Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge -- Would you like to take great photos of a storm? Well, Anita Oakley will talk about why she chases storms, how to prepare for a chase and safety. She will share images from her three years chasing between Texas and South Dakota and cover her equipment and shooting strategy. For those who are interested in trying to chase, she will offer suggestions for getting started. 

Anita Oakley has always loved photography and has been drawn to nature and wildlife. Once her children were grown, she resumed her hobby, took classes, and got serious about it. She is now building a professional reputation, having been published on the Joseph Van Os Photo Safaris website, in Nature Photographer magazine, and on the Nature Photographer Web. She has a good following on Instagram as @anitaophotos.

Business trips took her to India, Australia, Germany, South Africa, and England – and she got hooked on travel. So the logical progression was to marry her passions for photography and travel. She has shot puffins in Iceland, polar bears in Svalbard, cheetahs in Kenya. In 2019 she started chasing severe weather in the Plains states, and she can’t wait for the 2022 chase season.
