Mike Rathke

Mike Rathke works as a full time photographer at HMNS. He has been into, or least interested in photography since he was old enough to press a shutter button, having learned from his Dad who is wildlife and landscape photographer. Going against all business and entrepreneurial advice to find a niche and stick with it, Mike maintains a weddings and portrait business as well. He’s done sports, fashion, wildlife, landscapes, architectural and all types of portrait photography. This is all great training for being a museum photographer where the requirements include all the forms of photography you can imagine. When he’s not out shooting the Milky Way or a bridal session he’s spending time with his beautiful daughter and wife (probably photographing them too).
