Our Local Photography Artists ....
Doug Crosby, D.D.S., M.S.
My primary profession is orthodontics. I am in private practice in Richardson, Texas and on faculty of Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas in the orthodontic department. I have been in practice and teaching since 1983.
I first got into photography when my children were growing up, shooting all their sporting events. My passion for sports photography advanced to shooting high school football, college soccer and eventually to shooting Green Bay Packer football games. I enjoy travelling, so nature photography was a natural hobby to pick up. It's common to see me with a backpack, hiking or cycling with camera and lenses in tow. My images have been kept close at home, enjoyed by myself, my family and friends. It is a pleasure to share them with other people.
The camera equipment I carry is a Nikon D3 for sports, Nikon D3X for nature and a wide collection of lenses from wide angle fisheye to 400mm telephoto for sports.
I came into this world May 1, 1951 in Minneapolis Minnesota. I first started taking pictures with my “Brownie Hawkeye” box camera in the fifth grade and fell in love with photography. Although photography is not my primary profession, it is my primary passion (next to my beautiful wife, son, daughter and two grandsons.) I love to capture the special moments in people’s lives -- weddings, birthdays, special events, baby’s first steps, and family portraits. I completed studies with the “New York Institute of Photography”. and have attended many training sessions at "Texas School of Photography" My current project is to complete my CCP certification.
I live in a suburb of Dallas Texas with my wife Deborah and our dog Maddie. I have two grown children and two grandsons which keep me pretty busy taking soccer and basketball pictures!
The equipment I use primarily is a Canon 5D MarkII , and primarily use a Canon 24-105MM Lens plus a variety of other lenses. ( I love my 70-200MM zoom for sports and portraits)
