  • Mike O'neill is a professional photographer based in Durack, Northern territory

    I have been a storm chaser and lightning photographer since 2003 in Darwin, Australia. Since 2009 I have been a professional storm chaser and from 2010-14 am undertaking lightning research here in the Top End regarding positive upward leader lightning. I am married with one daughter whom support my passion wonderfully through the long hours chaseing, the disappointments and the highs.

    I enjoy taking visitors the to Darwin out storm chasing when they contact me, it gives them a chance to see our vast landscape, the wonderful wet season colors and of course, the storm action.

    My goals for the coming years is to obtain as much data as possible re lightning, whilst at the same time photographing what nature shows in her incredible world. View More...
