Obama visits Reno

President Barack Obama came into town  yesterday to speak at the VFW National Convention, and after a long week of covering celebrity golf it gave me a chance to photograph my first president. My assignment was to cover him arriving at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and leaving after his speech. I was excited to say the least.

It went much better than I expected and I even came away with a few decent photos of him meeting with a small crowd after getting off Air Force One.

    Amazing! These are as good or better than any other press photos I’ve seen of him!
