Discounted Portraits from Colby's Photography
As marketers, you know first impressions are crucial. You also know the first content viewers absorb is the visual content. What does your business portrait say about you? Or rather, what should it be saying?
Colby McLemore with Colby’s Photography, our organization's exclusive photography sponsor, is offering discounted business portraits for our members to help you make a great first impression! Colby is a commercial/advertising photographer who approaches portraits from the customers’ perspective. Pretty pictures are nice, but effective images do more. Many of the board members have already had their business portraits taken by Colby. You can read some of their testimonials below. Colby is offering retouched business portraits for 25% off. This includes three files of one portrait – one geared for internet use, one for social media, and one for prints up to 4 inches. Contact Colby to schedule your appointment or to ask any questions.
"There are a number of words to describe Colby, but just a few would be thorough, detail-oriented, professional and passionate. He's a true craftsman when it comes to photography, and ensures a fantastic experience from start to finish, and beyond! I recently had a portrait done at his studio, and he made the entire process painless and enjoyable, even from the beginning as he helped set expectations for the day of the shoot. His focus on quality and customer satisfaction is refreshing in a time when I find those two things are much more rare than they used to be. I was pleased with the experience, the final product and the communication - he hit the trifecta from downtown (literally)!"
- Daniel Monday, AMA Knoxville President
"Colby can do it all: events, portraits, advertisements - you name it. He has blown me away with how he always goes the extra mile for clients, even when it's volunteer work! He's not satisfied until you're satisfied. Colby expertly combines old-school photography techniques with new digital methods. When he's photographing an event, he puts the crowd at ease, feeling more like an old friend than a paid photographer, which has resulted in him capturing some of the most gorgeous, candid photos I have ever seen. I highly recommend Colby. He has the technical prowess, the old-school knowledge, and the digital age adaptability that make his photographs the works of art that they are."
