Info: Our guest is New York Times staff photographer Doug Mills. He discusses his recent meeting with White House press secretary Jay Carney. Mills and other colleagues from the White House Correspondents Association have complained about being limited in their access to photograph the president. He points out that the official White House photographer, Pete Souza, has unlimited access and follows President Obama “everywhere.” Mills expresses hope that he and others will be granted more behind the scenes access in the future. He presents photographs taken throughout 2013, including events on Capitol Hill, the White House and sporting events. Mills talks about the newest technology he employs in his daily work, including a double mounted camera which allows him to simultaneously capture video with one camera and still photographs with another. He reveals how he is able to quickly transmit his photos to the New York Times from global locations including Africa and Israel. He discusses his background and education and shares how he got interested in photography.
