Zachary Hargrove is a meteorologist and photographer who resides in Bismarck, North Dakota, with his wife and three children. As a boy, Zachary became fascinated with extreme weather after a tornado nearly struck his home in northern Georgia. While attending college in North Carolina, studying meteorology, he took up the hobby of storm chasing, which led him into the world of photography. He began teaching himself photography theory and technique, aiming to capture the drama of the extreme weather he witnessed in a single frame. After graduating in 2012, Zachary married his college sweetheart and they moved across the country to North Dakota. It was here where he began to take his hobby to a new level and expand it to a new passion: rural exploration and abandoned photography.
