Pete Souza

Pete Souza has taken photographs for National Geographic, Life magazine, and other dream outlets for any journalist. He’s covered wars, and he shot covers for magazines, including Newsweek and Fortune. During the Obama years, he was the chief official White House photographer. His book, Obama, An Intimate Portrait, was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. In 2017 Pete Souza started posting images from the Obama presidency on Instagram with captions that indirectly comment on the current occupant of the White House. He now has over two million Instagram followers and he’s just published a new book titled: Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents.

Debbie talks with Pete Souza about his years as the Obama administration official photographer. “I acknowledge that I’m not the greatest photographer in the world, but I think that I was absolutely the best photographer for this particular situation.”
