I am excited to invite our supporters on this year's storm chase.
Live streaming is expected to commence in mid to late April and continue towards mid June 2018

After receiving valuable feedback from our supporters, I aim to live stream both publicly and privately.

On some days my live stream will be accessible to everyone who wishes to join me on the front lines in tornado alley.
These streams will continue until such time as the chase is over. Streaming will happen randomly and will be announced on my Facebook page.

On other days my live stream will only be available to those who have supported me by purchasing at least one photo since 1st July 2017.
Access to the "Supporter LIVE Stream" will be free and is simply a thank you for purchasing my creative work.

As one can imagine there is an extraordinary cost each year in travel, vehicle maintenance, insurance, accommodation, connectivity and technology.
Without your support, live streaming in Australia and the US each year simply could not happen, nor would my expedition to the United States.

If you are a warning coordinator at the National Weather Service, Skywarn Net Co-ordinator or Country/State Emergency Manager, 
we offer immediate access to our Supporter LIVE stream when it's in progress.
