Callie was the official photographer at the White House for Vice President Al Gore during his entire 8-yearterm.

Her work was like that of a “photographic historian”, documenting three politicals campaigns, one impeachment, numerous state dinners and roughly 50,000 handshakes. She has had tea at Buckingham Palace, lunch with former South Africa President Mandela and eaten insects in Morocco.


In 1998, the last year she sat down long enough to figure it out, the vice-president's staff traveled over 265,000 miles - actual miles, not the frequent flyer ones - enough to go to the moon. Last year she was consumed with the election, which by some accounts, they lost.

Her work from the White House has been published extensively around the world, appearing all major news magazines around the world.
