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

    Hi, I'm Mike Roemer, a commercial, corporate, industrial, agriculture 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!

Sunday’s Green Bay Packers game against the Atlanta Falcons was the first game of a new era for the Packers with Joe Philbin at the helm as the interim head coach.  Mike McCarthy was fired as head coach after last Sunday’s lose to the Arizona Cardinals.  The Packers defeated the Falcons 34-20 to put their season record at 5-7-1 and keeping a slim chance of making the playoffs alive.

Here are some of my favorite photos from telling the story of the game.

Here are a few of my favorites from cover the Green Bay Packers vs Arizona Cardinal football game at Leambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin on December 1, 2018.  The Packers are having a down year, but everyone had predicted them to have a bounce back game against the Cardinals, who are having an even more down year then the Packers. That predication was wrong and the Cardinals defeated the Packers 20-17.  The Packers had a chance to push the game in to OT with a last second field goal, but Mason Crosby kick went wide right.  

During the game I tried to get some photos of Packers head coach Mike McCarthy.  With the past two down years McCarthy was said to be on the hot seat.  A few hours after the game we learned that hot seat was red hot and McCarthy was fired after 13 years with a 125-77-2 regular season record and 10-8 in the postseason, including one Super Bowl win.  Usually I can get some shots of McCarthy and Rodgers talking during timeouts while the Packers are on offense, but for some reason that didn’t happen much on Sunday.

I like to brand myself as a “real people in real situations” photographer.  A photo shoot I recently did for County Materials Corporation at a few of their Wisconsin sites was this type of project that I love to work on.  My assistant and I spent a couple of days visiting different sites, checking out various areas and manufacturing processes to create photos to feature their employees.  We went for an available light look and luckily had the type of lighting conditions that allowed us to get our shots without adding much additional lighting which freed up my assistant to shoot some b-roll video .

It’s not always easy to drop in on a person at work and make them comfortable with you taking their photo.  That can be even tougher when it’s a hard working person in a manufacturing situation, but I think over the years of shooting jobs like this I’ve become pretty good at winning people over with just a couple words and a friendly smile.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot.

A few of my photos from covering the President Donald Trump Make American Great Again Rally in Mosinee, Wisconsin.  I was covering the event as a two person team for the Associated Press.  My responsibility was to backup the main photographer that travels with the President.  I needed to be stationary from a riser at the back of the venue to make sure we didn’t miss anything.  Being stationary like that limits the variety of photos you can get, but I was still happy with the images I came away with.

I feel bad for the Green Bay Packers fans with seats in the north end zone.  The Packers have continued to do most of their scoring in the south end zone.  Being that my shooting position for the Packers games is the north end zone I’m looking at most of the scoring action from a 100 yards away.  At times that works out okay like this Monday night when Davante Adams caught his game tying touchdown in the south end zone, but he was facing almost directly to the north so I had maybe a better shot then the photographers shooting from the south.  I also got a great shot of Kevin Kings interception in the north end that stopped a 49ers possible game winning drive.  Being in the north also worked out great for me when Mason Crosby celebrated his game winning field goal facing to the north.

I know the moment I ask the photographer I team up with if he’d like to switch end zones the Packers will start scoring in the north.

Here  are some of my favorite photos from the game!
