Green Bay Photographer Mike Roemer bio picture
  • Wisconsin Editorial and Commercial Photographer Mike Roemer’s blog.

    Hi, I'm Mike Roemer, a commercial and editorial photographer based in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

    I've lived the photography business since childhood, first tagging along during my father's long newspaper photography career before ever carrying my own camera gear. My interest grew as I watched the fascinating process of my dad making black and white images appear while shaking trays of chemicals under the red lights of a developing room.

    My professional career started with a ten-year stint as a newspaper photographer meeting tight deadlines, adapting to curve balls and making the famous and not-so-famous comfortable in front of my lens.

    I returned to Green Bay in the mid-1990s to start my own business, and now regularly travel around the U.S. and internationally for my clients. I enjoy the creative challenge of combining unusual angles, lighting and lens options to produce the perfect commercial image.

    I've won first place awards in Pictures of the Year International, National Press Photographers Best of Photojournalism and National Headliners, along with being a three-time winner in the Pro Football Hall of Fame photo contest.

    I love the variety of projects I get to work on, from healthcare organization and foundation annual reports, high-energy casino and gaming shoots, industrial projects at locations as diverse as cheese manufacturers and steel plants, to corporate culture assignments and documenting the Green Bay Packers.

    Thanks for looking!

Sorry Packers fans, but my blog post from yesterday’s disaster at Lambeau Field isn’t going to make you feel any better.  The Ravens shut out the Packers 23-0.  It was the first time the Packers got shut out in 11 years.  It was sad to see how many fans left mid way through the 4th quarter, but I can’t blame them.  I got a few shots before the game that I like. Not sure what the guy in the Packers pajamas is doing, but it sure looks like he is doing a little stand up sleeping.  I’ve also shot a ton of photos of Frozen Tundra Packers fan Jeff Kahlow over the years, but this might be my favorite.

Not sure what else to say….it was a sad day in Green Bay.  Here are my favorite photos from the game.

Thanks for looking!

With Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers sidelined with an injury the Packers just aren’t as fun to take photos of.  Also with Rodgers on the sideline the Packers just aren’t as good. On Monday night the Detroit Lions took down the Packers 30-17.  It was tough for me to get excited about putting a blog post together from this game, but I gutted it out and put one together.  Here are some of my favorite photos from the game.  

Sorry Packers fans for making you relive the game by looking through these photos.

With Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve due to a broken collarbone and a forecast for rain, it was a tough to get to excited for Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field against the New Orleans Saints.   In truth, I was somewhat excited, but yet very apprehensive to see how Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley would do.  The game started well for the Packers with a couple key defensive turnovers and some good offensive production – thanks to running back Aaron Jones – but then things went south.  In the end, the Packers lost the game 26-17 in backup quarterback Brett Hundley’s first NFL start.  My performance was similar; I caught some good moments, but also missed on a couple of key plays.  Hopefully the Packers and I do better moving forward.  If not, I’ll have plenty of free weekends in January to take up ice fishing.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the game.

Thanks for looking!

A few weeks ago I was asked by Bay Tek Games of Pulaski, Wisconsin to shoot a series of portraits of some of their employees.  Bay Tek Games is a designer and manufacturer of coin-operated games, so they wanted a series of fun portraits. The goal of the portrait project was to create images that showed happy, fun employees in an arcade environment.  Bay Tek Games had just opened an arcade in Pulaski so we used that as our environment.

To get the type of photos that we captured, we had to get a little silly.  This gave our subjects permission to be silly too.  The end result was lots of laughter and full-out, authentic smiles that you see captured in these images. We had a happy client and were able to give them the type of images they wanted.  Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.

Sundays Packers Bengals NFL football game at Lambeau Field had a couple different story lines beyond the football action.  The game was the hottest regular season game ever at Lambeau and the national anthem statements heated up.  With those two story lines and the Packers come from behind overtime win it was an exciting afternoon in Green Bay.  I was happy with my photos and thanks to the gallon or so of water and gatorade I drank I survived the day.

Here are my favorite photos for the Packers 27-24 win.
