Outrageous Vintage Photos of Wannabe Weathermen

Photographer Michael Jang took these amazing portraits of aspiring weathermen and weatherwomen in 1983 when he was working for a local television station in San Francisco that was holding auditions. Thirty years later, he’s dug them up for our viewing pleasure. Summer Weather is a testament to broad smiles and bad blowouts. Some of these look quite pro. Others? Not so much. Spotted by It’s Nice That, check out some of these amazing portraits in our gallery. Please, do not judge them with mockery or mean guffaws. Look at their gleaming, hope-filled eyes, their ambitious postures, their… trucker hats, priest collars, and very, very thick glasses. Such character! Hey, you gotta dream big.
