I would have something more like this:

Except where otherwise noted, photos included in this publication are the
personal property of the individuals pictured. All photos are used with
the permission of their respective owner or copyright holder.

As others have suggested, getting permission to use those done by a
professional studio is a good idea, and probably not that difficult,
especially if this is a non-commercial project (you didn't mention what
sort of project it is - internal company directory, or...?) Those
pictures could then be given a simple, small caption: (c) 19xx Bob Smith

Worst-case scenario, someone must have a relative who's an aspiring photog
who would be happy to come in and shoot pictures of those people whose
submitted shots' copyright is questionable. Pay him a little something
for his time and materials, make sure he signs over the copyrights, and
everybody wins: you have the pictures you need, and your shutterbug has
something to add to his portfolio.
