Dan Grossman

Even though Dan and his wife Dana met as Brown University undergraduates, it would take another 25 years for them to become devotees of the school’s track and field program. That’s because their daughter Emily became a runner for the Bears in 1994. Another daughter, Joanna, would later serve as the team manager and a USATF certified official. So Dan began snapping photos and realized he could shoot more than just the Brown athletes. So now for years he and his wife have been shooting eight photos a second as volunteers, posting the images at Maple Leaf Photos for the athletes and families to enjoy. That volunteerism is not a surprise to the folks back in Thetford, Vermont, a town that the Grossmans have been serving for 35 years.
