Mike Wilson

this is who I am. this is what I do

I admit it. I'm a nerd. About so many things I'm nerdy. I'm a comic book nerd. A history nerd. A trivia nerd. I'm can talk for hours about my favorite bands, about my love of Eric Blair (aka George Orwell... I mean.. how nerdy is that?!?) and Dostoyevsky. Of course I'm a photography nerd. I'll sit and listen to 8 hours of photography podcasts while I'm working at my desk. I will look through women's magazines and stick my head down near the page to peer into the eyes of someone pictured to analyze the catchlight so that I can reverse-engineer how the photo was lit. The point is, I have lots of passions, and so do you.

You're a nerd too. You're just as nerdy as I am. Maybe not about photography or books. But I can find it. Maybe you're the kind of nerd who likes to try and figure out what's in the secret sauce at that restaurant you like to go to. Or maybe you're always on the hunt for the absolute perfect martini. Perhaps you can still remember the names of the members of that band that you liked as a kid that you still secretly like but are afraid to admit it. Maybe you know every player AND the staff of the local sports team.

I want to bring out your inner nerd. Revel in it. Celebrate it. It's who you are, you might as well enjoy it!

Oh, and I love tentacles, but not in that way

"Your photos captured more of the personalities of the subjects than the studio photo of the legislator. It was great to have someone with your perceptive eye"
~ Ron Lamb, Coordinator for the Tukwilla Schools Tech Levy Campaign
You can see the photos I took for this campaign here.

"I have worked with Mike Wilson on several projects and seen him grow before my very eyes into a fantastic digital photographer. He is absolutely one of the most positive, pleasant people I have ever worked with. He can work with any product from a golf ball to a mannequin form. His people skills and imagination help him tremendously within fashion shoots. I am always happy to work with this consummate professional!"
~ Kamie Kahlo, Stylist for Adelita Style

"Mike has been absolutely amazing. Our product, Touchfire, is a transparent keyboard that goes over the screen of an iPad, and is extremely difficult to photograph. Mike's photos brought Touchfire to life, in a way that nobody else is able to do. His mix of technical proficiency and artistic flair is simply awesome. Plus, he's really fun to work with."
~ Steve Isaac, Founder of Touchfire

"Mike is a highly creative, experienced photographer. We hired him to take photos at our wedding in 2010. He was personable and professional with our guests and family members to capture some wonderful memories. I have since followed his photography thru his Nowhereman blog and flickr posts. He truly has a god-given talent to evoke his audience to want to come back to his site to view more of his work. His work is truly beautiful."
