About Michael Shedlock:

I am Midwest based freelance photographer with over 60 magazine cover credits for various regional and national publications such as Country Magazine, Midwest Living, Wisconsin Trails Magazine, Browntrout Calendars, the Chicago Tribune Magazine, Lake Superior Magazine, and Michigan Natural Resources. My work has also appeared on various book covers, puzzles, and Sierra Club note cards. I am currently working on a book project on the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and surrounding area.

I live on the Northwest side of Chicago in the suburb of Algonquin, with my wife and best friend, Joanne. We are currently building a new home in the village of Prairie Grove, Illinois. Our new lot is heavily wooded with many mature Oak trees that are over 150 years old. We look forward to designing and photographing various shade gardens on this site.

I am available for assignment work and would especially welcome additional book projects. Please click below to contact me for assignments, stock photography, or to request a print.

Thank you for taking a personal interest.
