Thanks for visiting! I'm a year-round weather photographer covering St. Louis, the Midwest, the Great Plains and beyond. I've spent weeks on the road for the last 30 years covering all types of extreme weather. My goal is to capture nature's dramatic side, and in doing so, provide visitors to this site with educational information and exciting photography/video about severe storms and extreme weather. I specialize in capturing imagery and video of tornadoes, lightning, St. Louis, MO and the Gateway Arch, storms and all types of extreme weather. I also sell fine art prints of my work via my photo gallery.
