I taught myself photography with help from my photographer friends. I am still learning. I got my first DSLR in June 2009, took a shot that got published and thought, I can do this stuff. I became a serious hobbyist since then. I became a Getty contributor 2 years later. Not much money, more of a badge of honor.
I will shoot anything, with preference to Nikon as my gear. I have collected quite a few in 2 years. Please remember, great gear helps but they alone won't take great pictures.
You can use my pictures for free for personal use (blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Just ask nicely. All I will ask in return is acknowledgment and a link back.
High-resolution copies and image use for licensing/commercial purposes, posters, prints for gifts, and anything with a commercial value, please contact me.
My images are copyrighted. Stealing is against the law.
Currently living in the far northwest suburb of Chicago for about 16 years with my wife and 2 daughters.
Thanks for looking. Please don't get compelled to comment on my pictures if I commented on yours. I hope you comment because you really like it.
At least one picture a day before 8:00 am CST. That's a promise. Well, I'll try anyway.
Please visit my website.

"topmedic's work is getting better and better each time I return to his stream. His latest works seen on Chicgoist and on Gapers Block Rearview are phenomenal."
