    Photography names

    Hey guys, as I'm starting to take everything a bit more serious with photography, I need a good name which shows proffesonalism, and sort of a cheesey name kind of thing. The type of events I generally cover is obviously motorsports, ( if you've seen some of my work! )

    I currently have iPhotoz which i like but I don't want anything to happen with apple having the name iPhoto in most there stuff. A few suggestions I made to myself were p1 photos, podium place photography (ppp) and slipstream imagery.

    Let me know if you have any types of suggestions (:

    thanks guys!

    I like P1, but I go for my own name as a business name.

    yeah I was thinking of getting an ABN soon. Maybe I should just use my name like you said until I get published a bit more?

    I use my name, I couldn't think of anything that was just right (the names I did pick were all taken!). That and I was worried if I picked something and then expanded my area the name might not suit. LOL

    But out of the examples you have given I'd probably go with P1 Photography.
    **Canon EOS 40D *** **Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM**Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L***Canon 580EX Speedlight**

    I'm here to learn, honest critique welcome on my photos unless otherwise stated.

    That sounds wise.


    Many people start by using a name that they eventually either outgrow, or worse, build a reputation using, and then eventually tackle the business name registration issues (which is a legal requirement in all states), and then find that the name they want (the name they've been using) cannot be registered, because of a variety of different reasons.


    I didnt move to a proper business name until I'd been shooting and selling my work for 22 years

    Make life easy for yourself, and just use your first and last name.

    The only problem with first / last name is if it is a difficult one to remember, pronounce or spell. Given that you will probably end up having a website with that name, it's important that people don't need a dictionary to find the site.
    My last name is Nicetin (and pronounced nothing like it!) ... needless to say I wouldn't use that in a business name!

    My hubby and I were talking about this earlier today as a new photography business has just started in our area and called themselves "My L e n s e"…cringe worthy.

    How about Fuel Fotos or Roar Images?

    I debated using my full name, Natalie Barovsky, as it is a bit long and quite often misspelled, so shortened it using first and last 3 letters of my name. Everyone has remembered Natsky which means referrals & google hits are much more likely.

    The cost of registering a business name is not huge per year…I pay more on insurance each month…but it may vary from state to state. Definitely worth checking out.

    all and any feedback welcome

    I use my initials and my Nanna's last name, because my actual name was already in use and that'd be confusing. As much as I loved the idea of using something meaningful and awesome as a business name, in the end I felt that using my name was easier, since people would call my by that name, rather than being unsure who they're talking to. Possibly a meaningless concern, but that was my reasoning (well, that and being unable to come up with a good enough name).
