I will say this– I was in no way excited to go and photograph the local city council election night in Culver City. The assignment just screamed boring photos to me. However, cynicism be damned, I actually had a lot of fun shooting it. I realized that the completely open and unfiltered access I had the candidates is something I would never get with a governor, congressman, or (obviously) the president. The emotions are all the same– be it winning a city council seat or a Senate seat– and I am happy I got to cover the elections.
