Portfolio & FAQ's

Hello and Welcome! My name is Mike and I'm a semi-professional photographer, specializing mostly in action types of activities such as thrilling stock car races, fast paced hockey and UW college football among other things. I enjoy photographing car shows and events, as well as the various activities during our annual Cheyenne Frontier Days including the cattle drive, parades, rodeos, the Old Fashioned Melodrama and of course, the USAF Thunderbirds.

Once in a while, I'll even throw in some photos from fields trips to somewhere fun or colorful like the Denver Botanic Gardens or the Butterfly Pavilion. Oh yeah! There's the annual Zombiefest too! I'm always looking for something new or different.

I am an official photographer for the Cheyenne Stampede Hockey Team as well as Hiway 92 Raceway Park in Gering, Nebraska. I've been the track photographer for Big Country Speedway and I free-lance for

Are there photos I won't do?

Generally speaking, no. However I will usually avoid weddings and portraits (but just for now) until I feel more confident in providing a great service to my clients. Mostly, I just shoot the things I like to shoot and if you happen to purchase something, it really makes my day!

A Word About Photo Sizes

Smugmug offers the option of ordering your prints in a large variety of dimensions and gives you the ability to crop the image to your specifications. However, keep in mind that there are some limitations due to the dimensions of the original. For example, if you are looking at a 16 x 9 picture, cropping it to an 8 x 10 may not work well. That said, if you see an image that you would like me to take another look at, and possibly change the original dimensions to fit your needs, please let me know!

Buying Prints & Merchandise

You can purchase any image from any page or gallery with the BUY PHOTOS button displayed at the top right of the page. If there is no button, the images aren't for sale. (Look below for more explanation)


3 different print labs are used for prints and merchandise - EZ Prints, Bayphoto and WHCC. I prefer Bayphoto for top-notch color correction & printing. WHCC is a bit more expensive and well suited for weddings and portraits.

Prints include standard sizes from wallet size to 4 x 6 and up to 40 x 60 and larger. You can have prints done in many, many other sizes not listed so if you want a different size let me know. Materials include very high quality photo paper, canvas, GiclĂ©e, ready-to-hang thin-wraps, wood, floating and acrylic metal.

If you purchase your prints from me, you can be assured that you are getting the very best available!

You can also get your favorite images on photo-stickers, postcards, mouse pads, photo panels in two sizes, keepsakes boxes, coffee mugs, photo puzzles, coasters, luggage tags, key tags, refrigerator magnets, ceramic tile mosaics, playining cards, photo aprons and 3 or 4 inch buttons and more!

I also offer 4 x 8 flat cards and 5 x 7 folding cards which are very nice for holidays and other special occasions.

Last, but very cool, is that you can now get a favorite photo on an iPhone or Samsung phone case!

Paying for Photos & Merchandise

Photos and merchandise may be paid for online with a major credit card or through PayPal. All transactions are SSL safe and secured with Smugmug. If you are paying in person directly to me, I will accept cash only unless we agree to other terms in advance.

Shipping Charges

There are shipping charges in addition to the price of the photos and merchandise. These are set by the printing company and not

I don't want to purchase online so how can I order images?

Please use the Contact link above to get in touch with me, and I will do whatever I can to assist you. I may be able to place your order for you with payment to me in advance, or I can personally print on photo paper in most sizes up to 13 x 19 with my Canon Pro-100 professional printer. Photo prices may be slightly higher to cover cost of printing. I may have other options as well so rest assured I will go the extra distance to help you.

Why can't I buy some of the photos on your site?

Some entities such as the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association have strict rules concerning professional photographers. I free-lance for a local news company for the rodeos and they can publish my work, but I am not allowed to sell photos commercially of PRCA events. Similar rules can apply to other venues.  Trust me, if I could sell them I would!

What is Aremel Fine Photography?

It was simply the name I was using previously to starting On The Edge Photos .com. Mostly it was just a way to watermark my pictures in the past. No worries though, they're all mine.
