Photographing Sarah Palin and Donald Trump... Separately.
As I'm sure that every person connected to the internet now realizes - Sarah Palin has endorsed Donald Trump. I've weirdly had the chance to photograph both of them in very odd environments... odd at least for me.
Back in 2010, while I was working on a film about Alaskan politics Sarah Palin was rumored to be speaking at a 9/11 Remembrance Rally in Wasilla, AK. Yes, a 9/11 Remembrance Rally in Wasilla, Alaska. It was very important election year for the state, with a highly contentious US Senate race, so of course the Republicans put on a rally to remember the death of over 3,000 people. They even had a sheet cake.
Donald Trump was under a bit more controlled environment. Last year at the 2015 NRA conference and convention in Nashville, TN amidst firearms, bullets, and accessories the man with the hair gave a rousing speech to the thousands of attendees.
