Welcome! I’m Beth!

I am a storm chaser and photographer based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and I specialize in weather (particularly bad weather) photography, with other work focusing on landscape, travel, lifestyle, and agricultural projects. I am a proud member of the Prairie Storm Chasers storm chasing team.

I work much of the year as a high school counsellor and transition to full-time storm chasing in July and August. My primary goal in storm chasing is to report my observations to Environment Canada to help improve weather warnings to the public, but after that has been done, I love to capture the beauty and fury of nature’s violent summer weather in a way that is respectful to anyone being impacted by storms as well as helpful for news media and the public who might be looking for information about the storm’s path.

I have been lucky enough to be published as one of the top Canadian Instagrammers in a Canadian Geographic book, as well as featured on Global News, CTV News, Your Morning, and CBC News, amongst others. My photos have been published in local and national newspapers. I have had my work and adventured profiled by ElleCanada, ElleGirl Korea, The Huffington Post, the Weather Network, the Weather Channel, and others.

I’m proud to have been a contributing part of an exciting art project called Turbulent Skies, working with Albertan artist Jay Bigham from Edmonton.

I was also a contributor of timelapse footage on CBC’s “The Nature of Things” special for Canada’s 150th anniversary. The Summer episode of the Wild Canadian Year five-part documentary series features several minutes of my storm timelapse footage, completed over two summers. Following my successful work with Wild Canadian Year, I spent one additional summer season working with two River Run Films’ teams to capture video and timelapse footage for a subsequent miniseries called “Wild Canadian Weather.”

When I’m not chasing storms, I spend time at home with my partner in life and chase partner, Dave Mason, my two cats (Poutine and Fromage), and my books and cross stitching.

A few minutes ago, every tree was excited,
bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling,
tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship.
But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent,
their songs never cease.
