Thanks for visiting! I'm a year-round storm chaser and photographer covering St. Louis, the Midwest, the Great Plains and beyond. I've spent weeks on the road for the last 21 years, driving thousands of miles in all types of weather, and plan to do it for as long as I'm able. My goal is to capture nature's dramatic side, and in doing so, provide you with the perfect image for your home, office or business. I specialize in photography of tornadoes, lightning, St. Louis, MO and the Gateway Arch, storms and all types of extreme weather.
