Photo Talk: Storm chasers Camille Seaman and Mike Olbinski catch supercells in motion

Camille Seaman chases storms, “big clouds and big ice”. Using both digital and film cameras in different formats, Seaman records astounding views of supercell thunderstorms and polar ice. Check out this TED mini talk (3m 27s) by the intrepid photographer.

Her work has been published in Newsweek, Outside, Zeit Wissen, Men’s Journal. Books include My China and Melting Away: Polar Images, which was published through Fastback Creative Books, a company that she co-founded. In 2008, she was honored with a one-person exhibition, The Last Iceberg, at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC.

While for an animated version (1m 55s) of the build up of a supercell, you can watch the short video below: A Supercell Thunderstorm Over Texas. Video Credit & Copyright: Mike Olbinski; Music: Impact Lento (Kevin MacLeod, Incompetech)

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting Part 2 of LOOK/13 Liverpool Photo Festival Photo Stroll followed by my pick of the shows.
