These days, most people know the name, Pete Souza. He’s been the official White House photographer twice – for Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama – as well as being a photographer for The Chicago Tribune for many years in between. He’s often asked what’s in his camera bags and what he uses to shoot his work.
He’s spoken about it a little in the past, but now Souza has posted an 11-and-a-half-minute video to Instagram going over the gear he used while following the president, how he used it and why he chose those specific items. He also walks us through some of the images he shot, the challenges he faced and how he overcame them.
