The F-Stop Swap is a Used Camera Equipment Show and Sale. F-Stop Swap is now in it's 37 year. Ours shows bring buyers and sellers together to buy, sell, trade, and drool over camera equipment.
My name is Gordy Granger (the big guy with the beard), theoretically, I now own and run F-Stop Swap and sell used photo equipment on line. The real brains and backbone behind the show is my wife, Beth (the lady in the grey shirt) with her hard work at the show, It allows me to focus on buying equipment for resale.
Beth and we tried to get or draft one or all of my four children to pitch in and help. Lewis the oldest, and Leah the youngest in the bottom roll. Ed standing next to my wife and Steve standing next to me.
I bought the show in 2006 from Doug Erickson who started the show in 1987. I started selling at the F-Stop Swap in the early 90's.and have been involved with photo equipment sales for close to 50 years. I started helping my father, at his camera store (Village Camera Shop) in the late 1960's. In the 1980's I owned a small business in south Minneapolis. Also in late 1980's Beth and I took in our first foster child, and over the next 20 years parented 9 foster children, three of which we adopted. At times in the 90's we had 5 children in the house.
Since Beth had been working in various social service jobs over the years, I became a stay at home dad in the early 1990's. In order to keep my sanity I sold used camera equipment out of the house, and would go to Used Camera Equipment shows on weekends. Traveling to Chicago, Detroit, Iowa, Omaha, Kansas, and Dallas.
