DIRECTOR + ADVENTURER // BOULDER, CO
A professional climber for twenty years, Jon Glassberg began traveling the world climbing rocks up to 5.14 and V14. As a talented photographer and filmmaker he's become one of the Outdoor Industry’s preeminent directors, now traveling the globe to document world-famous athletes during their best—and toughest—moments.
As an insider Jon has the trust and respect of pro-athletes, working on their level to deliver authentic narratives. Shooting from precarious places, where most filmmakers don’t have the skills to go, Jon is able to capture commercial quality images in both the vertical and horizontal worlds. He has directed a variety of award-winning features and international campaigns for The North Face, 37.5 Technology, Marmot, Black Diamond, La Sportiva, Petzl, USA Climbing, Outdoor Research, and Spyder.
Jon enjoys hanging from the side of El Capitan capturing free ascents 3000 ft off the valley floor, climbing in the Rocky Mountains and traveling to the corners of the earth to capture rare moments in sport. He enjoys following personalities and developing deep, authentic stories about talented people doing the coolest stuff out there, and his extensive experience in live-streaming events is unmatched in the outdoor space.
