We are going to change it up this week on The Photographer Show.

In case you didn’t notice, we’re in the middle of an election year. We thought it would be interesting to talk to Rick Friedman about photographing presidential candidates and campaigns.

Meet Rick Friedman

Rick Friedman has been a photojournalist for over four decades. He travels the world photographing for numerous publications, corporations, assignments, film and television productions.

Rick has photographed every U.S. presidential candidate dating back to President Jimmy Carter, to the current campaign. His political photographs have been featured in Time, Newsweek and PDN. Rick has won awards from the American Society of Media Photographers, the National Press Photographers Association and the Boston Press Photographers Association. He has also had 15 images in the juried show “Presidential Hopefuls in the 21st Century” sponsored by the Boston Press Photographers Association.
