Photojournalist and NPPA member Pete Souza has accepted the position of official White House photographer for President-elect Barack Obama, he told News Photographer magazine tonight.
Souza received the offer for the position from Robert Gibbs, the new president's longtime spokesman who is also Obama's incoming White House press secretary.
It won't be Souza's first time in the Oval Office. He was also a White House photographer during President Ronald Reagan's second term.
