Video and Photography: In Memory of Tim Samaras ~ Capturing Thunder Storms with World's Fastest High Resolution Camera


Tim Samaras passed away in 2013 while chasing a storm, videos of his work. He and his son Paul were killed in the El Reno, Oklahoma tornado along with frequent partner on storm chasing adventures, photographer Carl Young. Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues at National Geographic.

National Geographic wrote, "A week before he died, he submitted what may have been the best, most complete video of a tornado being ‘born,’ in which he describes the formation as it’s happening."
