Pete Souza was the acclaimed Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and President Reagan. During Obama’s eight years as president, Pete took close to two million photographs. To truly document both of the President’s lives, Pete would take on the responsibility of attending every meeting the president was a part of, all the time. It was important for him to capture the president not just as a leader, but also as a human being.
Since “retirement,” Pete Souza has become an Instagram sensation by quietly posting opportune images from his archive and has been working on a book to be released this fall.
