Lightning Alley
photography adventure

The state of Florida has more lightning strikes per square mile than any other location in North America. It's unique topography allows for daily thunderstorm development during the summer months as boundaries (known as seabreezes) from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico collide. These storms typically occur in the late afternoon and last through sunset and into the evening. 

Graduating from the University of Central Florida, Jason spent his early photography years photographing thunderstorms across the state. 

The cost of transportation and lodging throughout the workshop is included in the price.

What you will learn at the workshop


What you will learn at the workshop


Learn to light your foreground to produce dramatic night images. 

You will leave this workshop with a thorough understanding of what it takes to track down and document Florida seabreeze storms. Jason will teach you everything you need to know, from forecasting where the best storms will form, to positioning yourself around them, successfully capturing your images, and how to bring the images to life with post processing software. 

We will also touch on some other genres of photography throughout the course of the trip, including astrophotography, sunsets, and more. If there happens to be a day of inactive weather, we will still make the most of our time by shooting scenic images and improving your techniques.
