What the Industry Says

"The northwest meet-and-greets and artist parties were known for more than just a fun way to get closer to our artists.  It was because of photographer Darrell Westmoreland and his "six-gun" shooting  technique that artists and guests were treated to the professionalism and panache of Darrell. I hired Darrell for nearly every event. Whether it was Stevie Ray Vaughan, pearl Jam or Ozzy osbourne. Darrell captured the history of northwest musical events like no other."

-Debi Lipetz, former Sony BMG Record Rep

"No one captured the history of Northwest Rock-n-Roll like Darrell Westmoreland!  His "in your face cameras" added to any event in spectacular fashion.  But he could also back off and quietly shoot great images while no one was aware.  His chronology of Seattle Rock has and will stand the test of time forever.  Our home has many pieces of Darrell’s exceptional work with my mug in many with superstars. His true gift is his unmistakable clear eye that saw his subjects in a unique and special way."

 -Gary Crow Rock and Roll DJ since 1972, Seattle 

"I’ve had the opportunity to work with “D” for over 20 years in the Northwest, from Z100 in Portland to KISW and KUBE 93 here in Seattle!  Darrell has the unique talent of making his subjects feel so very comfortable.“Get in!  Get the Shot!  Get Out!” is how I always described him. His energy is contagious!  He would set up a shot for us backstage, in the matter of a few seconds he had snapped 10 or so shots and when the flashes went off, everyone in the frame was visibly excited. No phony “CHEESE” … PURE SHOWBIZ!"

-Gus Swanson, CBS Radio 

"Many artists don't like doing photos after a show but Darrell had a way of putting them at ease."

- Stan Foreman, Capitol Records
