The Tornado Hunter
What kind of person looks for danger, and then dives headfirst into it? Greg Johnson, star of Tornado Hunters, is known for bravely facing nature’s most beautiful and deadly displays of severe weather. One of North America’s top professional storm chasers and severe weather experts, his mission is to inspire others to pursue their own passions, while sharing and teaching the lessons he’s learned from going after his.
Using sophisticated weather-tracking technology, Greg’s ability to read severe weather patterns, and a team of dedicated sidekicks, Greg has put over 200,000 kilometres on his Tornado Truck, intercepting and documenting hundreds of storms across the United States and Canada since 2011 alone. His recent experiences include documenting and compassionately sharing the aftermath of the massive twisters that devastated Joplin Missouri, Moore Oklahoma and El Reno, Oklahoma. Greg’s skills are now being retained by the outdoor festival industry in order to assist organizers in ensuring their large crowds are kept safe from sudden and severe weather risks. He also lends his extensive knowledge to organizations who wish to educate their outdoor working crews on severe weather safety and protocol.
Greg is the author of the Blown Away, A Year through the Lens of The Tornado Hunter, a best seller and gold medal award winner for design. He recently published a second book entitled, Why is the Sky Green? which is already gaining much respect in the photography community.
