Primary night is always an "all hands on deck" kind of night and I was happy to get the call to cover one of the 'Victory Parties' this go around.  I had requested Bernie Sanders, not because of my personal preferences, but because I had yet to cover him during this process.

Access was tight and limited once we were corralled back to the media area.  A fellow photographer had left a step stool in the middle of the area, so I made use of that while she shot from a different section.  When she returned, she was happy to share it with me.  It's comforting to see photographers working together instead of against each other, and I was thankful she helped me out.  Despite being on the taller side, it would have been difficult to shoot over the supporters and their sign.  I managed to grab a handful of decent shots of the candidate from a few different angles.  My favorite being one where he paused to soak in the applause, framed by supporter signs:

My single favorite image from the night was of this youngster being held up by his dad while a nearby supporter held up a "A FUTURE TO BELIEVE IN" sign.  it wasn't perfectly framed but it was the shot I wanted.

Supporters of all ages turned out to celebrate Bernie Sanders' victory in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night at Concord High School.
