2017 Band Montage2017 Band MontageThe 2016-2017 Marching and Concert Bands of West Henderson High School, captured by Pat Shrader, Senior Portrait Photographer.

All of my children play in the band. Claire is in the West Henderson High School Marching Band, where she will serve as Assistant Drum Major next season. Donald plays trumpet in the concert band, and Reese plays trombone in the Rugby Middle School band. Both their mother and I played in the band while we were younger. We are a family of band members. 

Band is a hard activity to photograph. It is a performance fine art of sound, not still photos. Music stands get in the way, and the young men and women sit still during their performance. I've struggled with a way to capture the diversity of the band music program at West Henderson in a still image. However, after some thought, I think I've come up with a winning approach: building a montage of some select shots of this group in their performance. I hope you enjoy this montage!

These montages also work to show different facets of your Senior's personality and activities when created in a senior portrait session. Be sure to give me a call at 828-513-0209 and we can discuss capturing the perfect image that fits you!
