Decatur High School Band Camp

I photographed band camp for the Decatur High School marching band at Oxford College of Emory University in Oxford for a Three of a Kind photo feature for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday, July 19, 2012. This year, the 90 students that make up the marching band, will be performing a halftime show entitled Spy City with music from James Bond, The Pink Panther and Inspector Gadget. The band has been directed by Megan Williams since 2009.

  1. I was attempting to explain the concept of “marching band” to a Chinese scientist staying at Villa International. These photos helped by showing the students learning their moves, and then practicing with their instruments. I hope to show her the real thing next Friday.
