“My memories of him are that he was very focused on his job, always positioning himself to make sure he got the best photo from whatever event we were recording. It sounds simple, but it is far from that. After all, photographers covering Washington are acting as the eyes of history. That adds a hefty dose of pressure to what already requires great skill.

Working the politics beat in Washington requires exquisite timing, patience and a thorough knowledge of who’s who in the political world. Wilson had all of that and proved it over and over again.”

“Prizewinning photojournalist Mark Wilson, who worked for Getty Images for more than 20 years, covering four presidents, NASA launches, severe weather, NASCAR races, and general news assignments in the Washington D.C. area died Wednesday November 18 at home in Owings, Md at the age of 65.”
