How did you get the name for your photography business?

Hey everyone,

Although I'm still at the point where photography is just a hobby for me, I'm looking at setting up a website of some sort and would like it to look professional. To do this I figure I should have a name of some sort for my "company". I've thought of just incorporating my last name into it but that seems a bit unoriginal. I still may still go with that idea but I'm trying to come up with some other ideas as well so I just don't go with my first idea for lack of something better to choose.

So how did most of you come up with your names?

hehe, guess I'm un-original. Not a professional by any standard, but my last name and photography.

Another non-professional here.

Yet, still struggling with a name - as a magazine wants to buy 2 of my photos but need a website link or company name!

Thinking of 'Fai'! As that's half my first name - and in Arabic "Fai" means "The good shadow"!

Also, thought of "A 1000 words" but not surprisingly, it was taken!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has/is struggling with this simple task.

LOL. You're enjoying our suffering? Thanks!!



I don't think it's simple at all! (and I do brand naming for a living!!) but I think a photography business is very personal and very tricky.

Have more than 20 options lined up - and I know I will eventually settle for option 20! (my family name! LOL)

LOL....Oh I know what you mean. I mean even after all of this I will probably end up back at the family name thing too.
