Have you ever dreamed of capturing amazing photos of mother nature's most sensational fireworks but didn't know how to figure out where to be and when to be there? Join us on an exhilarating three-day adventure where you will learn the secrets and the science of where the storms are most likely to be and, as importantly, where you should be in relation to them to capture the best shot. There is nothing quite like the adrenalin rush you experience when you chase a mammoth storm cell and then capture its power.


Our storm chasing workshops, will not only teach you how to shoot lightning during the day and night, but how to shoot it in a scenic environment that allows your composition to tell a story. 



Our programs cover:

  • Advanced planning using weather maps and forecasts to select the best days and times to shoot
  • Location and scene selection to create dramatic, stunning, and unique photos
  • Camera settings to ensure your shots turn out beautifully
  • How to safely track and follow a storm to maximize your opportunity to capture its lightning. 
  • Post-processing in Lightroom, Photoshop
  • Post Processing guide, presets, and actions

We will also be shooting rainbows, sunsets, haboobs, and the Milky Way if possible. You may also have a chance to photograph elusive sprites, red cold plasma lightning above the cumulous storm clouds. Each day and night will bring a new adventure, fantastic photos and stories that last a lifetime. 



Expect to capture old west windmills, ranches, barns, mountain ranges, and fertile valleys as foregrounds as dramatic storm clouds roll into the scene and explode with beautiful lightning. We will photograph iconic fields of Saguaro, Barrel, and Prickly Pear Cactus in perspectives only seen in the southern Arizona high desert.
