What to expect on your workshop
Our mission statement begins with our Client safety as our top priority. We want all our clients to have a safe and thrilling storm chasing experience and leave with captivating imagery, and we strive to keep client safety in focus to successfully accomplish that without exception.
Our storm chase photography workshops are small, limited to 6-8 people per two instructors per vehicle during our chase. This allows for an intimate client/instructor ratio giving each client a personalized experience. We pride our storm chase workshops in the ablility to travel in spacious and clean professionally insured passenger vans and vehicles so all clients have their own comfortable window seat. Again, client comfort and safety is our highest priority!
Throughout the storm chase tour, our workshop team will be educating clients who are interested what weather forecasting tools we use to for our chase and how we use that information to decide on a target area for each day's intended chase parameter. As a client, you will also learn how we use critical assessment on positioning ourselves for the best and safest photo opportunities while allowing a safe and planned exit as the thunderstorm nears our chase parameter.
Once our workshop vehicles are in a safe position, our guides will be readily available to assist you in getting set up to take your photography and what lenses and settings would be most advantageous for your compositions during the storm chase. Clients will also learn how to capture daytime and nighttime lightning, long-exposures and artistic compositions. Our guides will be there to assist and also tutor you in creating photographic panoramas and using effective tools in creating timelapses and exposures of a storm structure in all types of light situations.
As clients, we recommend you to prepare to do a lot of driving as possibilities during our chase day. During each day during clients storm chase photography workshop we will be seeking the best severe weather we can find in Tornado Alley all along the Great Plains. That means the distinct possibility of being in Oklahoma one day, and Colorado, Kansas, Texas or Nebraska the next.
During that commute time in between chases, our workshop will have great activities related to storm chasing available to you during our long hauls. We also have a great opportunity to capture the beautiful spring and summer sights and structures of rural America. Its all part of what makes our workshop journey well worth the effort, especially when you are able to witness the face of an incredible supercell or tornadic storm to accent your portfolio.
While we will obviously be looking for severe weather during the entirety of your workshop, in the possible event there are no storms forecast on a particular day during the chase, our workshop will spend time visiting points of interest, photographing grandscapes, sunrises and sunsets, abstracts and astrophotography in beautiful prairie setttings as well as tutoring on post-processing techniques led by our professional photographer guides.
We look forward to your chase workshop with us!
