President Obama talking with Vladimir Putin in 2014. Yes, this get together was disclosed to the press. No, they probably weren't talking about adoption.
Thinking of Sen. John McCain as I wakeup to the news. Despite their political differences, I always observed that President Obama and Sen. McCain had a mutual respect for each other.
In 2014, President Obama visited the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Nation during the Cannon Ball Flag Day Powwow.
A congratulatory phone call to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after Congress passed the Affordable Care Act in March 2010. Yes, the Democrats had control of both the House and Senate, and they at least got something done that was beneficial to all Americans, especially the most vulnerable Americans without health insurance.
Today would have been Nelson Mandela's 99th birthday. Here, in 2013, President Obama brought his family to see Mandela's prison cell at Robben Island, South Africa. For the girls, it was a chance to hear first-hand from one of Mandela's fellow inmates about their shared experience. Mandela was unfortunately too ill to receive the family for a visit during their trip.
Not sure if it was okay to stand here to make this picture.
Okay @landonnordeman Here comes the bride. The other frame will be "there goes the bride."
Here comes the bride.

In addition to my talk this weekend at the CortonaOnTheMove photography festival, there is an exhibition of more than 40 photographs from my tenure as President Obama's chief White House photographer. The photographs are displayed alongside the permanent exhibits at The Etruscan Academy Museum of the city of Cortona. The exhibit will be on display until October.
An honor to speak at the CortonaOnTheMove international photography festival this weekend. Alice Gabriner, who was the top White House photo editor for me from 2009-2011, joined me during my presentation.  #cortonaotm
