Bob Smith

Bob has been chasing and photographing severe weather in northern California and southern Oregon for 20 years, and on the Great Plains since 2007. His fascination for thunderstorms started as a child in Arizona where some of his earliest memories were of monsoon thunderstorms and haboobs. When he's not chasing storms, Bob manages wildlife areas for the California Department of Fish and Game in northern California.
