What It’s Like To Be A White House Photographer [VIDEO]

Fascinating piece on CBS This Morning about George W. Bush’s presidential photographer.  Ever wonder what it’s like to spend virtually every minute with the President of the United States, to sit in every meeting, to share virtually every public and private moment?

“The goal was not to just be a fly on the wall, but be a piece of furniture in the room.”  –Eric Draper

 

Watch this video from CBS:

 

It’s worth noting that one person local person knows exactly what that’s like to have this dream job.  His name is Pete Souza.  He was born in New Bedford and raised in South Dartmouth.  Souza graduated from BU and got his master’s from Kansas State University.  He is now the White House photographer for President Obama.  He was also a White House photographer for President Reagan and President George H.W. Bush.

Souza took this famous picture of the situation room during the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound.  It is currently the most viewed photo ever on Flikr.
