viesturs, while shooting documentary video and production stills for a feature Universal Studios film. In the fall of 2006, Chin made his second ascent of Mount Everest and skied from the summit for the first American ski descent. He is the director of the epic climbing feature Meru (Mountainfilm 2015), and the short film Ingrained (Mountainfilm 2018).
