All presidents of the U.S. are shadowed by at least a still photographer during all official functions. That is not new. Don’t know about the video camera though.
I was just going to post that very same thing. It is really quite an honor among photojournalists to be chosen white house photographer. Some of them get unbelievable access to world changing events. Most of the the time they take pictures of handshakes.
In this day and age, I would think the videographers are right behind the White House Staff Photographer.
