S106 - 99U Fireside Chat with Former White House Photographer Pete Souza

Session Speakers
Session Description

What is it like to do one of the most intense creative jobs for one of the world’s most challenging clients? That’s one of the many questions 99U editor-in-chief Matt McCue will ask Pete Souza, who photographed President Obama’s iconic presidency (as well as President Reagan’s). He’ll discuss what it was like to work in a dream job only a few people have ever had.  

In this interview, you’ll hear how Pete:

  • Landed the coveted job
  • Built up trust with President Obama and developed a strong personal rapport
  • Captured the human side of President Obama 
  • Navigated time zones, high-pressure conversations, security issues, large crowds, and lights to take his photos
  • Balanced the demands of the job with his personal life
