FORT WAYNE. Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – A globally recognized photographer that was born and raised in Fort Wayne shared his experiences of capturing iconic moments of the 41st President.

Peter Turnley was born and raised in Fort Wayne. He later moved to France to begin his career as a photographer.
