Ray Leichner, Drone Storm Chaser

Ray's love of storms started at a young age. At 12 years old he was using his Dad's camcorder to document thunderstorms in his backyard. To date Ray's aerial photography has been featured on the Weather Channel, Weathernation, CBS, NBC, ABC News, Fox News and most recently The Washington Post. Ray was approached by Eastern PA Weather Authority in the spring of 2017 to be a contributor by producing live feeds of severe weather via the Drone giving his audience storm reports as it occurs. Ray flies a DJI Phantom 3 and Phantom 4 currently.
