Indy Shutterbugs

Anita Reyes

At The Indy, the bulk of making things pretty is handled by our staff photographer Paul Wellman (center), whom you might find shooting portraits in the morning, covering court trials in the afternoon, riding his bike to shoot breaking news around sunset, and then scrambling in front of the Bowl’s stage to snap the latest pop superstar. And in 2007, Wellman had plenty of help, both from the dependable David Bazemore (right), who’s covered cultural events around Santa Barbara for years, and from backcountry legend Ray Ford (left), who joined the paper this year as our outdoors editor and caught many scenes from the Zaca Fire with his camera. So as you’re enjoying this week’s Year in Pictures edition, you’re basically looking at Santa Barbara from the perspective of these guys. Tell ’em thanks next time.
