The White House Year in Photos by Pete Souza

"White House Photographer Pete Souza shares moments from President Barack Obama's first year in office."

If there is one person I am jealous of in this world, it's a guy by the name of Pete Souza. First of all, he's got a Canon 5D Mark II, which I probably wouldn't even know what to do with it's so nice, but most of all - the guy is so incredibly talented. Watch this slideshow for some amazing shots of the first year in the WH, and, if you are interested in the back story on any of them, check the detail page for commentary.

I can't imagine what it must be like to have that kind of access and witness history like that, let alone be able to capture the seemingly perfect emotion and paint the picture of each setting.

Fantastic work.
