Biographical and Professional Information

Jim's professional career began as a filmmaker and writer in Los Angeles. After eight ears of writing everything from TV commercials and music videos to feature articles and motion pictures, he returned to his childhood love of photographing storms. He is now recognized as one of the world's most pioneering and accomplished extreme-weather photographers. Jim has documented record-setting storms for 20 consecutive years, capturing numerous meteorological phenomena, including tornadoes, blizzards, ice storms, and floods. He has documented 18 hurricanes, including Katrina and, most recently, Hurricane Irene.
