President-elect Barack Obama has tapped a Massachusetts native and Boston University alumnus to be the next official White House photographer. Pete Souza, a former Chicago Tribune photographer, will be in charge of visually documenting Obama's administration. Souza most recently has been teaching photojournalism at Ohio University's School of Visual Communication. His latest book, "The Rise of Barack Obama," was published in July. Souza extensively documented Obama's first year in the Senate and accompanied the Democrat to seven countries including Kenya, South Africa, and Russia. The native of South Dartmouth also served as Ronald Reagan's photographer (left). (AP)
