“I’ve been doing storm chasing for 17 years now, started in 1999, at first I was just observing and photographing storms around my home country.

“In the following years my passion took me to the heart of severe weather in Tornado Alley to research the most dangerous storms.

Doing it each year now, goal is to be on the best storms each day and of course at the best time, to get perfectly composed photos and express the rough power of mother nature’s fury.

“Storms are very dangerous but very photogenic at the same time, I love sharing them with my friends and followers.

“My years of experience in storm chasing, high skills in photography and post processing on top of my deep knowledge of meteorology allows me to be one of the best in this field.

“With collected experience I can come to the best spots around the storms and still be in the safe position. Always safety first which takes years to achieve though.
