President Barack Obama and photojournalist Pete Souza go back a long way. When Souza worked as a Washington-based photographer for the Chicago Tribune, he documented Obama’s political career as a United States Senator.
He did such a good job that President Obama asked Souza to become his official White House photographer in 2008. It was the second time he had held this position after having held the same position for President Ronald Reagan. .
Millions of photos later, Souza will be inducted into the International Photography Hall of Fame in St. Louis on October 29. He will join on Monday Saint Louis on the air to reflect on his career as a presidential photographer through the administrations.
