Draper has released a book titled "Front Row Seat: A Photographic Portrait of the Presidency of George W. Bush" that displays a handful of the more than four million photos he took as chief White House photographer.
In an interview with ABC News Sunday, Draper discussed his time photographing the former president:
"My job was not to be a distraction. My job was to purely document," Draper told ABC. "That was a very unique role in the White House, to have that much access to the president not to be a participant in the meetings, but to be an observer."
Draper photographs range from "surprise, unscripted moments" like reactions to the 9/11 attack, to more intimate, personal moments between the former president and his wife, former First Lady Laura Bush.
