Photographer Pete Souza came to Kansas in the mid 1970s from Boston looking for a tornado to shoot.
It took him awhile to get that photo but Souza soon proved he had an eye for capturing a moment and telling profound stories within a single photograph.
He received his master's degree in journalism from Kansas State University.
After his stint at K-State, he worked briefly for the Chanute Tribune and the Hutchinson News before working for the Chicago Sun-Times and later the Chicago Tribune.
Never miss a local story.
He worked as a White House photographer during President Ronald Reagan's second term. In fact, he was so treasured by the Reagans, Nancy Reagan asked him to accompany the family during funeral events for the president.
After 9/11, Souza was one of the first journalists to cover the fall of the Taliban in Kabul, Afghanistan, after crossing the Hindu Kush mountains by horseback in 3 feet of snow.
