View photos: here (http://flickr.com/gageskidmore).

After days of selecting, editing and uploading, I have finally compiled a large selection of photos I took at this year's CPAC. I attempted to attend nearly every C4L & YAL event, as well as every major speaker, and I believe I was able to accomplish that goal. Thanks to my press pass, I was able to take photos from wherever I pleased, and I hope that you enjoy the photos of the speakers from my personal perspective. You can find plenty more photos, here (http://flickr.com/gageskidmore).

Although the event was very draining by the end of the week, I hope you all enjoy my photos. I look forward to hopefully attending next year as well. Our victory at this year's CPAC was amazing, and really signifies our movement's strength and passion. It was great meeting those of you who also made the journey to CPAC, and for those who didn't, I hope I've let you in on what you unfortunately missed.

You can find a vast collection of photos, more than 600 I believe, on my photostream, here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/gageskidmore/sets/72157626063134742/). Please enjoy.

Those are really good photos. Although I hate both men, the pictures of Trump and Romney are brilliant.

Do it more often, it's cool.

Well, it was largely due to the lens I was using, as I rented one specifically for CPAC. The one I used is much better than the one I usually usually use though, but I have been looking into purchasing a new lens.

Awesome job man. How difficult was it to obtain a press pass?

Dang, does everyone use teleprompters?

It's there for those that want to use, but not everyone used it. Lots of people made fun of Obama at CPAC in previous years for using teleprompters, all while a teleprompter was on stage during their speech. They weren't using it, though.
