Photographer Mitch Dobrowner‘s work is what you get when you combine storm chasing photography with fine art photography. His awe-inspiring black-and-white photos show dramatic storms over sweeping landscapes.

Dobrowner counts Ansel Adams as one of his greatest inspirations as a photographer, and his work shares a similar aesthetic to the masterpieces of the late landscape legend.

“I owe much to the great photographers of the past, especially Ansel Adams, for their dedication to the craft,” Dobrowner stated in an interview with PetaPixel back in 2014. “They were the ones that inspired me in my late teens. Their dedication, determination, craftsmanship and vision still inspire me. Though I have never met them, they helped me determine the course my life would take.

“The first time I saw the work of either Ansel Adams or Minor White I was floored. It may sound a bit cliché, but the images left a major mark on my life. And even today when I look and a great Ansel Adams print or book my world turns upside down again.”

After becoming addicted to photography early in life, Dobrowner stopped taking pictures after getting married, having 3 children, and launching a design studio.

“The tasks of running a business and raising a family took a priority to Photography. During that time I stopped taking pictures,” the photographer states.

Dobrowner finally picked up a camera again in 2005, and since then, he has been on a mission “to create images that help evoke how I see our amazing planet.”
