To mark the opening of the Newseum’s “Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe,” two presidential photographers talk about access to the president and how their work shaped history.

Panelists

  • Eric Draper, President George W. Bush’s chief photographer for the entire eight years of his presidency who was named Special Assistant to the President and is the first White House photographer to be named a commissioned officer to a U.S. President.
  • Callie Shell, Vice President Gore’s chief photographer for the entire eight year of the Clinton/Gore White House who went on to cover President Barack Obama from 2004 through his historic campaign, inauguration and first 100 days in office.

Kenneth T. Walsh, White House correspondent for U.S. News & World Report, will moderate the program. He is the author of the upcoming book, “Ultimate Insiders: White House Photographers and How They Shape History.”

To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of President John F. Kennedy, the Newseum is bringing back for a limited time one of its most popular exhibits — “Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe.” This stunning photo exhibit showcases more than 80 intimate and iconic images of President John F. Kennedy, first lady Jacqueline Kennedy and their children, Caroline and John, taken by Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacques Lowe.
