Event Details

Photojournalist and former official White House staff photographer Lawrence Jackson has had the experience of a lifetime with a camera in hand. During a professional career that ranges from shooting news, sports, and features for newspapers and the Associated Press to capturing Barack Obama in the Oval Office, he’s developed a unique way of creating images that tell compelling stories.

Join Lawrence—who now works in news, event, editorial, portrait, and lifestyle photography from his base in D.C.—for an afternoon in which he shares his approach to photography, as well as offers a rare inside look at what it’s like to document daily life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

A presentation focused on his work from his White House years leads into a lively question-and-answer session. It’s a program designed for photographers who work in any form who’d like to expand their creativity and insights, as well as anyone intrigued by the challenge and excitement found in the work of a presidential photographer.
