Today’s The New York Times Daily 360 video captures what it’s like to photograph a presidential candidate. The New York Times photographer Doug Mills has been documenting Hillary Clinton’s campaign this year, traveling with the candidate from state to state.
“Usually working about 16 to 18 to sometimes 19 hours a day,” Mills says in the video.
The 360° video gives a pretty interesting perspective on the often tight and slightly chaotic environments which Mills works. The shots from inside an airplane are and during one of Clinton’s rallies give you a particularly good idea of the complicated nature of photographing a presidential candidate. Of course it isn’t without its rewards.
“People say I have the greatest job in the world,” Mills says, “and sometimes it is hard to dispute that.”
