Taking 'on the field' photos of the Michigan State University Spartan Marching Band (SMB) since 2004 I am starting my 14th season. Currently this SmugMug site has pictures from 2004 through the galleries for this 2017 season. Be sure to check, in addition, to an overview gallery for each game (those pictures are not in the other sections) to the individual sections. There are also pictures of the Spartan Alumni Band (2008 does not have an 'Alumni' gallery due to weather).

In past years my wife, Jan, has assisted me. Unfortunately she is dealing with cancer which will keep her cameras silent while she battles this dreaded disease. Obviously this could also affect my efforts but I hope not as photographing the Spartan Marching Band is a great passion of mine.

File names are the key to determining the game. As an example GHA breaks as follows: G is the camera used, H is for 2016 (if you look back at 2015 you will see G in this slot) and A is the first 2016 game (Furman University).

2017 Gameday image names begin with:

Bowling Green ... GIA, KIA, LIA
Western Michigan .. GIB, KIB, LIB
Notre Dame ... GIC, KIC, LIC
Iowa .. GID, KID, LID
Michigan .. KIE, LIE
Indiana .. KIF, LIF
Penn State .. KIG, LIG
Maryland ... KIH, LIH

I hope this helps and if you have any questions please email me.
