2016 MASON BIG BAND BASH

 


Welcome

The Photo Committee provides photographic coverage for all of the Marching Band program events. The events include band camp, rehearsals, football games, MSBA and BOA competitions, the Mason Invitational, Senior events, and both group and individual photos of the Marching Band and Guard. In addition, we provide coverage for the High School concert bands as well as other special events as requested by the directors. Nearly all photos taken appear on the band's own Smugmug website (see links below) and are available for your viewing.


Smugmug Website

Smugmug is a photo website that we use to archive photos and videos of the Mason Bands Program for viewing by students, parents, and friends.  The website is organized by academic school year, with all photos taken for that year contained in event- specific Galleries.  It is very easy to navigate and allows viewers to see the band in a whole new light.  Throughout the season, the photo committee volunteers attempt to obtain photos of every band and guard member.  Some are candid shots during band camp, rehearsals, and football games.  Others are more formal shots taken at competitions.  All images are complimentary from the photo committee volunteers and may be downloaded to your computer without charge.

If you like, you may order professionally produced prints and merchandise directly from the Smugmug site. Complete details and pricing are available on the website.  We highly recommend you browse the items available.  We offer professionally processed photo printing, mounting, framing, and a large assortment of personalized photo merchandise.  ALL proceeds from sales on Smugmug are solely for the benefit of the Mason Band Boosters. 

We recommend you check out the website frequently because photos are added regularly throughout the season.

Awards Banquet Video

Each year the photo committee produces the photo slide show video shown at the end-of-season Awards Banquet. This video runs 10-12 minutes and contains photos (and occasionally some video) of the students as they progress through the Marching Band season. Photos are mostly candid shots of everything from Band Camp through Grand Nationals in Indianapolis. It’s a fun recollection of the experiences our kids have had throughout the year. The video is played at the Awards Ceremony for your viewing, and is available for purchase.

You may order the DVD on the night of the Awards Ceremony or in advance using the form below.  DVD's will be available for pick-up approximately 10 days after the Awards Ceremony.
