My Bio
Professional self-taught photographer michaelwardieRogers—snapped his first photograph in 1969 at the historic Woodstock Music and Arts Fair, and he has had camera in hand ever since. Viewing the world at large with career stops as a meteorologist, radio & TV personality (KTVF & CBS 13/Fairbanks, Alaska - KMVT/Twin Falls, Idaho, WMDT/Salisbury, MD), professional truck driver by trade, he offers a unique purview on the world around him. His evocative and ever-growing gallery offers a visual triptych of many miles traveled across our nation, from East to West, from the Pacific Northwest to Florida and every spot in between.

Michael’s online gallery (www.michaelwardierogers.com) features 200 striking images that showcase his innate talent combined with his profound skill with the lens. Included are city lifescapes, nature, wild animals, live action, dusk & night images and among the most inspiring scenic pictorials one can imagine. In addition, via his career blog, he offers a rare explanation of the inspiration for his photographs, the technical execution and perspective on where he was and what he was doing in the moment—often laced with humor and a no-holds-bar writing style that is as entertaining as it is informative. He also regularly displays his work on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and 500px.

“This a journey of visualization that explores who I am and how I see life from inside of my tractor trailer, as I make my way from one destination to another,” Michael says. “For example, my presentation of meteorology through pictures gives you a clear and simple understanding about a science that everyone seems to think that they know, yet… weather can't read! My goal is to capture the beauty and malice that Mother Nature dishes out.” In fact, he adds that when taking a picture, music plays in his head—that corresponds with and amplifies the emotion he feels in that moment that he clicks the camera.

michaelwardieRogers’ work is available for purchase online at www.michaelwardierogers.com. His work is on display at Unhinged in Las Vegas, Nevada, The Bridge Academy School and the law firm of Roy, Nielson, Barini-García & Platts in Twin Falls, Idaho. Idaho Magazine also published a feature-length profile featuring his work in a story titled “From Where I Sit.”

Based Las Vegas, Nevada, michaelwardieRogers’ Michael Rogers Gallery specializes in landscape photography, including skyscapes, objects and individuals reacting with nature. His other work includes advertising and commercial work, fashion, beauty, editorial, headshots, events and corporate photography. Michael grew up and graduated from high school in Salisbury, Maryland. He also attended Mississippi State University.

I take photographs, shoot video and sometimes............ people like this stuff. Michael W. Rogers. I am a meteorologist, radio & television personality, photogragher, videographer, and professional truck driver. ​The Michael Rogers Gallery is a journey of visualization that explores who I am. A collection of photographs taken over a period time depicting life how I see it from the inside of a tractor trailer. This..... is my passion.  And although it is the biggest accident that I have ever encountered in my life somehow there is a reason for this and to date I have not a clue.  I hope you like my work.  This is how I view life now.
