Just as his first print developed in a dim darkroom, so did Majeed Iravani's love for photography. Majeed began his shot-snapping career in 1984, then founded ShotzPerfect Photography in 1990. His two-decade-spanning portfolio is populated with family portraits, wedding parties, and fine-art shots of stoic lighthouses and bridges framed by the gradient of the setting sun. During portrait sessions, Majeed captures clients in a combination of posed and natural positions, such as hugging while staring stonily into the lens.
For the better part of a century, Spartan Stadium has been a cornerstone of San Jose State athletics and university life, hosting more than 300 home football games since 1933, as well as soccer games and concerts packed with more than 30,000 fans. Open during home football games, the Jeff Garcia Hall of Champions pays tribute to more than 300 former athletes and coaches, including pro football stars, golfers, and judo experts. Beyond the football team's keep, the other bastion of SJSU athletics, the Event Center, opened its doors in the late '80s to house men's and women's basketball contests as well as a weight room for students and a take-a-foam-finger, leave-a-foam-finger depository for fans. Spartan athletics maintains a high pedigree throughout their programs, including recent WAC championships for their men's and women's golf teams.
