We've all seen them: photos of the latest NASA shuttle lifting off from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. Many of those images have come from the same group of professional press photographers, including Scott Andrews with Canon. Andrews, who has a background in engineering, created a specialized trigger to capture close-up images of the shuttle liftoff.
Recently, Andrews' son Philip, a college graduate, joined his father capturing the final shuttle launches. As the shuttle program’s end comes with Thursday’s scheduled landing of Atlantis, CNN's John Couwels followed the photographers that captured American history.
