Reggie Selma

Former senior photojournalist, CNN

Based at CNN’s Washington DC Bureau for more than 30 years, Reggie Selma was one of CNN’s most dedicated and knowledgeable senior photojournalists, and was the organisation’s first African American cameraman assigned to the White House. Now retired, the award-winning photojournalist travels the world to share his considerable experience of meeting global leaders.

During his time at CNN, he filmed US presidents from Reagan to Obama, as well as covering numerous proceedings in Congress. He has worked alongside some of journalism’s finest reporters, from Wolf Blitzer to Anderson Cooper to Katie Couric. He has documented countless historical events, covering such figures as Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II.

After a long and successful career behind the lens, Reggie has now stepped in front of the camera, and offers us a unique, behind-the-scenes peek into the world of the White House, prominent global leaders, and the inner workings of the media and celebrities – a rare glimpse that very few get.
