Meet Jim Reed, a Photog Who Grabs His Camera When People Run in Fear

Jim Reed is a photographer that does full-time storm chasing. When normal people are running away from things like hurricanes and tornados, Jim Reed grabs his camera, hops into his car, and sets out on a mission of making amazing storm photographs. The above video is a short segment by Good Morning America interviewing him and promoting his book. It sure takes nerve to head into photo shoots not knowing whether you’ll make it out in once piece.

Here’s a video of Reed running up to tornados in his pursuit of photos:

    Ha, that’s funny. This spring, I was told that there was a tornado nearby and I said I didn’t bring my camera. That wasn’t the response they were expecting.
