Thank you again for your continued and remarkable support!

I don’t feel that it’s a bit redundant to say that it’s an honor to win this award. As the winner of Knoxville’s best photographer in AAF’s 2015 Big Wig Awards, I am more than grateful for your show of support. I thank you for taking time to vote. You’ve honored me with this award for three years in a row—2015, 2014 and 2013. And the real honor for me is getting to know you and my clients and to be allowed to step inside the world of your businesses, advertisements, and industries.

All my work doesn’t take place behind a camera. When preparing for a shoot, I like to dig in and discover what it is my clients’ customers connect with. I visually and emotionally concentrate on making those connections. What a joy to establish relationships and to be in ongoing conversations with people! I am happiest delivering exceptional images as well as personalized service to my clients—no matter if it is creating 50 headshots, spending a day photographing in the rain, working in the studio, focusing on architectural details, capturing the flavor of food, or bringing to life any of your advertising needs.

In Knoxville, we are blessed with a rich marketing and advertising community. We get to collaborate with a wealth of talented individuals. Fellow photographers, art directors, writers, account managers, techies, social media gurus, and business managers all come together to represent Knoxville as a colorful, creative city. I am most grateful to be a part of this community as well as being recognized with such an award.




“Colby made my first portrait experience a hug success! I needed a head shot for a feature film audition with a tight deadline and Colby made it happen. The final product exceeded my expectations and got me the role in the film ‘Unsung the Forgotten.’ Thanks again, Colby!” – Timothy Carr
