Behind the scenes from a photographer’s point of view


John Harrington has a fantastic video and script up about coverage of how photographers work when they are covering a State of the Union Address. This is awesome. Kudos to John for taking the time to get this out.

One of the primary positions is the head on position; in addition there is a left position and a right position on either side of the chamber. There are also corner positions and a rear position known as the reversal position. Now in addition one of the very unique positions that’s been added in oh the last 5 or 10 years is the floor pool position.

I am not going to spoil things for you but there are great conversations about photographers, cameras, and  photographers editorial angles (what they were trying to aim for in the photographs shot). Nice work John. A big thank you!
