Peter Stevenson has been a journalist as long as he can remember. Growing up in the Washington, D.C. area, Peter interned for The New York Times at the 2004 Republican and Democratic Conventions. Returning to the role in 2008, Peter had his first professional work published on The New York Times' Caucus blog.
Peter became a freelance photographer for The New York Times and Gannett in 2010. Working for the Times, Peter covered a wide range of stories, including labor protests, the Super Bowl, homelessness and the economy, and widespread tornado damage. After returning to Washington, D.C., Peter covered Capitol Hill and Washington politics.
In 2013, Peter returned to the Midwest and worked with Thomas Miller and Fox Frame Productions to film a feature-length documentary about the Little 500 bike race. The film follows four teams of students as they train for the Little 500 – from the snowy hills of Southern Indiana in February to the gritty 50-mile race in April.
From 2013 to 2015, Peter worked at NewsBeat Social, a video news startup headquartered in Portland, OR, where as Managing Editor he oversaw daily news production..
Peter started as video editor for the Washington Post's Fix blog in December 2015, where he covered presidential politics, Congress and the 2016 elections, then the first six months of the Trump administration. In July 2017, Peter was promoted to Senior Video Producer for national news and politics. He oversees The Post's team of video editors covering Washington and the 2020 campaign.
