Pete Souza to Keynote at Content Marketing World 2021

As content marketers, we know the power of visual storytelling to bring our ideas and brands to life. At its best, we’re not just replacing the written word, but creating a moment with our audience that piques curiosity, generates emotion, and motivates action.

At Content Marketing World 2021, we’ll welcome master visual storyteller Pete Souza to the keynote stage. A renowned photographer, best-selling author, and award-winning documentarian, Pete will share his most iconic photos and inspire us with the authenticity, emotion, and human spirit he’s captured during his journey in visually documenting U.S. history.

Pete was the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan from 1983-1989. His two books based on his experiences, Obama: An Intimate Portrait and Shade, are both New York Times #1 Bestsellers. The documentary The Way I See It based on his books, has won numerous awards including Critics’ Choice Documentary Award for Best Score and the organization’s non-competitive Most Compelling Living Subjects of a Documentary award. The movie reveals how Pete transforms from a respected photojournalist to a searing commentator on the issues we face as a country and a people.

Pete was an eyewitness to the unique and tremendous responsibilities of being the most powerful person on Earth. During the eight years he photographed President Obama, Pete estimates he took roughly 1.9 million photographs. He was witness to some of the most important moments in U.S. history including the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. He now travels the world lecturing about his photography.

We look forward to his captivating keynote at Content Marketing World, and we’d love to have you there with us. In the meantime, to learn more about Pete Souza, visit his website or follow him on Instagram.
