Obama Visit

President Obama must be the most photographed person on the planet, (if not, perhaps the Pope, The Queen or maybe Oprah).

A few weeks ago the President of the United States visited Newark NJ, and I found myself in the third row of the venue, (not my usual spot, outside trying to get in), really thrilling to see the crowd, speeches, security and excitement of the event. I have never seen so many cameras flashing in my life, in a lifetime of photography.

Being there is a different happening, imagine your whole family standing on chairs taking pictures and your grandparents climbing over the row if front of you, trying to shake his hand…
