jimmy_chin Pretty excited to finally share @merufilm this evening at #Sundance Film Festival for it’s world premiere. I am forever grateful for the friends and family that stood by me through it all....both the climb and the film. This film is about a lot of things, but friendship is at the core. Thank you @conrad_anker and @renan_ozturk for the incredible journey and @mochinyc for picking up the pieces and taking this film to the next level. The film is dedicated to those we’ve loved and lost in the mountains....Onward and upward.... @sundanceinstitute 2d

Photography is an incredible vehicle to experience the world through because you never know where it will take you. It was great to end last year shooting with @justintimberlake. I love music and can appreciate an incredible performer and musician in any genre. I consider JT one of the most talented performers of his generation. I’ve always photographed people who are passionate about what they do and are always exploring the outside edge of their potential. JT is no different and not unlike most of the world class athletes I’ve worked with in the past, albeit in a very different space. I’ve known JT for a few years. He is down to earth, hyper creative, cares deeply about his community of friends and fans and truly interested in pushing the limits of his performances and music. It was an honor to get full access to shoot the last concert of his 20/20 Experience tour. After over a year on the road and a crushing 100+ stop tour, he still brought down the house at the end of the concert. It was an incredible show. Big thanks to @justintimberlake @jessicabiel @shan_banan
I'll share a series from the shoot over the week. Hope you enjoy them…J

jimmy_chin Very excited to be partnering with @harrys this year. Here’s one from the latest campaign I shot for them. This whole shoot and partnership started out of a hilarious late night party conversation w founder Jeff Raider. Seems like some of the best things come from random serendipitous gatherings. (On location w #davebarnett and @andy_bardon) 4d

jimmy_chin I don't normally post photos like this but when @stevemccurryofficial offers to take your selfie for you w these legends, you kind of have to post it....Hanging w @johnstanmeyer and @davidalanharvey, two giants of photography. Still riding the wave of comraderie, inspiration, awe and hilarity from the annual @natgeo photo seminar. Casual conversations bounced from stories of photographing the pope in the Vatican to orcas off the Norwegian coast to the plight of refugees pouring out of Syria and just about everything in between. Truly an incredible family to be a part of. @thephotosociety 1w

jimmy_chin The @natgeo Photography Seminar is always the most inspirational event of the year for me. The collective photographic brain trust in the house is mind boggling. Humbled to share the stage yesterday w some wonderful artists (@endia_beal pictured) and photographers. Big thanks and appreciation goes out to @natgeo and all the incredible photographers.... @johnstanmeyer @dguttenfelder @davidalanharvey @daviddoubilet @paulnicklen @irablockphoto @yamashitaphoto @brianskerry @argonautphoto @coryrichards @sadiequarrier @roseleen @chenpamela @kengeiger @jimrichardsonng @timlaman @shonephoto @salvarezphoto @amivitale @paleyphoto @franslanting @geosteinmetz @jodicobbphoto 1w

The Sacred Himalayan Landscape is a trans boundary conservation area linking parks in Nepal to India and into Bhutan. The area covers 9.5 million acres and includes five million people who speak 40 different languages. It is part of the @wwf initiative that taps into the spiritual beliefs and conservation ethics of the local communities to restore critical habitats and protect endangered species such as the snow leopard. Pictured, the moon rises over Basecamp and an unnamed peak in the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area - part of the SHL. A glimmer of hope in a messy world.
#WWF @borrowlenses ----------------------------------------------------------- Occasionally I am asked to do a shoot during a stretch of time I’ve already been booked. When that happens, I’ll often turn to my friend and long-time collaborator Dirk Collins. Dirk and I have worked together on a few big high stakes projects in the past - shooting a ski descent of the Grand Teton, ski BASE jumping in Baffin Island for Pirelli tires and he was also recently my DP on the SquareSpace spot with Alex Honnold climbing Heaven in Yosemite. If I have to pick one guy for a heavy remote high stakes mission, it's likely going to be Dirk.

So, the project.....I had been talking to Jon Miceler, Managing Director of the Eastern Himalayas Program and Director of the Mainland Asia Program for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), for several years about collaborating on a snow leopard project. A few months ago, Jon finally called to start filming a piece about the Snow Leopards in Nepal. Unfortunately I was booked, but I was able to send Dirk in my stead. He just returned from the mission and wrote a great blog piece about the first portion of the shoot. Link is in my profile.

jimmy_chin The boys are making progress! @kjorgeson sent pitch 15 yesterday and @tommycaldwell has pulled up to Wino Tower having climbed the last couple 5.13 pitches of the route. Things are looking good for the team....but it's never over til it's over. Send it boys! (Photo of @kjorgeson shot on assignment for @natgeo a few years ago on a previous attempt on the route.) 2w

jimmy_chin All eyes are on @tommycaldwell and @kjorgeson right now as they battle through their 6+ year project of free climbing the monstrous Dawn Wall on El Capitan in #Yosemite. They've both finally freed the crux 5.14+ traverse pitch (as seen here during a previous attempt) and are pushing onto the upper pitches. Give them a follow and wish them luck....It will be one for the books. Shot on assignment for @natgeo @thephotosociety 3w
