MORE than they did to former President Obama. 

During an interview on C-SPAN, Doug Mills said the White House is "quite an exciting place to work right now."

"We're getting a lot more, I mean from a photographer's standpoint, we get a lot more access to the president," he said during the interview that airs Sunday.

Mills said he sometimes sees Trump multiple times a day and is able to photograph him in different situations.

"It's exhausting, but it's great," he said. "I love what I'm doing, I've got the greatest job in the world."

During the interview, he also called Obama "probably the most photogenic president in my generation ... and in many generations."

But he called Trump "one of the most iconic."

"I look at just the past year in photographing Donald Trump and he's probably one of the most iconic," he said. "It's challenging but it's fun."
