From the outside, the life of a model appears about as glamorous as it gets.

But while dieting, weight loss and tantrum throwing are all in a days work, one woman has shown that you should never question their dedication.

Elisabeth Brentano has shown just how fearless models can be if it means they'll get the perfect shot, braving no less than eight tornadoes in just one day of shooting.

Posing for a photoshoot outside Dodge City, Kansas in May last year, Ms Brentano kept her composure as winds and clouds stirred viciously.

Brave model! Elisabeth Brentano fearlessly walks towards the looming storm front during a photoshoot in Dodge City, Kansas in 2015.

Tornado, right ahead! The model partnered up with storm chaser and photographer Mike Mezul II to take the stunning shots in the fact of the storm.

The model was taken into the eye of the storm by storm chaser Mike Mezul II, who said he didn't want to miss the golden opportunity.

'It was the perfect chance to capture the 'Beauty and the Beast' shot,' Mr Mezul said.

'Storms were moving slow in areas where no lives or property were in danger and they were structured perfectly.'

After developing an interest in storms as a youngster, the professional photographer decided to combine his passions.

Pot of gold! The dark black sky and even a rainbow provided an incredibly backdrop for Ms Brentano's photoshoot.

Breathtaking! This incredible cloud formation in the Kansas sky was captured by Mr Mezul during the photoshoot.

Trail of destruction: The thick tornado looms outside of Dodge City, Kansas, while on the far right another one can be seen forming simultaneously.

It has clearly been an inspired choice.

But Mr Mezul's photoshoot with Ms Brentano isn't the only stunning work he's done in the face of a storm.

With more than 16 years in the industry the photographer has captured a number of stunning electrical storms, tornadoes and even the milky way.

However when it comes to shooting storms he insists there's no room for complacency.

Post-storm perfection! After a day where eight tornadoes appeared from the Kansas sky, this stunning rainbow and skyline were captured by Mr Mezul.

Electric feel! The photographer of 16 years also captured this perfect image of lightning striking the ground during the photoshoot.

'These storms can be deadly and the atmosphere can change in the blink of an eye,' Mr Mezul said.

'I have a healthy respect for nature and what these storms are capable of.'

'I believe that if you don't respect them, they are going to kill you.'
