About True Grip & Lighting


True-Grip-and-Lighting-Sideline-Camera-CartTrue Grip & Lighting is owned by 7-time Emmy-Award-Winning cameraman Corky Corcoran. Corky is a Knoxville native who is proud to make his home and his company’s home in East Tennessee. After graduating from Fulton High School in 1981 with dreams of working as a television cameraman for ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Corky took a job as a cameraman at WBIR television. He spent the next 20 years in television with ESPN doing NASCAR coverage. Having discovered he was skilled at setting up stages, cameras, and lighting during his time as a cameraman, Corky decided to start his own company.

Today, True Grip & Lighting does everything from local events in and around Knoxville to setups for internationally televised events like the Superbowl and ESPN’s College Gameday. We have grown into a nationally known company through a commitment to providing quality products and services to the film, television, and entertainment industries. Whether you need lighting and production equipment for a local or national event, we want to be your resource for sideline camera carts, mobile stages, grip equipment, lighting, and anything else your production may need.
