I have decided to offer one or more storm chasing tours designed for the photographer next Spring, 2013. Please contact me using my contact form if you are interested in being added to my list.
I have been a storm chaser for over 12 years, and I began chasing before the advent of cell phones and GPS. My credentials are equal to any of the best professional chase tours currently in business. I have an MS in Atmospheric Science from the University of Washington, and have published several papers on Severe Weather and Tornado forecasting in major scientific journals. I have personally seen dozens of tornadoes (I don't keep count!) over the past decade. I ran Twister Tours several years ago, but working full time as a professional forecaster with the National Weather Service, I did not have the time to devote to fixed chases every season. However, a number of photographers have convinced me to offer a tour next Spring. The tours will tentatively depart from Denver, Colorado. I also will continue to offer On-Demand chasing for those with a flexible schedule. This is a good opportunity for a high chance at seeing violent weather and tornadoes. On-Demand will be fixed at $200 per day, which will cover all transportation and chasing costs. The 6-10 day tours will be scheduled in the last half of May through the first half of June, and the cost will depend on number of people signed up. I can assure you the cost will be significantly less than any of the current tour company pricing.
Please Contact me with a good email address if you are interested, and I will notify you as soon as my fixed chase dates become finalized.
