It’s not often that Photography Editor Paul Wellman hires an intern, so when he does, you can be sure the new charge sports some serious chops. Enter Mike Clark, former photo editor for SBCC’s student newspaper, The Channels, who lent The Santa Barbara Independent a hand and eye this summer by covering everything from the Fiesta Rodeo to breaking news to restaurants. Clark, who hails from Washington, D.C., is on his way to Western Kentucky University to major in photojournalism, a passion he picked up five years ago when he bought his first digital SLR camera to travel across Europe. “One of the things I like most about it,” Clark said of taking pictures for a living, “is I get to meet interesting people and do interesting things. I’m always learning something new, and I like all of it. Every day is different.”
