His broadcast alliance with Live Storms Media and relationship with the Chasing Community as a whole is a very valuable tool that will pay out big for you, our guests, when the X needs to mark the spot. Having grown up in a small town in Mississippi, Erik’s childhood was one that took him into the heart of nature. His experiences as a child have become a pinnacle influence in driving his ultimate passion to see and experience the grandeur of this beautiful planet. His excitement and passion for photography came about as he advanced his expertise in chasing storms. As he was chasing one of the most beautiful structured storms in New Mexico he decided at that moment he was going to strive to show his viewers how beautiful storms can be. This passion for storm photography attributed to other areas of photography as well. He decided that not only are storms something of beauty but also nature in itself. Even though weather is the largest driving factor into his work it’s not only limited to it. Erik’s number one goal is to bring to you, the viewer, the beauty of what the planet has to offer. He lives simply by the motto his aunt instilled in him and that is to “Get out and enjoy life”. Nothing can be truer and hopefully his work can be something you can enjoy in the meantime. He feels photography is an art form and can always be perfected upon. Being his largest critic, Erik strives to improve his photography skills to bring even more of nature’s beauty to you. We are humbled to have Erik on the team this year.
