About

Mike Wilson is a freelance photographer/videographer and social media manager who currently tours with musical acts, Third Eye Blind and Mayday Parade. His love for photography began while operating the photo department at the University of South Florida’s student run newspaper, The Oracle, covering festivals like Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, Lollapalloza, and major touring acts swinging through the Tampa area. Moving on to freelance for Creative Loafing, Wilson was given the opportunity to tour with friends and Atlanta based pop-punk act, Cartel as their Tour/Merchandise Manager and photographer. It was then that he knew his passion was in documenting musicians on the road. After several years of touring with Cartel, Wilson began working with Mayday Parade where he began incorporating videography to his skillset. Today, Wilson continues to document every aspect of life in a touring band as the official photographer/videographer and social media manager for major touring acts, Third Eye Blind and Mayday Parade. As their photographer/videographer it is his job to ensure that fans feel the passion of each musician on stage and get a glimpse of life behind the scenes. He showcases this by utilizing each piece of content strategically on the artists’ social media platforms. While off the road, Wilson freelances with Getty Images as their Field Editor in the South Florida area.
