Since 2004, I’ve been a staff photographer for Catholic News Service. In 2009, I had the wonderful opportunity to move from the Washington, D.C., area to join the CNS Rome Bureau. For decades, CNS had used other agencies and freelancers to provide photographic coverage of the pope and the Vatican, but had never had a staff photographer in Rome.
When I arrived, I quickly realized patience and persistence are the keys to photographing Pope Benedict XVI. While it’s easy to take photos of the pope waving, it takes a lot of time and effort to capture images that are visually distinctive.
Following are some favorite images from the past three years.
