“We chase where the weather takes us; we could be in Texas one day, then drive all night and get to Wyoming for the next day.”
James Smart is an Australian photographer whose passion for photographing extreme weather has taken him all over the US in pursuit of skies at their most dramatic. We speak to him about capturing tornadoes on camera.
Please can you tell us a little bit about your journey into photography, did you train as a photographer?
I didn’t study photography at a school, I just picked up a camera and began teaching myself, using a combination of online workshops coupled with hands-on practice in the field.
