Renie Bardeau's career as Disneyland's Chief Photographer and Photo Archivist started out as a summer job in 1959. After five years in the U.S. Navy as an aviation photographer, Bardeau took the summer job at Disneyland, because there weren't any internships at the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. Bardeau's first assignment was to take photos of Walt Disney and then-Vice President Richard Nixon during Tomorrowland's opening.
Bardeau became a full-time employee in 1964 and was named Disneyland's Chief Photographer in 1975. In addition Chief Photographer, Bardeau was Disneyland's Photo Archivist prior to his retirement in 1998.
