Wow…what a day! I photographed the meetings at the Capitol, the Education rally at the Guild Theater and the town hall meeting at the Library Galleria, downtown Sacramento on Sept. 3, 2009. There were only 2 or 3 other photographers besides myself allowed in the capitol offices of Sen. Steinberg and Speaker Bass. and backstage at the theatre.
After the capitol, I drove to the Guild Theatre for the Education Rally with Gov. Schwarzenegger, the Mayor and Secretary. It was great. They also took many questions from the students and spent quite a bit time talking with them.
Lastly I went to the Tskapolous Library Galleria for the Town Hall Meeting with Mayor Johnson and Secretary Arne Duncan. It was fun and interesting and I had a great time playing “press photographer” for the day. I also want to thank my assistant and wonderful photographer, Ian Russell, for joining me at the Town Hall to help out. He got some amazing shots…as usual!!
Oh yes!… it was also my birthday that day so my plans of a day off doing a “spa thingy” went out the window. But how often are you asked to photograph something like this? I figured the massage and pedi could wait.
