Ever wanted to boss around a photographer, telling them where to go and what to shoot? Well here’s your chance.

On Tuesday I’ll serve for the first time in the role of Peoples’ Photographer.

Here’s how it will work:

Just like the People’s Reporter, I’m soliciting assignments from you and the rest of our readers. Tell me about the eyesore in your community that the rest of San Diego must see. Direct me to the important news that has gone unreported in the county. Think visually. Send me along assignments that are not only great stories, but stories that must be told with a camera.

I’ll filter through the messages for the best visual opportunities and then chronicle them throughout the day.

The photography will all take place on Tuesday, but I’ll be taking suggestions up until then.

Boss me around and let’s document San Diego together.

I’m a photojournalist at voiceofsandiego.org. You can contact me directly at sam.hodgson@voiceofsandiego.org or 619.550.5664.

    Also check out projects in neighboring canyons - Juniper, 32nd St, Florida, Normal Heights, Swan, and the efforts being driven by San Diego Canyonlands to link and improve them so they are local assets.

    What I'd really like to see is some investigative shooting of the metal scrap yards where thieves take stuff like sewer gratings, water meters, bus shelter trash cans and other pieces of obviously-not-really-surplus metal. I would imagine it's pretty dangerous to try to get access to these places though. Bring a large friend.

    On the upside, I'd like to see more photos of the beautiful canyons in the city, especially the ones in the inner city. They are underutilized and under-appreciated jewels and would like to see them get some positive publicity.
