About The Sachs Collection

Arnie and Ron Sachs Have Had a Front Row Seat for History

The Sachs Collection includes over 750,000 images of the most important events in modern history.

Arnie Sachs came to Washington, DC in 1950 as a press photographer covering the Truman White House. Since then, a member of the Sachs family has covered every U.S. Presidential administration.

Arnie Sachs was an award-winning photojournalist who photographed history at the White House, Capitol Hill, and in professional sports.

He may be best known for his iconic photo of future President Bill Clinton as a teenager meeting President John F. Kennedy. Arnie captured that famous moment where President Clinton decided he wanted to pursue the Presidency.

Arnie won the White House News Photographers Association Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 before his death from cancer in 2006.

Today, Arnie's son, Ron Sachs is the President of Consolidated News Photos, an independent news picture agency in Washington, DC. Photos from The Sachs Collection appear to this day in publications all over the globe.

Ron is a regular at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and at any event making national news in Washington, DC.

In addition to regular news coverage, Ron has also been a leader among photojournalists.

Ron served four-terms as the President of the White House News Photographers Association and on the Standing Committee of Press Photographers in the United States Senate. In the 1992 campaign, he served as President George H. W. Bush's campaign photographer.

In addition, Ron prides himself on being a teacher to the next generation of White House News Photographers. He has educated and mentored many new faces in the White House Press Corps.

Arnie and Ron's photos make up The Sachs Collection. Their photos have appeared in numerous publications around the world for nearly a century including the Washington Post, New York Times, Time Magazine, Life Magazine, and countless others.
