Four years ago I surprisingly shot both VP candidate announcements. The first one in Springfield, Illinois was so hot my friend and fellow photographer Kamil fell was struck with heat exhaustion… a far warmer day then when Obama’s announced he was running for the office 18 months earlier. That day was in theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â so cold, I got frost bite in my finger tips.
The press corp found out it McCain had selected Palin on our way to the event. A few days later when we landed on board the campaign plane in Philadelphia, everyone’s phone rang and we found Palin’s Daughter Bristol was pregnant with Levi Johnston’s child.
This year I haven’t seen the vice president, but last week I was an arms length from Ryan.
