Jimmy Chin–National Geographic Filmmaker and North Face Team
If you’ve ever had a pair of skis or climbing shoes on your feet, you’ve probably heard of Jimmy. If Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, backwards and in heels, Jimmy climbs and skis everything the elite athletes of the North Face Extreme team do, backwards and in a harness.
A master visual story-teller and balls-out adventurer, Jimmy has skied off the North Face of Everest, nailed the unclimbed Shark’s Fin on Meru, and tromped more places on the edges of this earth than most of us will cover on its sidewalks.
He extends his artistic sense to advising brands, and has been responsible for ensuring that North Face, Revo and other global marques retain their core audience and appeal while expanding into new markets.
Keeping it real by going big, and nailing the cover shot while he’s at it.
