Welcome to StormHour’s brand new Print of the Week feature. This is an opportunity for you to obtain exclusive goods while supporting the work of weather photographers and storm-chasers. The platform we are building here helps StormHour’s mission to support these storm-chasers and severe weather photographers.
From today, every Monday we’ll present you one of the most exceptional weather-related photographs that will be available as an exclusive limited print.
We are starting with 100 limited canvas prints of my photograph from 2016, which was the catalyst for StormHour and a personal career change. The story of this photo began with an entry to the Royal Meteorological Society World Weather Photography competition in 2016.
Although ultimately I didn’t win this competition, being chosen in the top twelve has had a significant impact four years later. My photograph appeared as the image for May in the 2017 Royal Meteorological Society calendar. The photo also appeared across media outlets throughout the world including the BBC, the Weather Channel and CBS News.
Since then, I have created StormHour, a business that promotes meteorology and weather photography, running a weekly photography competition in association with The Royal Meteorological Society since July 2016. So far, we have organised over 200 competitions receiving approximately 1,000 entries every month.
I’ve conducted over 130 interviews with meteorologists from across the globe, and am a judge for the Royal Meteorological Society world weather photographer of the year 2020.
For me, it was a life-changing photograph. A passing shower snapped at the perfect time in ideal light which led to a new career path and renewed enthusiasm for an old hobby.
Thank you all for your support!
