Jimmy Jeong started as a documentary and editorial photojournalist living in Alberta. After moving to Manhattan with his partner and enjoying true Brooklyn pizza (yum) they transplanted to the beautiful west coast. Along the way he met some great clients and produced images they both believed in. His commercial and editorial clients span North America and around the world. Which suits Jimmy just fine since he always keeps a packed suitcase.
Jimmy is a founding member of the Rogue Collective. An award-winning Canadian photography collective.
