A "weekend hobby sports photo dad" living in Plano, TX. Over the years as my children played youth sports (primarily volleyball and soccer) I took photos of them and their teams. In later years, I shot college volleyball and baseball. In recent years, I've recently shot MiLB baseball.

Photography has long been a hobby of mine. Starting (I think) in grade 7, I purchased my first SLR (Miranda), a fine camera that I used for many years. I continued to take pictures (film) for many years including the 6 month trip through Europe I did after graduating from University.

Then, I stopped. I didn't do much after I got married. I got enthused again in late '99 when I was part of a online photography start up called EZPrints. Digital was early then but the photography bug was reborn.

As my children got older and into sports, I purchased my first Digital SLR (Canon XT) in March '05, used that until I got my Canon 20D in May '06 and then a Canon 40D in Dec '07 and now a Canon 7D purchased in Oct '10. Over the years, my lens arsenal has increased. I use a 85mm f/1.8 for volleyball with the 135mm f/2 and 70-200 f/2.8 when light and conditions permit. For outdoor soccer, I use the 300 f/2.8 and at night the 70-200 f/2.8 and 135 f/2 (when the lights are real bad). For baseball, the 300 f/2.8 is sweet.

While photography is a hobby, my paying job over the years is as a marketing executive for software companies. I've been involved in sales and marketing roles in the technology world for the last 30+ years including a great time starting EZ Prints (http://ezprints.com) in the late 90's, a pioneer in online digital photo printing. Today, I founded and am principal of Wickpoint - a strategic marketing consulting company focused on executive branding. 

In recent years, a lot of my photography efforts depend on the iPhone, so the DSLR only comes out when sports shots are needed.

Any comments, suggestions can be made to me at anercagr@hotmail.com. Thanks for viewing!

Cheers, Grant
