    heart Photography Business Name Suggestions?

    I was looking for business name suggestions after I realized that another company already has the name, Tarzan Photography. So I am going to have to pick a different business name. One that hasn't been used before. Any suggestions?

    I know what you mean.

    I know what you mean. I cant even use my actual God given name because there is someone with the same name as me, one letter different, and she has a studio. I was like come on now really. Hope you come up with something.

    Post a some facts about yourself?
    What sets your business apart from the competition?
    What is your focus?

    Business names can be a personal thing too... kinda hard to work with a blank slate. This is especially true since you are a relatively new member here (Welcome btw)

    Really generic suggestions:
    * <town/township/city> Photography
    * <last name> Photography (not a big fan of these for various reasons)
    * <focus name> Photography (ex: Kitty/Doggie Portraits)
    <exits stage left>

    Do a promotion on-line, using two different prospective names....Mike Lemowicz (spelling) of TPF a few months ago worked on a logo using his name and some graphics...then he did a test...seems like BusyBee Photo,with a cutesy,kind of whimsical logo, drew HUGE amounts of response, where at the same time, the identical promo under his hard-work-and-loads-of-sweat-equity name and graphic logo drew almost zero interest...he switched studio names immediately...so...

    He was really amazed at how the cutesy name with the cartoon honeybee drew mega-response. Not sure what specialty areas you're into, but women control the majority of family photography booking, delivery of families and hubbies, and buying of prints...

    I'd be real glad someone else got the Tarzan monicker before me, or, do you swing through the trees screaming at the clients, Amber photography has a certain ring to it, or Amber studios, you can't really go wrong with your name. H

    Use your name.

    I'll never understand why people think they have to come up with a Facebook-worthy name for a one person operation.
