ANDREW HARNIK

Born and raised in the Washington, DC area, Andrew Harnik has worked as a newspaper and magazine photojournalist since 2003. He has been recognized with awards from the Photos of the Year International and National Press Photographers Association's Best of Photojournalism competitions, as well as the White House News Photographers Association for the past nine years in a row including the Political Photograph of the Year in 2012, and again in 2017, a top honor.

Recently, his work has taken him around the world with top U.S. diplomats and all over the country with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in their race for president.

For many years Andrew's work was focused off Capitol Hill and away from the White House, telling stories of the nation's capital that are often overlooked. He believes that the stories of everyday people are as rewarding and important as covering high profile events and public figures.
