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.

Green Bay Packers vs New England Patriots October 2022, Wisconsin Sports Photographer


Here are a few of my favorite photos from covering the Green Bay Packers vs New England Patriots NFL football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Sunday, October 2nd, 2022. The Packers won the game in overtime when Packers kicker Mason Crosby kicked a game-winning field goal. I was in the opposite endzone for the game-winning play, but that ended up being the right spot when Crosby turned around to celebrate the kick.

I’m happy with my photos from the day, with a decent amount of action happening on my end of the field. I think I was able to tell the story of the game. I started my day shooting a few tailgating photos, got the owner of the Patriots, Robert Kraft, talking with Packers President Mark Murphy, Packers receiver Randall Cobb greeting his young family on the sideline, and Packers coach Matt LeFleur talking with Milwaukee Bucks player Pat Connaughton. There was good action throughout the game till the overtime game winning field goal and the subsequent celebration on the field, followed by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers talking with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, Packer running back Aaron Jones celebrating with fans and then Rodgers walking off the field in celebration.

I also felt like I was getting back into the swing of things after missing the last half of last season with my own sidelining injury.

Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears Photos September 2022, Wisconsin Sports Photographer

Here are some of my favorite photos from covering the Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears NFL football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Sunday as a Wisconsin sports photographer. After not so doing well in their season opener last week against the Vikings, the Packers took care of business against the Bears and won 27-10.

This was my first regular season football game after suffering a serious injury last fall that left me watching the second half of last year’s season while recovering from a broken back and pelvis.

Things have also changed for the team I’m on for game coverage. For a ton of years, I always shot from the north end zone at Lambeau and we had runners pick up our media cards after big plays and take them to our editor. This year we made the switch and we are plugging our cameras into an ethernet line on field level that is allowing us to send our image to a remote editor. To be honest I’m not a big fan of doing it this way and it gets me out of the flow of the game. I also shot this game from the visitor’s sideline which didn’t work out that great for me. I’m going to move back to my end zone position next game and see how that works. Here are a few photos that I’m happy with from Sunday night.

A few of my favorite photos from a recent photo shoot of the 37-foot Brabus 900 in Door County, Wisconsin for Manitowoc Marina.   Manitowoc Marina is the Great Lakes dealer for this line of boats.  It was great afternoon and early evening photographing this beautiful and ultra-high performance boat.

Photo Shoot Of The Brabus 900 Black Ops and Brabus Shadow 500 • Midwest Commercial Photographer

A few of my favorite photos from a recent photo shoot of the 37-foot Brabus 900 Black Ops and the 28-foot Brabus Shadow 500 in Chicago, Illinois for Manitowoc Marina. It was important for the client to show that the boats are being used in a large US metropolitan area.  To show that with the Chicago skyline it’s important to show either the John Hancock Building or the Willis Tower.   Manitowoc Marina is the Great Lakes dealer for this line of boats.  It was great morning shooting these beautiful and ultra-high performance boats.

Corporate Environmental Portraits With A Fun And Happy Vibe

Wisconsin Commercial Photographer • I was recently hired by Bay Tek Entertainment to shoot a series of portraits of some of their employees. The Pulaski, Wisconsin based company makes a number of fun ticket redemption type games so they wanted the photos to have a fun happy vibe to them. We used a game room at their corporate office as our environment for the shoot and used items from the games as props. Here are some of my favorites from the environmental portrait project.
