Greg Johnson

Professional storm-chaser

Greg Johnson, one of North America’s top professional storm-chasers and severe weather experts, is also an accomplished photographer, speaker, author and workshop leader and recently a television personality with the CMT series, Tornado Hunters.

After graduating from Canada’s renowned Acadia University and founding and building a leading successful communications, marketing and advertising firm from the ground up, Greg decided it was time to devote himself full-time to pursuing his passion for capturing nature’s most beautiful and deadly displays of severe weather.

With over ten years of experience, Johnson enjoys chasing classic prairie thunder and lightning storms, tornados, hurricanes, blizzards, and plans to continue traveling the world year-round to satisfy his appetite for capturing extreme weather.

Using sophisticated weather-tracking technology, his ability to read severe weather patterns and a team of dedicated sidekicks, Greg has put over 200,000 kms on his Tornado Truck, intercepting and documenting hundreds of storms across the United States and Canada since 2011 alone. His recent experiences include documenting and compassionately sharing the aftermath of the massive twisters that devastated Joplin Missouri, Moore Oklahoma and El Reno Oklahoma.

Greg’s skills are now being retained by the outdoor festival industry in order to assist organizers in ensuring their large crowds are kept safe from sudden and severe weather risks. He also lends his extensive knowledge to companies who want to educate their outdoor working crews on severe weather safety and protocol.   

Greg is the author of Blown Away, A year through the lens of The Tornado Hunter, a best seller and gold medal award winner for design.

A firm believer in the ‘Bucket List’ philosophy, Greg’s mission is to inspire others to chase their own passions, while sharing and teaching the lessons he has learned from pursuing his.

When he’s not storm-chasing or speaking, Greg enjoys life at home in Regina, Saskatchewan spending time with his three children, and of course – cheering for his beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders.
