Michael Gaither III

Hi, I'm Michael Gaither III, CEO of MDGIII. I am a photographer and website designer in Redding, California. I decided to start this business back in 2016 when I noticed that I had a passion and a skill. Those being photography and website design.

Over the course of 4 years, I have learned a lot about how to run my business and how to provide the best quality of service to you. Unlike the big companies, I treat your needs like my personal responsibillities. That means I make it my personal responsibillity to finish your project efficiently and in a timely manner without it costing you too much. I am a hard working person who just wants to help other businesses satisfy their creative needs. Please take a look around my website to see if I am the best fit for your needs. And as always, have a nice rest of your day!

What I specialize in

Skills that I have learned and mastered

Having access to the actual code of a website allows me the freedom to customize it however you would like.

Manual Photography

Once I went manual, I'll never go back. It does take longer, but with more control I am able to capture better images.


One of my favorite pieces of software. I use it to enhance my photos and to create designs.

How I got here

It all started in 8th grade. Before 8th grade I was heavily into band. But my mom told me to "Expand my horizons". So that's exactly what I did. I decided to take a photography class and a web design class in 8th grade. Since then, I have taken numerous classes to hone my skillset that I have today.

Where I am now

I am currently a high school senior at Enterprise. I am taking a AP Computer Science class focused on Java. I enjoy traveling because I could capture more unique photos for everyone to enjoy on my website and because I enjoy being places that I have never been before.

What my plans are

I plan to hone my skillset even further by taking advantage of Shasta College's first 2 years free program. After that, I hope to have built up my business enough so I am able to afford an office location. I hope to obtain the one pictured to the left.
