I think a monsoon/desert sky photography conference would be a great idea. There is some overlap with regular storm chasers, but I suspect there are also a large number of people who only do monsoon and many others who would like to try, but don't know where to start. I wouldn't call it a chaser conference. Maybe "Southwest Monsoon and Desert Photography Symposium". Gather together some of the best monsoon photographers and maybe add a meteorologist. Emphasis on photography techniques with some desert safety and meteorology. I'm sure one could get a number of photo equipment sponsors. There is certainly enough material that deserves its own conference. I'd suggest Warren Faidley (obviously!) along with Mike Olbinski, Mike Mezeul, Greg McCown , Jason Weingart etc. Such a conference should be scheduled outside of either monsoon season or the typical Plains storm chase season. Maybe in Phoenix.
