Wyoming Tribune Eagle photographer James Brosher has a wonderful personal web site set up highlighting his great work. Included in his many arresting images are some nice moments from the legislative session, like First Lady Carol Mead reading to school kids and legislators working with each other and meeting with visitors. Brosher does a great job of capturing how closely Wyoming residents can interact with their lawmakers during the session.
On Tuesdays and Fridays, my main assignment of the day is to cover the Wyoming Legislature. Those are the two days when I work the day shift during the week, meaning that I go over to the capitol typically before lunch. Clad in a suit and tie, I roam the hallways and galleries of both the House and Senate chambers looking for something interesting to photograph. The light is terrible in the hallways, but I managed to make a couple features from overhead positions outside of the chambers today. I’ve never covered state government before so I’m enjoying the opportunity to run around the capitol and make features.
