The secret diary of an election photographer - Day 17

I must be ill, I turned down a ticket to the media centre for tonight's debate kindly offered by the Sky guys I have been working with for the past couple of weeks.

As mentioned before, there was just a single photo op today - with Bristol NW candidate Paul Harrod at a mum and toddler group in the city.

As ever, the press were out in full force for the event but, luckily, the coverage inside was 'pooled' ie only a single TV camera and two photographers (myself included) were allowed in. It means there is space to work and, in this case, there is no danger of small children being bumped into. Because there are only limited cameras inside, the footage taken is share between all media outlets.

After the photo op, it was back to the hotel to collapse and wait for the debate...
