Ohio U. prof named White House photographer

January 7, 2009

Pete Souza, an assistant professor of photojournalism at Ohio University's School of Visual Communication, has been chosen to serve as the chief White House photographer when Barack Obama becomes president.

The Massachusetts-born photographer began taking pictures of Obama in January 2005 for the Chicago Tribune, shortly after the president-elect made a name for himself on the national stage as a freshman senator from Illinois.
