Nicolaus travels with his wife, Daow to chase storms all across middle-northern US (mostly Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado). The team bases their shoots according to weather reports, and travels to catch the forming storms. The results featured on Stormscapes 2 are some of the most awe-inspiring footage I’ve seen.

Interestingly it is not the strong winds that scare Nicolaus the most, it’s the lightning, and Nicolaus had to stop a few shoots because they could not risk getting hit.
