Five Lasting Images from Nemo 

On February 8th, those of us in the Northeast were walloped by a particularly devastating winter storm titled Nemo. While it affected some areas more than others (Hamden, Connecticut got 40 inches of snow to Central Park's 11.4), everyone seemingly experienced some form of the nor'easter's wrath. For some it was an extreme inconvenience, for others it was life threatening (15 deaths were attributed to Nemo). Here are five of the most powerful pictures taken during the blizzard.

Natural vs. Artificial Light: Storm Chasing 

In photography, we often discuss natural vs. artificial lighting when it comes to capturing an image. The above photograph, which is National Geographic's Photo of the Day for September 25th, 2012, is a breathtaking illustration of the two forms of light colliding in a single framed shot. According to the caption, it was taken by Carsten Peter while following storm chaser Tim Samaras. The photo is appropriately titled Storm Chasing.

Hurricane Irene, Meet Big Storm Photographer Jim Edds!

Photo: Jim Edds Do you have a favorite Hurricane Irene story to relate? If you're an East Coaster, you're likely to be talking about this big storm for years to come. And if you're photographer Jim Edds, you probably got out into the thick of it and shot photographs.

Jim falls into several categories: adrenaline junkie, happy professional photographer, and proud graduate of the New York Institute of Photography. His road to photo fulfillment was a rocky one, however. When his research chemist position in the paint industry moved from the perfect beach location in Pensacola, FL, Jim decided not to follow. His eight months of unemployment “convinced me that life is too short not to do what you loved for a living.”

Edds had always enjoyed underwater photography, and he found an Environmental Specialist position with the Department of Environmental Regulation in the Florida Keys. He began to photograph
underwater subjects in earnest while enrolling in his NYIP course. 

“That course was key to my future success as a working Pro. At NYIP they teach you all forms of photography—not just outside.”

Jim now embraces photography for a living, and he chases hurricanes, waterspouts, freediving teams, and extreme weather subjects. His still and video work has been published in a wide range of outlets, including National Geographic, The Weather Channel, ESPN, Outside, Maxim, Discovery Channel, ABC News, Fox News, and The Travel Channel.

Here's a dramatic photo Jim just took of the eye of Hurricane Irene from Hope Town, Bermuda.

The following video includes some of Jim's footage, provided to the National Hurricane Center for this piece on Hurricane Storm Surge.
