White House Photographer: An Interview with Pete Souza

By Anthony Thurston on March 16th 2013

Have you ever wondered about where the pictures coming out of the White House come from? Who is taking them? Who is selecting which ones get published? Pete Souza, Chief Official White House Photographer, is the answer to all three of those questions.

The Obama administration has been one of the most open administrations in terms of interaction with the public through various social networks and digital media. A big part of that interaction is a seemingly never ending flow of images from the goings on inside the Presidents home.

While searching the web for tasty bits of information for you to devour on this Saturday morning I came across this awesome wealth of knowledge in the form of a 45 minute interview with Pete Souza. The video itself is a few years old, but the information is very interesting to say the least. Souza talks about everything from how he shoots meetings with the President to setting up group shots, and his thoughts on Photojournalism in this day and age.  If you are curious about what goes on behind the scenes at the White House from a photographers perspective I highly recommend you take the time to watch this interview. Its great stuff.
