Hobbs’ team reached out to me 10 minutes before she announced her victory, but I threw my breakfast on the floor and sped to the venue (a brisk 3 minute walk from where I was eating) and made it there before the governor-elect did. Filed just minutes after she left. An easy and fun capstone after a month of intense work.
I was out for the Journal all of Election Day, before dawn until the last person left the Republican election party sometime after midnight. Filed early and often, with dozens of my photos flitting across the WSJ homepages throughout the day. As I expected a winner in the Governors race wasn’t announced that night, which was something of a let down, energy-wise, but there was still plenty to see.
These images, due mostly to lawsuits and election denialism, continued to be used for almost a month after Election Day.
Part of my week of pre-election day coverage for NYT.
Images from this Obama and Arizona Democrats rally were used a number of times in the days afterwards leading toward the November 8 election.
Spent a day each with a couple families that planned to use the new vouchers to supplement their children’s educations. A fun assignment, my parents were educators and I love seeing how other folks educate their kids.
Fortune later re-used this image to head an account of Damola’s daily routine. It was challenging to make the bright and sunny images requested in a restaurant (open and busy) that’s known for it’s dark and cool ambiance.
Tricky story to get done, couldn’t make photos of José actually at work; had to settle for before and after his dawn to well past dusk shifts. That definitely lent a certain mood to the images.
I did a *lot* of coverage of Arizona’s gubernatorial race, including a hyper-brief (5 min) 1:1 with Kari Lake.
