Tyler Schlitt
Social Media Content Creator & StormTracker

About Tyler Schlitt, Tyler was born and raised in the great state of Missouri. His passion for photography started young around the time he got his first film camera, but at the time he didn't know how to use it. Couple months after getting the film camera, he bought a cell phone. Whether riding in the car or out and about he would practice his skills by taking photos. As he got older he was given a Christmas present from his father Steve, it was a Canon Rebel T3i with two lenses. Tyler has been on several major news networks for his videos and photography. Tyler enjoys traveling as much as he can, from chasing storms in the plains to Aurora then back to the sandy beaches in the south! He believes in taking the camera everywhere you go. You never know what you might find!

Storm Tracker

I am a Texas girl, trying to find my way back home. Currently living in Saint Louis with my Fiancé. I grew up terrified of storms, I watched all the weather movies, and shows kept getting in trouble because I would freak myself out. Eventually in college, once I was able to drive and understand the weather fully, it turned into a big passion. I also do freelancing photography on the side, because I realized, if I can shoot tornadoes, everything should come pretty easy.

Storm Tracker

I have been a storm chaser for about 15 years. Starting in my home State of Missouri. When I moved to Oklahoma I was able to really enjoy storm chasing. In 2014 I created a storm chasing team that covers NE Oklahoma and SE Kansas called Washington County Storm Chasers. My main goal of chasing is to get as much information I can to the public to keep people safe.

I have been storm chasing for 10 years. I love the thrill of the chase. We always meet up before the storms to discuss the weather models. I have met a lot of great storm chasers from all over the country. It is great to see a large line of chasers heading to a storm. We always stop to help after a tornado has hit a town.
