Photographer George Lange opens up about his remarkable career and relationship with Glenn

If you have followed Glenn for a while, you have probably heard him talk about his good friend and photographer George Lange. George recently co-authored a bestselling book: The Unforgettable Photograph: 228 Ideas, Tips, and Secrets for Taking the Best Pictures of Your Life. He has enjoyed success few photographers can hope to achieve - working with celebrities and politicians with his work appearing in Esquire, GQ, and The New York Times among others.

George recently sat down with Mark St. Amant at The Good Men Project and spoke about what it is like to work with such large personalities - chief among them, Glenn. Given that George describes himself as a prototypical 'card-carrying New York liberal,' St. Amant questioned how he and Glenn could become such good friends. But, as George described, the relationship has nothing to do with politics.

"See that’s the thing: we don’t talk about politics much. We don’t see each other in terms of labels... We find other ways in," George explained. "We talk about being parents a lot. We talk about love, which is the most important thing to me of all. All of my work is about loving my subjects, trying to show what makes them so special, trying to find that place that we all connect. How can you love the 'most hated man in America?' Our relationship is all about trust."

George also opened up about one of the most surprising things to come out of his work with Glenn: The remarkable support he has received from Glenn's fans.

"One of the greatest joys of working with Glenn has been how his audience has embraced our work together," George said. "Glenn jokes on the air... about me being his communist friend. His audience knows my politics, they know where I come from, and yet they’ve opened their arms to me. I haven’t tried to hide my politics. I stay loyal to my own beliefs. But more important, I’ve searched for the place we’re all connected."

"But seriously, how does such a liberal become so close with Glenn Beck," St. Amant asked one final time.

"This is how: My brother had a heart attack in Boulder last May. He’s fine now, but was in a coma for three weeks in the ICU... Every single day, Glenn would reach out to me asking if he could help, offering to come to Boulder and visit, whatever I needed," George explained. "After days of his offers, I told my mother (also a big liberal) about Glenn’s offering to help. She was pretty raw going through this whole period with my brother and she blurted out, 'Yes he can help: tell Glenn to vote Democratic and cut the BS!' The next day I told Glenn what she’d said and he replied, 'George, I’d do anything for you . . . but that’s never gonna happen.'"

On of the primary themes of George's new book is to share some of what he has learned throughout the years about taking a truly special photograph. When it comes to photography, George has one mission in mind: Take the unforgettable photo, not the perfect one. During a recent interview with CBS This Morning, George explained the last thing we should be doing this holiday season is trying to take the “perfect” photograph.

“The least interesting picture is the person standing there smiling, staring at the camera – it’s the least revealing,” he said. “You want to show what makes us human, what makes us special. And we’re trying to take pictures of what makes our lives amazing.”

While we have all grown accustomed to saying 'cheese' and smiling directly into the camera, George suggested people start looking for the interesting instead of the posed.

“We are always trying to set up this perfect picture, and meanwhile all the really interesting pictures are kind of orbiting around that … These are the really special moments,” George explained. “This is what’s never going to happen again.”

Another pro-tip: Shy away from using the flash unless you absolutely have to. "“We have amazing light going on in our houses,” George said. "All we have to do is be aware of it."

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) recently sent a fiery letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding she stop obstructing GOP efforts to investigate security measures taken before and on January 6, 2021.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Rep. Davis said the Capitol Police should release all communications concerning security from that day, but the police chief can’t do so without an "okay" from the House sergeant at arms — a Pelosi appointee. Americans deserve to know why the Capitol’s security posture was so bad that day, so we can be sure it won’t happen again, but unfortunately, Rep. Davis told Glenn, that may not occur until Republicans take the House majority back.

"Republicans condemn the violence that took place a year ago. That was unanimous," Davis said. "But here we are today still left wondering, what did the sergeant at arms of the House — the lead law enforcement official appointed directly by the speaker — what did he do in preparation leading up to January 6? There's been conflicting testimony, and all I've ever asked for, as the lead Republican on the respective oversight committee, is just to get the communications. We want to know what preparations were made, and the only person standing in the way of us getting the communications from her own appointee, who controls the House security operations, is Speaker Pelosi," he added.

"Unfortunately, the House is a very majority-driven institution. And remember, the Capitol Police chief cannot make a single security decision without going to Speaker Pelosi's appointed sergeant at arms. That's her own political appointee," Davis continued. "So, you know when I'm going to get this information? It's when I'm the chairman of the House Administration Committee when Republicans take over Congress in November of 2022."
