    Gaby Esensten has been our film & photography intern for the Spring 2012 semester. She’s an amazing photographer/videographer who shot our Spring School’s Out lookbook, most of our product shots, some amazing cleanups, and so much more.

    This past thursday was her last day with us as she leaves to go on and shoot for George Watsky while he goes on tour. We can’t wait to see the amazing photographs and videos she makes! 

    We get some incredible interns at UBB. Meet some of our past interns, and learn more about United By Blue’s Internship Program.
