• Who’s This Randy Dude?

    Well, that's me! I'm from East TN, married to the lovely Laura, have way too many kids (two of which are Active Military), and we live in Knoxville.

    On the photography side I have the coolest photography studio in Knoxville (ok, maybe I am a bit biased), have won several awards, teach a variety of photography classes & workshops, love working with kids, high school seniors, and families, and shoot a lot of sports (bad habit #3). My images have been published worldwide, including on two Sports Illustrated covers and many other national and international magazines and newspapers. I have photographed everything from newborns to underground mines to some very awesome images of kids and high school seniors, and yeah it's a blast!

    My goal is to produce stunning images of my subjects using creative backgrounds, a great relationship with my subjects, dramatic lighting, and awesome posing. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Joel Gillum - Good job on the pics. Even though Anderson County Lost they will be back this season; they are much better team then what showed. Just any given night you have to be ready.

More Football!!!

What can I say, I’m loving sports photography   What I didn’t expect was to learn as much as I am about some pretty technical photography stuff, especially some of the finer points involving ambient light and flashes. Yesterday I went to the Halls @ AC Freshmen and JV games to practice with a new […]

  • Tammy Netherton - Randy, I am really impressed with your football photos. You did an awesome job with them. Shooting prep football at night is difficult. I haven’t said so in the past but I am also gonna tell you here, I am really proud of you and your work with the soldiers and what you do for them with your OpLove photos. You are a fine photographer, and a great person to boot. Keep up the good work!

  • Memphis Photographer - You are a football nut! Great work!!!

AC vs. Halls Football

Friday I covered the Halls @ Anderson County Football game.

The staff at MaxPreps are great to work with, but this “shooting a […]

Facebook

Hello All!!! Facebook, Twitter, texting, Blackberries, iPhones, MySpace…all sort of makes “email” look like a rotary dial telephone.  Times sure are changing! Several months ago I  created a Facebook “group” for Randy Sartin Photography, which was not the right thing to do. I’ve finally created a proper “page” for us, located HERE. So please take […]
