Ben Jacobi is a nature photographer and storm chaser from North Texas. Ben first became interested in severe weather growing up in Iowa Park Texas—right in the heart of Tornado Alley. In 2009 when he was 20 years old, he chased his first storm. Ben is inspired by the power and majesty of the thunderstorms. On his own, he has studied Meteorology to enhance his knowledge of how thunderstorms evolve and behave. Each year he drives hundreds of miles across the southern plains pursing dramatic supercells.
Jacobi is a self-taught photographer who learned his craft through reading books, magazines, internet articles, and experimentation. His work has appeared in galleries around Texas including Amarillo, Wichita Falls, Vernon, and Breckenridge. He has had his work published in Nature's Best Photography Magazine and the Wichita Falls Literature and Art Review.
Ben is currently the co-president of the Red River Photography Club and a member of the Red River Image Cooperative. He has also had memberships with The Wichita Falls Art Association, Kemp Center for the Arts, North American Nature Photography Association, and Texas Photographic Society.
