    Watched this last night on Netflicks.

    Pretty good. Was quite amazed to hear that they shoot upwards of a million shots a year. Some of the shots were quite candid and revealing. Not just of Obama, but also previous Presidents. All the shots are ours, part of the national record and available through the Presidential libraries.

    The work of these folks is often incredible. I don't think I could handle it, the long hours and need to be 'on' all the time.

    Current official shooter is Pete Souza.

    He also covered Reagan.
