If you’re looking for daring photographers to follow on Instagram, you’d be hard-pressed to beat this group of storm-chasing shutterbugs. While many of us prefer to stay as far away from severe weather as possible, some people opt instead to track down the action and document it as it unfolds.

Take Chris Sanner, for example, who is part of Tornado Titans, a group of photographers and filmmakers dedicated to cultivating a resource for storm chasers and enthusiasts. Sanner and the rest of the team have chased nearly 400 tornadoes.

Another storm chaser to follow is Mike Oblinski, who we have featured before for his incredible storm time-lapse videos. When Oblinski isn’t chasing storms, he’s shooting in another high-stress situation, weddings!
