I have primarily set up this page to showcase my photos away from my personal FB page, and to see where it grows from here.. I have a love for nature and what better way to capture my memories than by photographing them and sharing them.. I love pretty much all forms of photography and willing to give anything a go.. I would eventually like to make a successful business out of this. I would love you to join my journey with me and see how far I can go.
Some of my first visits to Warwick and the Southern Downs in the 90’s were during summer when my parents first moved here. I remember taking photos of cloud formations along the range and while I didn’t understand much about what was actually going on in the atmosphere, I knew the clouds were different. They were immense, towering, cumulonimbus thunderstorms and when I developed the first roll of storm cloud photos, I was instantly hooked!
The cloud formations were fascinating and I just had to know what causes them. This eventually brought forth an intense passion for me to document the weather and the world around me. Visual observation was not enough. The camera became my tool and I have spent many years honing the craft of photography, learning the ins and outs in order to capture the beauty and essence of amazing cloud formations and severe weather phenomena across the Darling Downs. I enjoy looking back at the old photos and examining the formations with an understanding of what causes them.
Storm chasing started to open up my eyes to new parts of the country I had never seen and incredible and emotional experiences when forced to see devastation happen in front of me. After the first few Super cells I took the leap and upgraded to DSLR digital photography while learning about the atmosphere and how the world uses energy to balance, create and destroy. Since then I have been on a mission to document my experiences propelled by a love for nature. I do this in order to share how beautiful and horrifying this world can be and hope that it is seen by many.
I have created this photography page on facebook which has gained tremendous momentum over the last year, with a fan base I never thought possible when I started the page and received my first page like. “SE QLD Weather Photography” on facebook has become my unofficial web page to share my storm chasing experiences and weather photos.
