MAKE IT COUNT PHOTO SERIES – MIKE KERSHNAR

Throughout 2009, Kirk Dianda filmed and edited MAKE IT COUNT, The Element Story. The documentary is a four-part series, that tells the story of the iconic brand and the people that helped shape what it is today.

Element also released a 200-page photo book, which included a DVD of the film too, which sold out almost immediately. But if you missed it, FUEL TV will be airing the film as a 4-part series… Tune in, and check it out.

Throughout the production process, I was lucky enough to travel with Kirk while he interviewed this collection of truly inspiring people and shoot behind the scenes photos.

Mike Kershnar is a prolific and provocative creative. We recently spent some time with him up at the Element YMCA Skate Camp, where he co-founded Elemental Awareness, and was also a counselor. During our recent visit, he was painting a canvas on the side of the skate bowl, and it was a truly an inspiring experience to watch him paint.

Here are a collection of photos I shot of Kershnar in his studio in San Francisco, circa 2009.
