Lauren Thompson

Lauren Thompson is a New Mexico based landscape and storm photographer with a deep appreciation for wild spaces. Her passion for landscape photography developed in 2017 — borne from her love of hiking and desire to capture earth's natural beauty. A Texas native, Lauren was raised in the heart of Tornado Alley and is no stranger to severe weather. She became fascinated with storm chasing in 2021 after becoming close friends with fellow chaser/photographer Justin Snead. Lauren is rising quickly as an emerging artist in the photography community — three of her storm images were exhibited in the Time Magazine Gallery at NFTNYC 2022 in Manhattan.
