David T. Chapman started doing photography as well as storm chasing at the age of 16. He is self-taught in the art of photography and has been pursuing his career professionally since the age of eighteen. He learned at a very young age from his father to appreciate his environment in the surrounding countryside. He enjoys taking photographs of weather phenomena, especially lightning, as well as scenery and nature. David likes to seek out unusual examples of nature such as superior mirages, albino birds, ice caves and various types of naturally created vortexes, ranging in size from dust devils to tornadoes. In the course of his work, David has studied meteorology, ornithology and the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, which can even be seen in all of southern Ontario if the conditions are right. David is also a professional speaker and enjoys entertaining and educating a great crowd.
