Former Marine/Professional Hunter
After serving four years in the Marine Corps as an aviation structural mechanic on the CH-53E and CH-46 helicopters, Jim moved back to his home in Western Montana and began to combine his love of the outdoors with cinematography.

Jim's “anything is possible attitude” has helped him win multiple video production awards in a variety of categories.

"Working with Triumph Systems has helped me become a more proficient shooter by being able to engage a target and have instant results. In my line of work putting food on the table means making ethical shots on the animals we pursue and I won't leave that to chance." -Jim Kinsey
When not filming Jim writes feature length articles for Safari Club International, Bowhunter, Rack, Buckmasters, Petersen's Bowhunting, Bowfisher, and Sports Afield magazine. You may also read his articles on the Sportsman Channel's blog.
