From eyewitness to history maker, Pete Souza provides behind-the-scenes photographs from the White House and beyond. Pete Souza was the 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 as a human being. In addition to the national political scene, Pete has covered stories from around the world. After 9/11, he was among the first journalists to cover the fall of Kabul, Afghanistan after crossing the Hindu Kush mountains by horseback in three feet of snow. Pete has lectured many times on his photography, including at the Smithsonian Museum of American History, Harvard University, and Boston University. He has appeared on ABC’s 20-20, Dateline NBC, CBS Sunday Morning, NBC Nightly News, Fox News Sunday, and Fox Friends and Family.
