History of MFS Photography

About the Company

After 17 years of working in the Photographic Studios of Chicago, Illinois and High Point, North Carolina I decided to start MFS Photography in 1989.

While I did not have a specialty, I prided myself in my ability to provide quality photography, quick turnaround, and exceptional service at an affordable rate for a variety of purposes. From weddings and family reunions to product photography and commercial buildings, I have shot it all time and time again. 

With this experience has come an intimate understanding of what makes a photograph great. Anyone can take a few pictures- if you want something more, you want MFS Photography.


About Michael Smid

I tried the corporate life for a while, but it wasn’t for me. An entrepreneur and a photographer at heart, most of my time is spent on my business or on personal photography projects. 

As the photography industry changes so must I change with it. I am constantly striving to keep up with current trends and practices, such as the use of Lightroom and Photoshop. 

When I am relaxing, I am fishing or spending time with my wife in our Suffolk home. 



Began working in the Photographic Studios of Chicago, Illinois and afterwards High Point, North Carolina.
