Official White House Photographer Reveals His Favourite Photos Of Obama

The chief official White House photographer, Pete Sounza, has taken two million pictures of President Obama since 2009 and now he's revealed his favourite 55.

Can you imagine how long it took him to narrow this down to 55?

From cute photo-ops with babies to waiting to hear the outcome of the US' mission to kill Bin Laden, Pete was there to capture it all.

He told NPR: "One thing I made clear before accepting was I said I need to have access to everything, it's quite clear I'll be there for everything ... I'm in the room."

He also said that his images are never vetted or filtered by administration.

"There's a certain daily grind to my job, but I'd say, once, twice, three, four, 10 times a week, you realise that you are an eyewitness to history. And I always try to keep that forefront in my mind," he added.
