Jimmy Martinello

Shooting action outside your comfort zone lacks some adventure and, well, some action. Which is why unleashing Jimmy Martinello on a mountain, body of water (or anywhere adventure sports take place...which is everywhere) produces complete adventure images - because he’s all in.

He owns whatever terrain, and whatever sport he’s pursuing. And as a self-taught photographer, brings a clarity to the tension point between the challenge and complete euphoria that reaching mind-blowing mountain tops and paddling into the corners of the world offers.

How does he get outside?

Expedition paddling, chasing steep vertical and first tracks on Coastal mountain ranges, seeking unexplored routes to climb, and taking on the ultimate adventure: camping with his kids.
