Steve Brightwell is a professional photographer with thirty years of experience specializing in professional photography. He has been a family friend and we always enjoy seeing him at various music festivals held in West Virginia such as Clifftop and the Vandalia Gathering. We consider him the “World’s Greatest Photographer” that is declared by our bother and his former manager each time we see him. He is skilled in business portraiture, commercial – advertising photography and wedding coverage and includes a broad background in state government public relations, with experience from the West Virginia Office of the Governor, the West Virginia Legislature and the WV Department of Arts, Culture and History.
The images here are those he took of us at the 2022 Appalachian String Band festival when Cindy Harris (teacher and champion) and her friend stopped by our campsite to jam with us and talk Autoharp. The rest of the pictures he took are located at the WV Department of Arts, Culture and History website.
