Barnes & Nobles’ Hillary Rodham Clinton Book Signing (L.A.)

Above image: Hillary extends a hand to the public who are in attendance for the ‘Hard Choices’ book signing event at Barnes & Noble (located in The Grove at the Farmers Market).

I was honored to be invited by Barnes & Noble to document the Hillary Rodham Clinton booking signing event for Hard Choices this past June. As you can maybe imagine, it was thrilling to be in the presence of such a monolithic figure, let alone to be given permission to point my camera at this iconic woman. The energy of the day was palpable as I witnessed her relentlessly sign hundreds of books, stopping to greet each and every invigorated person who came for the face-to-face encounter.

And heck! Now I can proudly say that my photography gear has the stamp of approval from bomb-sniffing dogs!

I leave you with one last photo of the press pit that I found myself folded up into. It makes me chuckle thinking back on it now!
