Good documentary. Lots of pictures of President Obama with his photographer Souza as well as the previous Presidents.

Nat Geo does so many good documentaries and this is one of them. As the documentary progresses you will see lots of photos of Obama, both at work and at play. I believe Pete Souza's photographs were instrumental in revealing the human side of Obama, his love of children, his wife, his girls, and at times the pain and stress of being president. A very good look at Obama and his personal photographer Pete Souza. Highly recommend this documentary.

You follow Souza photgraphing President Obama and its interesting to see how staff respond to him, including affectionate teasing that may be essential because it makes things flow. He's talented, confident and a perfectionist, and you get a glimpse of his psyche, if you look. The interviews about him and other presidential photographers with Obama and former presidents are pretty pat, but worthwhile nonetheless.

Excellent doc on the evolution of photography to document and mold our perception of each presidency. Pictures that reveal the person as well as documenting important events.

Very worth while.
