About Jimmy Chin: Alpinist and Photographer
Chin started as a climber, but along the way he grew into an award winning, highly-published adventure photographer. In 2009 he returned to his climbing roots with an expedition that took him deep into the Indian Himalaya, to 22,000-foot Mount Meru. The climb was the ultimate test to Chin and his partners. Aiming for a summit atop thousands of feet of sheer granite, their eighteen-day ascent was racked by storm and cold.  
Forced to dig deep into their souls to find the will to continue, they survived on teamwork and trust, and came away with the hardest climb of their careers.As an athlete, Jimmy has appeared in numerous publications, including profiles in National Geographic, Outside, Men’s Journal, People and Powder magazines. As a photographer, Jimmy shoots for a wide range of commercial and editorial clients, including The North Face and National Geographic. Jimmy was recently awarded the Rowell Award for his excellence and breadth in adventure photography and recognized by National Geographic as one of their Emerging Explorers.
