Behind the Scenes: Mark Kersey

Extra shots from our January "10 Big Ideas for San Diego" feature


City Councilman Mark Kersey met up with our photography crew downtown on the corner of Market and 5th on a warm 80 degree December day. That's right, it was temperature high in the afternoon, the sun was blazing, he was dressed in a nice shoot and tie, and I wanted him to stand in fresh hot tar for a photo. I had a vision for his photograph in our January "10 Big Ideas for San Diego" feature story. His big idea is to fix the backlog in the city's infrastructure maintance and I wanted to photograph him in the middle of the street repair. He was a trooper and stepped right in, literally. Here are a few extra shots, and read about his big idea and see the final image we loved, in our January feature here.
