Radium Photo was founded in 1909 by Charles Cihak and his brother Joe Cihak on Western Avenue in downtown Muskegon. In the early years, Radium Photo mainly specialized in selling photography equipment, portrait shooting, and eventually school portraits. In 1961, Charles Cihak II bought Radium Photo from his father, continuing in his fathers footsteps and keeping up with the times. While Radium Photo had multiple locations on Western Avenue, in the mid 1970′s, Radium Photo moved to its current location at the corner of Terrace St. and Clay Ave. Currently owned by Charles Cihak III, and managed by Charles Cihak IV, Radium Photo has grown from a once retail/portrait studio to the area’s leading professional photography lab, as well as the premier school portrait and sports photography business in West Michigan. 103 years young, and four generations strong, Radium Photo is the only of its kind in Michigan’s photographic industry.
