My friends call me Tami. I inherited my love of Wildlife and Photography from my Father at a young age. I received my first camera for Christmas when I was 14 yrs old. Like most photographers I feel much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it.
In 2014 I enrolled in Greg Johnson’s (Tornado Hunter) Introductory Photography course. It was an interesting course and he was awesome! My main interests are Extreme Weather, Lightning, Aurora and Long Exposure image capture. I am an Environment Canada CanWarn trained Storm Spotter/Storm Chaser. My husband and I spot storms to help Environment Canada with on the ground truth, we call in reports of hail, lightning, wind damage, funnels and Tornadoes. We provide them with photographs and video so they can get warnings out to people in the path of dangerous storms. Our current chase vehicle is a PT Cruiser. We never know where the storms will take us, but we are always sure that there are plenty of photo opportunities along the way.
I am a member of the Saskatchewan Aurora Hunters on Facebook. We are part of the very large Storm Spotter circuit (#SKstorm on Twitter). As chasers we depend on Twitter, Facebook, Texts & Radar. We surround storms & report back to each other as to what each chaser sees to help keep one another safe. My username on Twitter is “PrairieChicpics” (if anyone wants to follow me!)
I am a business owner in Moose Jaw (Cindy’s Cutting Corner Unisex Salon) being self employed helps me to provide for my family & spend quality time with them and doing the things I love.
My biggest weakness is photo editing. I joined the photo club hoping to learn more from members about post processing, general editing of photo’s. I am currently using Corel PaintShop Pro X6 and have a lot to learn!
The following images are a wonderful representation of Tami’s interests and talent. All images were shot with her EOS Canon Rebel T2I with the Tamron 18-270mm lens.
Thank you, Tami for sharing your passion and images with the membership! We look forward to seeing more of your work during the year!
