Peter Vandenbelt

“It was incredible to see and listen to people responsible for my favorite films,” said photo intern Peter Vandenbelt, who covered the red carpet at most every event of the 2014 Santa Barbara International Film Festival for us. Peter works on his “picture a day” project along with his major in environmental studies at UCSB when he isn’t otherwise occupied lending his camera talents to The Santa Barbara Independent on sports, news, and portrait assignments. A native of Mercer Island outside Seattle, Washington, this huge sports fan is planning to head home after graduation and dreams of landing a job shooting the Mariners and the Seahawks. But for now, he’s a star on our team.
