I've always been scared of storms and have many memories of hiding under the kitchen table as a kid whenever one passed overhead. As I've got older this fear has developed into a fascination of severe weather. Unfortunately in the south of England, where I live, severe storms are pretty rare so I knew I'd have to travel to somewhere like the United States if I was ever going to carry out my life-long dream of photographing a tornado chasing me!

In 2010 me and my boyfriend Tim embarked on our first storm chasing trip. We spent 6 months prior to the trip learning how to forecast, talking to other storm chasers and getting clued up on all the available equipment to both enhance our trip and help keep us safe. 

I've always been a keen photographer and have grown up with a Nikon SLR in my hand. My first being an F45 that I bought from a second hand photography shop on Tottenham Court Road in London whilst at university. 

I’ve since owned a D70s, D90 and am now the proud owner of a Nikon D610 which I mostly use with my Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 - a  lens which loves the storms as much as I do. I also have a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 which gives me the option to zoom into smaller features of the storms and a Sigma 50mm f/2.8 macro lens which I use for capturing the wonderful world of insects – another photographic interest. 

This next season, 2017, will be was my eight year chasing and we are lucky enough to once again be able to spend the entire season on the Plains. We're addicted to the storms and most of the year is spent planning our next trip. I hope you enjoy looking through the images of the storms we've managed to capture so far.

Charitable Giving

We've set up a new fund to donate 10% of all our (net) sales to support victims of severe weather events. Our most recent donation has been to the Disasters Emergency Appeal for the Philippines Typhoon Appeal.

We also highly recommend the Storm Assist project. All their profits go back to those affected by storms. Great place for t-shirts, videos and calendars.
