Wilkinson Visual is a collaborative video production team that serves to create compelling multimedia for businesses or non-profit organizations that have roots in the outdoor world. We want to tell the incredible stories, share the life changing adventures, and present the amazing locations that evoke emotion and action on the part of the audience. We are based out of Lexington, Kentucky, with basecamps set up in Colorado and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

For more than ten years Wilkinson Visual has been crafting engaging videos, and is focusing on projects that promote outdoor recreation, locally-focused businesses and food cultivation (did someone say craft beer?) and the conservation of the wild places that make the world an invigorating place to explore.

A few recent, notable projects include:
Producing a documentary about rock climbing development in India
Creating a series of tourism and event videos in Southwest Colorado
A promotional documentary for Nature’s Classroom Adventures
Working on the Michigan Ice Film documentary about ice climbing in the midwest


Mike Wilkinson is originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, whose interests in travel and the outdoors have taken him all over the world. After living in Colorado for a few years, Mike is now based out of Lexington, Kentucky, but still does freelance videography and video editing for productions all over the United States.

When not freelancing or producing video for Wilkinson Visual, Mike is an avid adventure photographer. In the last few years, his images and videos have been noticed by the likes of Red Bull, Backpacker Magazine, Rock & Ice, Climbing Magazine, and Outside Magazine.

Besides creating images and video, Mike also loves to share his knowledge through teaching, and gives presentations at national conferences while also contributing gear reviews and editorials to creative blogs such as Resource Online, Fstoppers.com, and B&H Explora.

Last but not least, Mike occasionally leads backpacking trips for Nature’s Classroom Adventures, a non-profit he helped found whose primary goal is to educate at-risk youth through wilderness experiences.


Wilkinson Visual Team & Collaborators

The larger projects Wilkinson Visual has worked on would not be what they are without the help of some amazingly talented artists, athletes, writers, and friends. Below are just a few of the regular crew and collaborators that pull together frequently for projects.
