Our Best Fest Photos

A Constantly Updated Slideshow of Paul Wellman’s Photographs

Red carpets at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival can be a photographer’s heaven or a shooter’s nightmare, depending on one’s sensibilities and aspirations. For Indy photographer Paul Wellman, they’re a little bit of both: perfect opportunities to snap shots of some of the world’s most famous people, but hectic and competitive enough to make him dream of red wine and his couch.

Nonetheless, we feel he gets the best shots of anyone covering the festival, so we’re dedicating this space to present a slideshow of Paul Wellman’s best photos. And remember to keep coming back to this spot, because Wellman will be updating the photos constantly. So without further adieu, here are Wellman’s top shots from the entire fest.
