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!

Other than my hair not doing very well when I need to wear a hardhat all day, I love to shoot industrial photography.  Here are shots from a recent commercial photography photo shoot I did for a corporate client to help them build a library of images for their web site and social media.    We shot all of these on a working plant floor without interrupting their production.  I think the reason I like these shots best is that I was able to either draw out a little of the personality of the employee or I was able to bring in a graphic element.

Thanks for looking!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the 2016 Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and half marathon on Sunday May 22nd in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Both races start and finish outside Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, and the runners even take a loop around the field on their final mile of the run.  The runners and fans are treated to a party in the parking lot with the staples of a Packers tailgate party:  beer and brats.  I like to tell the story of the day through the emotion of the runners, but I also like looking for unique signs fans display to make the day more fun.  This is the 16th time I’ve covered this race, so I was looking for some different vantage points.  Both races start in waves, so I used a lift to get myself high above the start line.  I think this gave me some different looking shots than I’ve gotten in the past either from ground level or from a ladder.  I also spent more time on the half marathon course after hearing about how a neighborhood came out to support runners by placing sprinklers midway through the race on a particularly hilly part of the course to help them combat the heat.

So here are some of my favorite photos from the races. Thanks for looking!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph the commencement ceremonies for St Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.  This year’s graduation was a little different then ones I’ve covered in the past with it being held outside.  With the regular venue the Schuldes Sports Center undergoing a major renovation the college decide to hold their first outdoor graduation in 40 years.  The outdoor location made for some different and nice angles and moments.  Here are some of my favorite photos for the day.

Thanks for looking!

Here are some of my favorite photos from a healthcare photography project we recently completed for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.  We shot at their locations in the Milwaukee area and Neenah, Wisconsin.  After a stretch of industrial photography projects and March Madness basketball, it was great to collaborate again with Adam Nye, the Creative Supervisor from the hospital.  Matt Ludtke, my lighting assistant on the shoot and hair and makeup stylist, Jai Schmidt helped us keep a very natural and real feel to the photos.  It also helped a great deal that we had some very cute kids to work with and friendly and cooperate nurses that came across great on camera.

I only shoot high school basketball once a year so when I do it I like to overdose on it. Here are my favorite photos for the 2016 Wisconsin Girls State Basketball Championships at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  I shot 15 games in three days.  I always enjoy shooting this tournament because of the display of raw emotion.  At the end of a hard fought NFL football game the players shake hands and its seems like most of them don’t even care if they won or lost.  It’s just another day at the office for them.  When these girls walk off that court they are wearing their emotions on their sleeves.   

Here are some of my favorite photos from the tournament.
