Instagram Watch: Pete Souza, Official White House Photographer

Pete Souza

Pete Souza, the photographer who has documented the presidency of Barack Obama on Flickr since his inauguration, has now taken to Instagram (@petesouza). He began posting yesterday, beginning with the President's trip to the University of Central Missouri, where he gave a speech on the economy.

Fittingly, photo #2 on the account is a boastful shot of tasty looking fruits arranged pleasantly over official Air Force One napkins. By the looks of it, Souza's already got the hang of the "I'm here and you're not" Instagram brag shot. Well done!

It will be interesting to see if and when any of Souza's Instagram photos reach iconic status, as his situation-room shot of senior staff monitoring the Osama bin Laden raid did on Flickr.
