ABOUT

ABOUT JAMES SMART
 

 

Born & raised in Melbourne, Australia, James took up photography in 2012 whilst visiting Italy.
 

Landscapes were the main focus once picking up his first Canon DSLR, and has not looked back.

The weather photography came only a year later, deciding to venture to tornado alley in the United States of America.

Not having much luck on the first storm chasing journey, he has returned every year since and has captured
mother nature at her most dangerous.

From breathtaking tornadoes to storm structure which you have to see to believe.

 

After capturing such stunning images from storm chasing, James’ has been published in numerous
magazines & publications around the world including
National Geographic, Australian Photography Magazine & Red Bull.


James is looking forward to the next year in travel & photography.
