i had not yet had a chance to PHOTOGRAPH Barack Obama, ever, until this weekend. here are some photos from the event at UNM’s Johnson Field. i don’t envy the Secret Service’s duty of securing the premises — and checking everyone who comes through the gate. if anyone knows of a good photoessay/story on those folks, definitely pass it on. enjoy
here are a few images put together for someone who wanted to see some of my sports photos in a package:
the Farmington Renaissance Faire was a fun assignment to get for my last day. i got to do video while Daily Times chief photog. Lindsay Pierce covered stills — a luxury allowed by our normally slow Sundays at the paper.
the juggler in the video is definitely a character. let me know what you think.

a very windy day in the Four Corners — which doesn’t help when you have a little video camera without any mic inputs, but…i was impressed by the ability of that little mic to act like a type of shotgun-mic. overall, i’m happy with the way this daily-video turned out, and i was able to get a nice photo of the event to run in the paper to tease to the video online. also shot another assignment, and did some non-video related work, which i wouldn’t be able to do unless i’m stepping up the pace on my daily-video turnaround..yay!
