Photographing The President...

I know that I've been a bit quiet on my photo blog lately. It's not that I didn't have anything to talk about... actually, it was quite the opposite. I was pretty busy with several 10 hour, 12 hour and 16 hour work days. It was all work, eat, sleep.

One of the recent photo assignments involved some time with President George W. Bush and Major League Baseball great Tony La Russa. Both photo sessions were only a brief part of my busy days, but they were very enjoyable! Both subjects surprised me with how pleasant, sincere and down-to-earth they were.

Part of the event involved them meeting various VIP's and posing for a photograph with them. Both men seemed happy to be there and gave everyone a welcoming handshake. They also gave a speech and Q&A, and each time it was a message of sticking to your values and beliefs and being humble. It was nice to see two such famous people be so kind and caring. Here are a couple photo out takes from my time with them...
