My name is James Reynolds, I'm 27 and was born in High Wycombe near London. As you can probably guess from the picture above I am in awe of Mother Nature when she is at her most violent. Every year since 2005 I have made it my aim to capture on film the most extreme and destructive forces of nature.
I graduated in 2006 from Edinburgh University with an MA in Chinese and immediately moved to the Asia Pacific region to be close to where typhoons, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes strike every year. So far my filming expeditions have taken me from coastal Vietnam to the depths of the rural Japan, the wilds of Sumatra in Indonesia to the mega cities of China as well as the typhoon blasted islands of Okinawa and the Philippines.
