Covering the Presidential election is a whirlwind of security, press passes and speeches. The focus is on the politician speaking; flashy signs in the background, and an enthusiastic audience in the foreground. Tables full of reporters and laptops are crammed in the back of the room, and platforms for cameras and news stations are set up. Between the front of the audience and the stage is the “buffer zone,” an area where photographers get a precious few minutes to crouch and take close-ups of the speaker.
