Fine Art Photographer Timothy Johnson has been in the photography business for about 30 years. He started as a…More photographer's assistant and eventually opened his own commercial photography studio in 1983 in Elmhurst, Illinois. He continued working in his studio until his kids were grown and out of college. Mr. Johnson remarked, "The digital revolution made commercial photography so boring. I was like a zombie, taking photos of people in front of white backgrounds." He continued: "My kids were done with school, and my wife was retired and I decided it was time to pursue what I really love."
So he packed up, closed the studio in Elmhurst and moved to LaGrange in 2005. When asked what he enjoyed about the area he responded: "We can walk to all the restaurants, we've tried them all." Mr. Johnson now sells his prints online with the ability to customize the size and frame. Look for Timothy Johnson all over Chicaoland, where he will be present at numerous art fairs and shows.
Lowrey Organ Company 825 26th St, La Grange Park, IL60526 On the west side of 26th Street, and down a rather humble driveway, sits a giant in the musical world:…More the Lowrey Organ Company.

One More Cast Fly Shop has been serving fly fishermen in the Chicagoland area since 1977. In 2002, Joseph Meyer…More bought it. The shop offers a variety of fly fishing equipment and classes. Joseph has been fly fishing forever, as he puts it, and it was his mother who got him interested. People think fly fishing is just about trout, he said, but he has photographs of walleye, muskie and other fish caught fly fishing that prove otherwise. Within the shop you'll find a wide variety of rods, flies in all sorts of colors (many of them made on-site), waders and more.
