Just have to look in the right places. Pete Souza is fuckin' awesome.
I'm not finding the particular albums that I've admired before, but here's a compilation http://lightbox.time.com/2012/10/08/pete-souza-portrait-of-a-presidency/#5

this is supposed to be really good too. http://www.pbs.org/programs/presidents-photographer/
souza is a favorite on the project52 boards and discussed frequently

Cool pictures of LBJ.

I've got a funny story about LBJ. My Step Father's Mother was a student at Southwest Texas State University(now known as Texas State) in San Marcos at the same time as LBJ. She died in 1999, but was quite a Wild person and had a lot of attitude. Anyway, LBJ worked at the University as a Janitor at the time. She knew him. He asked her out on a date at one point. She told him to his face NO and told him it was because he was a Janitor!!! LOL

Holy shit, that's fucking crazy dude! You should see if she's mentioned in Robert Caro's awesome LBJ books, he spent a lot of time going over his college days. She's not the only person that turned him down with the idea that he wouldn't ever amount to much lol.

Yeah. So many flaws, but unsurpassed (as far as I can tell) at getting what he wanted person-to-person communication. He was *very* well known for walking around and doing that thing where he leaned into people, sometimes even grabbing their lapels or putting his arm around them (not necessarily warmly either lol).

That's pretty cool. I've never heard of that author. Thanks for the info.

Yeah it was decent, seems like a semi-shitty job though, basically becomes your life

Yeah... the flip side is that (at least for most of us) it would be a life of doing what you love. I guess what I'm saying is that giving up your life for a job stinks, but at least you'd be giving it up for something you'd love to do all day every day (and most of us do for free in our free time anyway lol)

Not worth the lost family time though. I bet it gets boring as shit shooting the same guy for 4 years.

I was introduced to the guy who was Clinton's photographer during his 8 years, at my cousins' restaurant grand opening. Didn't get to speak with him too much because he was with his family and eating. He seemed pretty high strung though. I had his info somewhere, should get in touch with him. I would love to see some of the outtakes or pics he hadn't published.

This is the guy: http://www.ralphphoto.com/#/
