After leaving high school in LA, where he was born and raised, Storm toured as a professional musician for five years before transitioning to photography.

When a friend passed on a lucrative job shooting for Nike, Storm knew right away that this what he’d keep doing. He soon found that the best gigs aren’t usually so easy to come by, and when a friend told him “Don’t get mad, get better”, it stuck.

Storm now has an agent and a substantial portfolio, and he’s working on jobs that give him lots of room for creativity.

“If you can be cool to hang out with for 10 hours,” Storm says, “the 10% of talent is a plus."
