ψ Litrature (Books by Warren Faidley)

Warren Faidley is an American adventurer, photojournalist, storm chaser and disaster survival expert. He is officially credited as the first, professional storm chasing photojournalist.

Warren and his images have appeared worldwide in National Geographic, The Weather Channel, the BBC, Discovery Channel, CNN, Fox News and many more. His photography has also been used for advertising and promotional work for Paul McCartney, Universal Pictures, Sheryl Crow, MTV, The NFL, NASCAR, Warner Bros., and thousands of books, editorial publications, television and social media outlets. A Google search under his unique name shows an average of over 100,000 references.

Pursuing thousands of individual thunderstorms, tropical cyclones and assorted natural disasters, Warren has survived a mind-numbing number of extreme and deadly situations, including hurricane winds of over 165 mph, tornadoes, lightning bolts, rattle snakes, gunfire, swarming spiders and even angry farmers with rusty pitch forks.

Warren began his pursuits at age 12 when he was carried away and nearly killed by a flash flood. A few weeks later he was riding his bike in to the core of violent dust devils.

In 1997 he captured the first tornado ever shot on motion picture film. He was a consultant for the motion picture Twister and serves as a disaster survival expert for corporate and media interests. He often provides live reports for news media and public safety outlets during extreme storm events. The media often refers to Warren as "America's Top Storm Chaser."

Warren is a graduate of the University of Arizona, a Certified Tactical Combat Medic (EMT), Registered Gemologist, Wildland Firefighter (past) and Pilot.

Warren's private activities include road bike riding (he is a former 25-mile Tour De Tucson and Tour De Phoenix champion), Historical Fencing (He is an instructor and Master of Defense in the SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism) and mineral collecting - with one of the most extensive collections of Bisbee, Arizona minerals in the world.
