This behind-the-scenes look at the lives of our recent Commanders in Chief features the images and recollections of the nine professionals who have served as official White House photographers, including Pete Souza, the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and previously an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan. The President's Photographer is the intimate story of the men and women who are both visual historians and key links between the public and the Presidents. 

Five of the nine Official White House Photographers are alive today, and in rare personal interviews, they recount the stories behind the remarkable photographs. Expressive close-ups of presidents reveal moments of joy, reflection, and turmoil over public issues and private challenges. Unexpected angles cast new light on historical events. Through both iconic and little-known images, this book offers a fresh perspective on life and work behind the famous facade of the White House.
