About Me

Behind the Images from Mike Wise Photography on Vimeo.

On the other side of the camera…

My goal when shooting is for people to relax and be themselves. I want them to forget about the camera…this might only happen for a few seconds, so that is always what I am looking for when I am shooting. Just one second of you being you…
So here is a little about me to help you to know me better so that you will be that much more comfortable when we shoot together…

My family…I love my wife (Wendy) and my two sons (Cole and Blake) very much.

Favorite Foods…Thai, Chinese, Mexican, jalapeño cheddar stuffed duck from Bonges Tavern, anything spicy, jalapeño cheeseburgers from Cone Palace,  …

Favorite Activities…Running…(I regularly run 5ks and have ran a few mini-marathons. A full is a possibility this year), snowboarding (I love going to Boyne up in Michigan, but this year I am heading west to Breckenridge!), and of course creating images!

Favorite places to vacation…Maui, Hawaii; Sedona, Arizona; Disney World, Orlando, Florida, Chicago, St. Louis and Las Vegas

Favorite Music…right now I have a wide variety of music when I go running from U2, Joss Stone, Lady Gaga, Dr. Dre, Adele, Black Eyed Peas, Chris Tomlin, and anything that can get my legs going faster…

Favorite Sport Teams…Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, IU basketball, Duke basketball (don’t hate this is my wife’s team), Notre Dame football, Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs…

A little tidbit…I love tattoos.  Not on me as I would probably pass out, but I love seeing the work that is created by some of these amazing artists!

Bucket List…I want to learn to surf.  I want to go pheasant/duck hunting with Cole.  I want to run a marathon.  I would like to photograph wildlife in a remote location.

Now that you know a little bit about me I would welcome you to share a part of your life with me.  When I look back over the years and the memories of being able to photograph some of the most important moments in people’s lives it really means a lot to me.  Being able to create something that helps people remember the feelings that they had a certain moment is very important to me and some never something I take for granted.
