The secret diary of an election photographer - Day 23

Oh boy, computer problems again. Nice to see a pic of mine getting a big spread in the Guardian but less pleased that they 'forgot' to credit it.

A very busy day for Nick started with interviews at the Work Foundation - our press conference venue - followed by a short trip to Bush House for an interview with BBC Radio London's Vanessa Feltz.

Then back to the Work Foundation for more interviews - including one with the Evening Standard's panel of voters - and to record an short film for an Operation Black Vote rally in the evening which, due to other commitments, Nick was unable to attend in person.

Then it was onto the bus for the trip to Oxford. On the way Nick had a series of interviews including one with Matthew Engel of the FT - formerly the Editor of Wisden - and another with the Times' Michael Atherton, formerly England's cricket captain. A quick word about Athers - he's a really nice chap who was more than happy to accommodate all the requests for photos from the many cricket nuts on the bus.

In Oxford, Nick met Steve Goddard, our candidate for Oxford East and took questions from the students at Oxford Brookes university.

Back on the bus we headed for Birmingham in anticipation of the final leaders' debate.
