June was a good month. I had the privilege of traveling to Canada for the G8 and G20 summits in the White House Travel Pool. A big shout-out is deserved for the AP's Charles Dharapak, Reuters' Jason Reed, and AFP's Saul Loeb for taking me under their wing and helping a rookie like me through the summits. There's hardly a better group of photojournalists to spend 3 exhausting days of shooting with. Truly an honor to be there.
