Michael Evans, Photographer of Ronald Reagan, Dies at 61Breaking News
The cause was cancer, the National Press Photographers Association said.
Mr. Evans worked for Time magazine, The New York Times and other publications, but was best known as the official White House photographer during the Reagan administration. He was by the president's side when he was shot in 1981, and for weeks afterward Mr. Reagan was seen by the public almost exclusively in still photographs taken by Mr. Evans or his staff of four.
The photograph of Mr. Reagan, smiling his celebrated, slightly crooked smile, was taken in 1975 during the early months of his losing campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, Mr. Evans said in interviews in 2004.
