Our Guest 

Mike Olbinski, Storm Chaser Photographer, Author of Storm Chaser and Emmy Winning Filmmaker

  • Mike Olbinski calls himself a storm-chasing wedding photographer, but filmmaker can also added to the title. He's based out of Phoenix, Arizona, and when he's not shooting weddings both here in the U.S. and internationally, he's chasing storms across the desert southwest and also the Central Plains. Apart from loving still photography of lightning, tornadoes and almost any kind of weather, Mike creates time-lapse films a few times a year. His work has been seen across the world, in commercials, documentaries, magazines and even Thor: The Dark World. He tries to maintain his sanity while doing this full-time and being a husband and father of three beautiful children.
