A staff photographer from The New York Times in Washington, D.C., believes President Donald Trump gives better access than President Barack Obama did, after covering the two administrations.

Doug Mills said that photographers like him receive “a lot more” access compared to the previous administration, in an interview with C-SPAN

“We’re getting a lot more, I mean from a photographer’s standpoint, we get a lot more access to the president. I see him more on a daily basis than we did with Barack Obama,” Mills told the network. “Sometimes three or four times a day, sometimes five times a day we will see him.”

Better access allows photographers like Mills to create a more dynamic view of the White House.

“It’s exhausting, but it’s great,” Mills said. “It is very different,” he added.
