Here is a guy who did a pretty good synopsis of Dayton 2019. No interviews, but a really well done documentary of who was there.
has some highlights from the November 2013 Lebanon, MO, hamfest that also was the ARRL Midwest convention.
The big names in the ham video world have already been mentioned, lots of really great content out there from Burt, Gary and others. I will make a plug for DLabs, more geared towards antique radios/electronics but very enjoyable content. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRs15W2eE8Ugg4kXxOz0hSQ. His videos were so good, I was strongly considering driving to Michigan for the July event (plus a detour to the see the remains of The SS Edmund Fitzgerald) but COVID stopped that, maybe in 2022.
Just Google "Hamfest photos" and you may have to pick and choose unless you want to spend a huge amount of time watching. Several pages of results.
Mike Whatley (no relation to me) was a professional camera man for NBC news, and he filmed several events, even running a ham station live while filming the John Hinckley Jr. trial in Washington D.C. and he has a web page that might have archives on it. Last time I was there he had interesting pics of his military service in VietNam. He was a camera pro with good equipment. I haven't been there in a while so it might be reorganized or buried or missing at this point, but you could always ask.
Burt has a certain subsurface, acrimonious flair that endears him to so many of us!
Love his interviews. They are a gift.
Nick England has lots of great hamfest photos.
I knew Mike pretty well when he lived here in the National Capitol Region.
