Photographing six U.S. Presidents has been an awesome experience. I saw President Ronald Reagan while I was in middle school and would later shoot his funeral. President George H.W. Bush was one of my first assignments for the AP while Air Force One landed and took off. The next several years I shot many of the area appearance by President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush, and President Barack Obama from the campaign trail to the White House. President Donald Trump was the most recent addition. I have been part of the Presidential Motorcade as it zipped from the airport and have, been in the press pool, and have seen Air Force One numerous times. Who will be my seventh?
