Like fall in New York, there’s a season that it seems all Arizonans look forward to: monsoon season.

But unlike the Big Apple, monsoon weather is unique to the Southwest, and you never quite know what it will bring.

For a series exploring personal relationships to the monsoon, producer Paige Phelps first introduces us to  Mike Olbinski, just your average wedding photographer-storm chaser.

Olbinski’s claim to fame was filming a dust storm you probably remember, which, serendipitously, happened to coincide with the Internet’s fascination with the word “haboob.”

Olbinski is holding a monsoon photography class this weekend.
