Arnold Schwarzenegger Votes at Kenter Canyon

I am often called upon to photograph events, and today I had the privilege of photographing Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger at Kenter Canyon Elementary School in Brentwood. His political campaign division, the California Dream, hired me to photograph the event. I found the work quite challenging. It was similar to a wedding but things happened even faster. Anyway, here are a few images from today. I hope you enjoy them!

The Governator has entered the building! Check out how some kids are really thrilled about his appearance! And how some appear to be sleeping. They’ve obviously never seen Terminator or Total Recall! Except for that girl in the bottom right of the photo.
