For nearly 50 years, Darrell Westmoreland of Montesano, WA has photographed some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry - like Tom Petty, Steven Tyler and Dolly Parton - and gotten to personally hang out with them! It's a career most people dream of, and it all started in high school when he was asked to shoot for a local newspaper. "I got an assignment to cover a rock festival in 1971," he said. "Steve Miller was there, and that was basically my introduction into the music scene."
