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)

The boy did not ask to touch Obama's hair. He asked "Is your hair like mine?" to which Obama bent down and said "Touch it dude!"

Note the agent in the background with the sullen face. The gold pin on his jacket lapel means he has a gun.
