Chase sits down with the world's top creators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and unpacks actionable, valuable insights to help you live your dreams in career, hobby, and life.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

One of the things I love about photography is it’s a universal language. You can look at an image intuitively feel the power and the emotion, regardless of age, race, gender, social/economic status, geography, even time.

Pete Souza is such a critical creator in not just the arc of the United States of America and world politics, but as a guy out there doing what he loves, chasing his passion and hoping to tell a story and represent history in a powerful and profound way.

He’s done cover stories for Nat Geo, LIFE magazine, Fortune, Newsweek, and was one of the Chicago Tribune staff back in 2001. Most notably he was the official photographer of President Ronald Reagan, and then the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Barack Obama, where he made some of the most iconic pictures in the last 20 years.

His book, “Obama: An Intimate Portrait,” was published by Little, Brown & Company in 2017, and debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. It is one of the best-selling photography books of all time. His latest book, “Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents,” also debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in October 2018.

This conversation has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with storytelling, pursuing dreams, and the road to get there, whatever your dreams might be.
