I always wanted the opportunity to photograph a President but to get an opportunity to photograph the first black President is incredible. President Obama held town hall meetings in the OC and LA and I got credentialed for his LA meeting. The man still still draws a boom of applause and cheers. It was an early day that started at 0430 and dealing with LA traffice during rush hour stunk but it was worth it. The President spoke of his stimulus package and the direction of the economy to include education and healthcare. I got chills listening to the President speak.
