Any thoughts? <<

Whatever you do, do not say this! Photograph copyrights belong to the
photographer -- not the subject of the photo, unless it was a

If the "photos lying around" were taken of the employees for the
company, you can say the company owns the photo.

The only blanket statement that would suffice for all photos would be:
"Photographs supplied by Olan Mills, Inc.; John Doe Photography; and
XYZ Corporation."

This way you wouldn't have to put a credit line next to each photo.

If the photographer is unknown, you're not covered in your ignorance;
however it would be the photographer's fault for not putting his or
her name on the back of the photo if he or she doesn't receive credit.
