Barry Brecheisen’s entertainment photography appears regularly in every major magazine including Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and People to name just a few. Known first and foremost as a rock ’n’ roll photographer, Barry was the photo editor for RollingStone.com from 1998-2001 and the touring photographer for Lollapalooza in 2003. From then until the present, he has shot practically every famous rock star that has toured since the late 90s. From legends like Ray Charles, Paul McCartney, James Brown, Madonna, The Rolling Stones, The Who and the mega-stars like Radiohead, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse. These days he is a highly in-demand freelancer working out of Chicago for PR companies, magazines and wire services sending him traveling all over the country. Barry Brecheisen has been shooting for the Telluride Blues and Brews since 2006 and continues to be a part of our family.
With a career that spans nearly three decades, Dino Perucci is a seasoned photographer whose talent has earned him the acclaim of musicians and music lovers alike. Based out of NYC and serving as the house photographer for the newly reopened Capitol Theatre in Portchester, NY, Dino holds this position at several other venues including BB Kings Blues Club + Grill, the Blue Note Jazz Club New York, The Highline Ballroom NYC, and Tipitina’s in New Orleans. Dino has been a staff photographer at Blues & Brews since 2006.
David Craig's creative expression turned to the visual arts as well nearly 20 years ago. He prefers painting and while anything can be fodder for his canvas, Craig finds portraits to be the most fascinating. His recent work is a series of blues singers including Tab Benoit, Billie Holiday, Etta James and Professor Longhair. "Fess" was the signature image created for the 2012 Bogalusa Blues & Heritage Festival's tribute to the late, great, Louisiana music legend. Craig was also honored when his portrait of “Gatemouth” Brown, a personal gift to his manager, was chosen to grace the cover of what turned out to be “Gatemouth’s” last cd, “Timeless”. Returning to the Festival for his second year as our poster artist, David Craig presents to you, Telluride. His poster will be available for purchase in our Merchandise Tent during the festival weekend. David will be in person for poster signing in the festival store from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.
For the past 25 years, Keith 'Scramble' Campbell has recorded the vibe of music in colorful and spirited paintings. His astounding body of work encompasses not only a who’s who of musical legends but some of the most popular emerging talent in live music today. Scramble's work has crossed the boundaries of musical genres and has been the centerpiece of world-renowned festivals, concerts exhibits and special events. Telluride Blues & Brews is excited to welcome back 'Scramble' to the Festival! Scramble will be painting to the tunes all weekend at the festival. Keep an eye out for him and be sure to come by to say hello, admire his art, or even buy a "live" painting!
