Taking 'on the field' photos of the Michigan State University Spartan Marching Band (SMB) since 2004 I am starting my 15th season. Currently this SmugMug site has pictures from 2004 through the galleries for this 2018 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 continues to battle brain cancer which will keep her cameras silent. 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 GJA breaks as follows: G is the camera used, J is for 2018 (if you look back at 2017 you will see I in this slot) and A is the first 2018 game (Utah State).

2018 Gameday image names begin with:

Utah State …. GJA, KJA, LJA
Central Michigan .. GJB, KJB, LJB
Northwestern … KJC, LJC
University of Michigan …. GJD, KJD, LJD
Purdue … GJE, KJE
Ohio State … GJF, KJF, LJF
Rutgers … GJG, KJG

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