Where is the Man Behind the Curtain?

I find images like this one on the White House website fascinating. The apparatus of the lights for shooting his online videos counterintuitively makes him appear more authentic, since he seems to be reminding the viewer that he is the "transparency" president who supposedly shows all parts of the process, and he is shot in a naturalistic environment rather than against a green screen.
