I possess sufficient photography skills to take most of the photographs for your print collateral or website. This keeps your costs down. If you are able to provide your own photos (at a suitable size and in a suitable format), excellent. Thinking of comissioning some photographs of your event either for promotional purposes or so your participants can obtain photos of themselves in action. Think of Yeatman.
Being hands on, I built my own light box to take photos of small items.
