He has some many amazing photos of Obama yet he chose that as the cover.

Pete did amazing job during Obama's presidency.

It is sad to see that this quality of work is been replaced by smartphone snaps.

A lot of great work is starting to be replaced by smartphone snaps. People are starting to look past the greatness of a quality image captured by a really well put together camera.
