Leslie Hittmeier is a freelance photographer and filmmaker. She worked as the online editor at Skiing Magazine and managing editor at Teton Gravity Research before joining Never Not Collective (an all female production team). In January 2020, Never Not completed their first film called "Pretty Strong" - which follows eight of the world’s strongest female climbers as they explore new climbing areas, send hard projects, and push the boundaries of the sport and themselves. Storytelling has always been her focus and she has traveled to Chile, Japan, France, Jamaica, and all over the American West to document badass skiers, climbers, and adventurers in their natural habitats. As an obsessed skier and climber herself, she plays and trains in her home mountain range of the Beartooths.
Leslie has had the pleasure of working on a contract and freelance basis with companies like Rivian, Patagonia, The North Face, Teton Gravity Research, Smith Optics, Arc'Teryx, The Ski Journal, Snowboarder Magazine, and The FlyFish Journal.
