Charles Ommanney by Fabiola Barragan

Charles Ommanney

Is a British photographer that spent a decade covering the White House during the terms of U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. While he had access to the country’s commanders in chief, his lens often gravitated toward the body guards.

Being around the agents for so many years did not allow him to build relationships with them. He knew one of Bush’s body guards because they went to the same tailor, but he said fraternizing with the photographers was not part of their daily routine.

Acces to the president was always carefully controlled with details specifically planned, including where Ommanney and the other photographers were allowed to stand, for how long and what time.
