When photography becomes a thrill

It sounds like a film. Previous May, Greg Johnson was in El Reno, Oklahoma, and he saw himself inside a 4.2 kilometer long tornado. A truck flew by. A barn exploded. Three people he knew were killed in the storm. Johnson told that the fact that they survived, yeah it is exhilarating, but at the moment it was totally terrifying. It surely defeats wedding photography. Johnson describes his introduction to professional picture taking as horrible.
For several years, he was a hobby shooter, working on yearbook in high school in Ottawa as well as for school newspaper when going to the Acadia University, Nova Scotia. But Greg went professional in the year 2000 when the whole digital technology made his trade much more accessible.
He started the Greg Johnson Photography that in the year 2005 morphed into Regina advertisement agency called Look Matters. But after shooting around two hundred weddings, among other things, he opted for more exciting subject matter. He has been becharmed by extreme weather since a lightning heavy storm between Carlyle and Regina had left him in a ditch. Later, he learned that a tornado had passed through.
This is when he became very interested in taking pictures of storms. He stated that it has to do with the camera and the thrill of getting that snap, that never gets old. They have got few shots frankly that he would put up with the best weather shots in the world. To capture that, there is nothing like it.
