The Apple co-founder had a reputation among photographers for being “not just run-of-the mill difficult, but the archetype of difficult,” writes David Walker. Photographer Ed Kashi tells him that Steve Jobs “was one of the most difficult subjects I ever dealt with during my Silicon Valley years but I appreciated his awareness of identity, setting and message of the images.” (Kashi has a tribute on his blog.) Former Fortune photo editor Scott Thode says Jobs was not unlike a political candidate, but “the main difference is that he had a real sense of design and how things can look.” Doug Menuez, who spent more time photographing Jobs than just about any other photographer, says of the experience: “I’ve been in war zones, but I like to say that I became a man learning how to stand my ground with Steve.” || Time.com: Diana Walker’s photos of Steve Jobs.
