Focused on what’s important for your company. Corporate event photographers or videographers must use a different strategy for non-business events. Colby’s Photos & Videos does not apply a cookie-cutter approach where they are wasting time covering the food or other frivolous elements. Their photography stands out because they focus on what is essential to the objectives of your particular event. For example, ribbon cuttings would have a different focus than a fund-raiser.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – KNOXVILLE CORPORATE EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR CONVENTION AND TRADESHOW PHOTOS AND OTHER EVENTS
How much do you charge for business event photography and videography?
It depends on which options you choose and how long we are at the event. In just a short discussion, we can determine which options are the best fit for you and also give you an accurate idea of the investment.
How far in advance do I need to schedule you?
My team is made up of full-time professionals and we can accommodate almost any date or time. However, since you’re planning your event, it’s best to reach out to us early so we have time to coordinate.
What is your turnaround time?
We can accommodate just about any turnaround time. We can even print the photos onsite so attendees can take home souvenirs from your event. Also, we can socially stream the images for immediate use of the photos. Typical turnaround times for most events is seven days for every two hours of the company event. We often provide a handful of images you request within 24 hours for press release purposes but can be quicker if needed. Again, if you need them sooner, we can make it happen.
Will you disrupt or slow down our company event?
Absolutely not. Our team of Knoxville corporate event photographers and technicians wear darker, matching clothes so we don’t stand out. We are also very experienced at moving through crowds without disturbing participants at corporate events such as ribbon cuttings, business anniversaries, and more. Additionally, if you’ve requested posed shots, we time them so that we don’t interfere with the flow of the event.
Do you take posed and candid shots?
Yes. We’ll work with you in advance of your event to create a plan for getting the images you want. Also, we can do natural-looking posed shots and we have the skills to nail the harder-to-get candid photos as well. We have the timing skills and telephoto lenses to capture images without even being seen.
Do you do events outside of Knoxville?
Yes, I am a Knoxville corporate event photographer, but I also do corporate event photography throughout the state, including in Nashville and Chattanooga.
Who will be working the event?
Often it is Colby McLemore himself. Depending on the scope of the job, he may need the assistance of additional professionals. Occasionally, if Colby has a conflict, it will be a member of his team who is a skilled Knoxville business event photographer whose quality Colby stands behind. In these cases, barring an emergency, you will be informed beforehand.
Can you provide headshot services during our event?
Yes, many clients want us to do portraits during their conventions or conferences because it is a convenient time when everyone is together. Also, many clients who work tradeshows like the attention they get by providing professional portraits to participants, as well as easily gathering their contact information.
What percentage of your events are corporate events?
One hundred percent. We don’t do weddings or private parties. We specialize in professional events. Therefore, if you need content for tradeshows, ribbon cuttings, or company events, we are your expert team.
Are you used to working with creative teams and marketing departments?
Yes, we love the support and teamwork that this type of project entails. A corporate event photographer or videographer should always be able to easily collaborate with others, and we can.
How long do you keep the photos you take?
After delivering the final images, we back up and archive all the selected and delivered images, while all discarded images are deleted. We also strive to keep multiple backups of all final selections. Unfortunately, technology does fail from time to time. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to recover images forever. We strongly suggest that you also keep digital copies of your pictures in a safe, easy-to-find place. If at a later date you would like us to recover the images, there is a digital management fee.
What happens if there’s an unexpected issue, such as someone on your team getting sick on the day of my event?
We anticipate problems. We have contingency plans in place for almost any incident that might happen at business events. On every occasion so far, we have been able to acquire a qualified corporate event photographer and videographer to fill in the gap when needed.
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes. We provide a copy to every client.
Do you charge sales tax?
Rarely. Another Knoxville business event photographer might produce tangible products necessitating a sales tax in Tennessee. However, if you need onsite printing, there will be a sales tax charge, which is outlined in the estimate.
How do we pay?
You can pay online with almost any type of credit card. You can also send a check through the mail.
