Hyalite Canyon Viewfinder for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Last week I was assigned to come up with a series of photos for publication on our occasional Viewfinder photo page.

Summer time usually translates to me being busy with photographing weddings and therefore the opportunities for […]

Things have been going great but the combination of my full time job at the newspaper in addition to the full time workload of the weddings has been very successful in keeping me busy these past summer months.

Things have been trucking along here at the newspaper over the month of May. As of late, I’ve found that I’ve been up close and personel with a lot of animals on assignments lately. I adorned a bee keeper suit as I photographed a guy and his bee colonies, I’ve had my head chewed on […]

Magic Tigers – Behind the scenes with Bozeman Magician Jay Owenhouse

Magic Tigers - Behind the scenes with Bozeman Magician Jay Owenhouse

I don’t know about you guys, but when I was a kid I loved seeing the illusions of magicians. I was given a simple paper folding magic trick once and I eagerly would volunteer to make a dollar bill disappear then reappear for anyone willing to appease me. I loved the misdirection and the reactions […]

First, You Must Eat with your Eyes

First, You Must Eat with your Eyes

“Primeiro você deve comer com os olhos” Years ago, I was out to dinner with my Brazilian friend, starving, fork in hand and about to dive into my just-delivered, fancy restaurant dish. Before I could take a bite, she interrupted me with a smile, put a hand on my forearm and repeated a Portuguese phrase. […]

Happy New Year everyone! I ended my 2012 on a high note and have been working hard to keep the momentum going into the new year. As always, I’m looking for ways I can develop and grow in my photography and I hope to improve on some things for the new year. So far so […]


Powder Day at Bridger Bowl Ski Area

Powder Day at Bridger Bowl Ski Area

Montana has been in need of some snow. It’s been a while since we had much and the local ski mountain crew have been holding their breath for a boost. Yesterday they got their wish. I woke up to reports of over 23 inches of snow and it seemed like the whole town called in […]

2012 Best of Mike Greener Photography

What a year! Looking over the photos I made from this past year, I found it difficult to pick favorites. How do you narrow down the very best photos after such an interesting year? For me 2012 was a new beginning. I started my year in a new place after having been hired at the […]

Montana Ballet Company presents The Nutcracker

Montana Ballet Company presents The Nutcracker

My newspaper has this great section in every Sunday newspaper called “Viewfinder”. It’s a full page deticated to displaying photographs of whatever we photographers want. I look at it as a visual study of a random topic where we have free reign to explore and tell that story however we see fit. I use these […]

Photographing Montana State University Gear for Surviving the cold Football Playoffs

About a week ago, I was charged by my editors with coming up with a way to illustrate a story about how Montana State University football fans should prepare for the cold weather playoff games.

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

I have always been jealous of my photographer buddies in Portland, Oregon who get to photograph the muddy, up-and-coming sport of cyclocross. It looks like such a wonderfully goofy social sport event and the photos they would bring back from it made it look like just a blast to photograph. Last weekend I finally got the […]
