THE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP INSTRUCTORS

TIM BACA-
Hello! My name is Timothy Baca. I've been infatuated with severe weather since a young age but started chasing storms and taking photographs in 2017. I was at home in eastern New Mexico and saw a storm a few miles away. Decided to take a drive and check it out. I ended up running into multiple storm chasers and chase tour groups under this amazing supercell! After that day, I started learning everything I could about storms. My passion for photography evolved out of my desire to document what I saw on the road. I also developed a love for landscape photography as I sought to hone my craft during the months when storm season is inactive.

NICK SELWAY- Born and raised in Lake Stevens, Washington along the Northern Cascade Mountains, he grew a profound appreciation for the natural world at a young age. He spent his childhood traveling and exploring the Pacific Northwest with his family as his love for mother nature grew. He has been photographing for the last 18 years. He'd lived in Kailua Kona, Big Island of Hawaii for the last 14 years where he ran 2 photography galleries "Lava Light Galleries" and did photo tours to the volcano and around the island. From 2018-2022 Nick had a Photography gallery in Breckenridge, CO but after 4 years he wanted to live closer to family and moved to Scottsdale,AZ.He currently travels up to 150 days a year photographing mother nature’s beauty and teaching a variety of photography workshops.
