Few jobs look cooler on a business card than "Official White House Photographer." But that's precisely the job of Pete Souza, the man who's spent the last eight years documenting Barack Obama's two terms in The Oval Office.

"When you add up (the president's) day, and all the things that I photograph, I take a lot of pictures," said the photographer in a short interview for BBC Newsnight. "Someone in my office who monitors this said that I'll probably end up taking, at the end of eight years, two million photographs."

Souza, who was also Ronald Reagan's official photographer from 1983 to 1989, actually took his first pictures of Obama back in 2005. “He’s walking around Red Square, he’s on a sidewalk, and nobody knows who he is," said the photographer. Just four years later however, Obama was elected as the 44th President of the United States.

Take a look at some of Souza's amazing pictures below. You can find more on the Official White House Flickr account. (h/t: PetaPixel)

It might not have been announced, but as a former journalist, I can assure you that all stops are thoroughly 'checked out' and secured before the President is allowed to visit. He might have had a hankering for a burger at 10 am, and the Secret Service checked out a place, but it's never "oh, let's go to this place" just on a whim.
