    Colby McLemore takes us on a journey to find love in a relationship we struggle with, our blog. 

    Being a Kick A** Blogger Is Easier than You Think!

    Everyone knows that you should be doing it but few actually are. Why should I blog? I can’t imagine anyone actually reads them! How do you even GET people to read them? I stink at grammar, so it would be embarrassing, right?! What would I write about? I had ALL these questions and MORE. After finding the answers, I also found a way to systematize it so it became easier and easier to get them done. Blogging can make all the other marketing ideas come together and be more EFFECTIVE and EASIER to implement! If you want to make your marketing work, you can’t afford NOT to blog.

    About Colby

    Colby McLemore is the owner and visual storyteller of Colby’s Photos & Videos.

Colby works around marketers and advertisers every day. He attends as many of their trade meetings locally, regionally, and nationally as possible. He has been on the board of the American Marketing Association of Knoxville and the American Advertising Federation of Knoxville for years. Surrounding himself with the best professionals within the industry, even Colby picks up a tip or two. Within the marketing industry he is considered an advanced enthusiast; among local photographers, he is considered over the top. He has earned his Master’s, Craftsman, CPP, and Certified Drone Photographer. He loves letters behind his name and is trying to get a few more. Colby has won more awards than he feels he deserves but a lot fewer than many. He was in the Top Ten of the Grand Imaging Award in the commercial category but lost. He’s squeaked out a Gold Triangle, an ASP State Award, Fuji Award, Kodak Award and all the cool ones at his local and state affiliates. He blasts his horn about them from the top of Knoxville’s tallest building. To learn more about Colby and to see examples of his work, visit his outdated website at www.colbysphotosvideos.com.

    It's that time of year!

    This is one of our favorite and most popular events. This year we are changing it up and going to the center of the state (instead of the beach).

    Grab the family, a dish to pass and gather in the park, relax and enjoy some food. Then grab your camera as top photographers capture each others' family photos. (Don't lie, you know it's time to update your family photos.)

    This is a MEMBERS ONLY event. Log in to register. Registration ahead of time is a must in order to account for the right amount of food.

    URBAN SAFARI SHOOTOUT with Edward Westwood, M. Photog.

    Come and join me for an afternoon of fun, adventure, and photography!

    We’ll visit some of my favorite spots to create portraits in Detroit. Everything from scenic park settings to grungy industrial and graffiti settings.

    I’ll cover lighting with OCF, “finding the light” suitable for portraits, posing, and analyzing what makes a good spot for creating a portrait.

    BRING YOUR GEAR!!! I would like everyone to shoot during this program. I’ll find a spot, setup a portrait, cover some lighting and posing, create a portrait, then let all of you go at it and photograph. I’ll have lights we all can use, but, if we do any HHS then you’ll have to bring lights that work for you.

    This will be a very fun and interactive afternoon/evening. I will have some models, but if you have someone in particular you’d like to bring.....let me know.

    This a PPA Continuing Education event providing current PPA members a merit for attending.
