The beginning of June marks the transition from the southern plains to the central high plains as the area with the highest probability for severe weather.  The region with potential includes eastern Colorado, eastern New Mexico, Nebraska, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, and western Iowa. During this time period, post frontal setups can advect moist and unstable air to the eastern plains of Colorado, New Mexico, and as well as  the higher terrain of Nebraska and South Dakota. This sets the stage for incredible supercells and the beautiful storm structure that they produce.
Each day of the tour will have the same goal: get to the best possible location to photograph incredible supercells over the great plains. We will start each day with a weather discussion led by our forecaster. Along the way, we will explain the weather patterns present and how we plan to intercept the storm at the perfect moment. Expect to learn more than you ever thought possible about weather and the conditions of the supercells. We will also conduct photography education sessions explaining in-the-field techniques and dedicated post-processing sessions.
All of our tours start and end in Denver, Colorado. We will provide transportation and lodging for the duration of the tour. Additional information will be sent upon registration.
Lead Forecaster

Steve Saviano

Steve Saviano is the lead forecaster and founder of Skyscape Photo Tours. He is educated in meteorology and has had a life long interest in thunderstorms and their associated phenomena. With over 20 years of storm chasing experience, Steve has developed the ability to consistently place his tour guests in prime position to photograph the spectacular storms that occur across the great plains.

Workshop Leader

Ryan Dyar

Ryan is a professional nature photographer hailing from the Pacific Northwest. In his 15 years of photography, his passion has been photographing unique weather and light over beautiful landscapes across the world. Specializing in teaching photography, he helps tour guests with not only in-depth field technique, but also in creative and distinctive post processing.

We combined experts in two disciplines to fully optimize your experience. Our lead forecaster will track and intercept the storm at the best possible location so that our team of professional photographers can guide you in making the most of the conditions.
Expect to spend a lot of time in the car driving to the best location to photograph the supercells. After the chase has concluded for the day, we will find a nearby hotel for the evening. Because of the highly variable nature of storms, we are not able to accurately predict the exact route of our chase. We have relationships at dozens of hotels along the plains and will find a single occupancy room for you every night.
Above all else, we value safety. Our specialty is getting clients to a position where the storm is most photogenic. Most of the time, that approach would keep us at a greater distance from the storm compared to other chase companies that may drive much closer to a potential tornado.
Transportation, lodging and education are included in the price. We will be coordinating no-host meals as the storms allow and stopping for snacks and beverages several times during the day.
