About Me

“There’s No Business Like Show Business”
(Irving Berlin)

“All the World is a Stage”
(William Shakespeare)

When it comes to the fantasy of show business we are your photographer.
We can take care of all of your professional and personal needs.
Our staff creates images from the stage, to your living room.

If I have added you as a friend, then know that I saw something, very special, in you. Then you should take this is as an opportunity to contact me for a photo session.  I look forward to the opportunity to work with each and everyone of you.

" communicate with the still camera [is] a talent quite separate from any other. To project to a camera, you must have an autoerotic autonomy, a sharp self-conceptualizati​on, even a fetishistic perversity: the camera is a machine you make love to." (Camille Paglia, "Sex, Art, and American Culture)

My name is Mike Smith and I am an award winning international photographer.

Since 1982 I have been published many times in: newspapers, magazines, business publications, and on book covers. My work has been aired on; NBC, CBS, WTTW.

As an international photographer, one of my greatest achievements was to work in China during the early stages of the ‘Open Door Policy’. I was the only still photographer in China, at that time, working alongside the video team that produced the famous “Chicago Bears-Super Bowl Shuffle”. My work achieved recognition from the State of Illinois.

Resident Artist at Gallery 200 ~ West Chicago, IL

I donate my time to non-profit organizations.
