Mike Olbinski is a Just stormchasing and wedding photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona. In the summer months he chases the Arizona monsoons and shoots weddings and family portraits the rest of the year. The summers in Arizona bring the monsoon thunderstorms, and they are a blast to chase: “When you’ve lived in Arizona your whole life, you learn to appreciate unusual things like clouds, rain… and weather in general. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been obsessed with weather. I used to watch lightning out my window with my brother when we were little. And now I chase storms.”

"But sometimes one has the sense of a paradoxically asynchronous contemporaneity—the strange tug of more than one time and place." - Raqs Media CollectiveWe find ourselves multi-tasking ourselves into ADHD by our own free will, living our lives hypnotized by the familiar glow.David Abecassis painting whispers quietly to let go of our prescribed overload and go back- to stay back.During that storm and we were cold.All night feeling free and alone.Talking till the morning becomes old.
