The speed of light is always locally constant i.e. every observer measures the speed of light at their location to be 𝑐. Therefore there cannot be an observer who sees light to be stationary. There can be no observer who moves at the speed of light.
In fact it was when Einstein realised this that he discovered special relativity.
