Position: Photographer & Storm Chaser
Hometown : Greene, Iowa
Current Residence : Charles City, Iowa
Years Chasing : 2
Sam Lovrien is an active storm chaser and photographer based out of northeast Iowa. Stories of the F5 tornado that landed a direct hit on Charles City back in 1968 are common with locals in the area. That paired with numerous tornado sirens throughout the years and one unforgettable sunset thunderstorm sparked his interest in our weather.
Since then Sam has enjoyed sharing thunderstorm and sunset captures with the Iowa community on his Facebook and Instagram pages. In the off-season, you might find him doing macro photography or snowmobiling when we have snow on the ground.
