David Hume Kennerly has been shooting on the front lines of history for six decades. He has covered wars and the people who started them, major sporting events including the 1969 Miracle Mets-winning World Series, and every other kind of story imaginable. He has done portrait sessions with kings, queens, presidents, soldiers in the field, and Indonesian fishermen.With the advent of the new technology, Kennerly has become an old dog who has has learned new digital tricks. As his editorial work receded, he turned his attention to the more creative and equally satisfying corporate and non-profit arena. While it might seem that the distance between capturing images from a world summit to creating a new series of Girl Scout cookie boxes might be light years apart, they aren't. He understood that his skills as a news photographer and documenter of history provided an excellent foundation for other photographic endeavors.Kennerly will share these experiences, and will pass along some great advice for anyone who is enthusiastic about photography, and wants to become a better photographer.

I joined official presidential photographers David Valdez (Bush 41), Sharon Farmer (Clinton), and Eric Draper tonight at the National Archives for a panel moderated by former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers. It was a great evening before a sold out crowd, and I think Sharon should run for mayor of DC, she is the best ambassador this city has ever seen! We will always miss our departed colleagues Yoichi Okamoto (Johnson), Ollie Atkins (Nixon) and Mike Evans (Reagan).
Announcing the new, improved Kennerly.com, and its official arrival into the 21st Century! We have retired the first iteration of Kennerly.com, and donated it to the Smithsonian Institution as an excellent example of one of the first comprehensive photographer’s websites to appear on the internet. The new site is designed and built by the amazing Kristina Romero at KR Media & Designs.

David Hume Kennerly is like Forrest Gump, except he was really there.
- JAMES EARL JONES
David Kennerly once said to me, ”˜In photography everything can be taught, except how to see.' In his photographs”¦ we see people and historical events through the keen, alert eye of an eminent camera artist.
- HERMAN WOUK, / Author of “The Winds of War
Kennerly modestly refers to himself as a ”˜political photographer.' That's true, as far as it goes. But it's like calling Matthew Brady a ”˜war photographer' or Thomas Eakins a ”˜Philadelphia portrait painter.' Kennerly is as good as it gets in a craft he defined.
- HOWARD FINEMAN / Editorial director of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group
David's work is of the highest caliber, and he is one of the great American photographers. His specialty is photographing people, and nobody does it better.
