Despite a phalanx of photojournalists covering the unfolding events of news and world history, it is only a rarified few that have the privilege of being tapped to be the official White House photographer. Unlike the rest of the photo-journo pool, the President’s photographer is afforded a special privilege that goes beyond the public view to capturing the private moments of the world’s most important leader.In “The President’s Photographer,” four of the leading lights of this professi [...]
As a professional photographer and self-proclaimed history nerd, when I first heard about this book it piqued my interest. I wasn't let down!Great images from presidential photographers, and more writing than I had expected, which was a nice surprise. I enjoyed learning about the day-to-day of a White House photographer, and also hearing what it's like during the more monumental days.It's interesting to note that the president's photographer usually has more clearance to be with the president th [...]
This book was an interesting glimpse into the role of presidential photographer. The primary photographer is working for President Obama, but there are also chapters which describe the evolution of the role of the president's photographer along with anecdotes from the men who worked for Kennedy, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, G Bush, Clinton and GW Bush. LBJ's photographer was quite a character and really set the bar high for his predecessors. An interesting fact is Carter choosing not to have a photographer [...]
Fascinating photographs from most of the modern Presidencies (since 1960). The text of the book discusses the photographers of Kennedy, Johnson, Ford, Reagan, both Bushes, and Obama - and discusses the different approach taken by Nixon and Carter with regard to access for photos. Anyone interested in photography or the modern American Presidency would enjoy this book.
This book had a lovely layout between photos and text, although I do wish a little bit that there had been more photos.I never thought about the president's photographer before, although I have followed Pete Souza on Instagram for a couple of months now.This books gives a portrait on how beautiful photographs are made in the White House, and the dedication that comes with it.
A little disappointing. The photos are interesting and the overall history of how the President's photographer came to be was interesting as well. But this specific book has more dialogue than photos, and most of that dialogue covers Obama's health reform bill. I watched the television documentary and preferred that.
I'm accustomed to candid shots of our president and found it remarkable how recent the ritual. Extraordinary photographers gain personal trust. Invisible lens give priceless views inside "the bubble" of the First Family.
Surpasses the usual photo book by providing more context than captions allow. The books weaves two narratives around the photos: a few days in the life of Obama's chief photographer, Pete Souza, and the history of photography in the White House.
This is such an amazing recount of photography in the White House. Not only are we presented with beautiful photographs, but also with the stories of the President's personal photographers. The recounts add so much depth to a President's term. Absolutely fascinating.
Great inside view of the White House and memorable photos!
My review in AND Magazine: andmagazine/content/an
Great companion to the PBS National Geographic special (which I also watched).
Great pics and chronicles how the photographers worked with presidents. Great read.
This was a fascinating behind the scenes look at what it means to be the presidential photographer. It was a real treat to read this book.
