I don't know if I'm looking to start a full-fledged business (let alone if I even can), but I'm starting to get people asking me for my website, asking to buy photos as stock, etc.

"eppb.myphotos.cc" (or what I rather plainly call "eppb.photos") is what I currently have, but it's... lame. I literally host this website on a computer in my bedroom with dynamic DNS :lol: I need something fresh and presentable that I can make a real domain name out of ([something].com)

What did you choose to name your photography website / biz / services and why?

I wanted a name that would have meaning and reflect my "business model" of providing high quality imagery that's affordable. So I chose the name of Apex which means "The highest point or summit" in reference to the quality of work I strive to give my clients.

If you look in your yellow pages or on the internet for your area, you'll notice a majority go with using their own name in some form. I started out with Echo Photography, but I am finding that it's easier to use my name. I'm able to use a "personal" banking account as opposed to a business account which has fees for everything. Also, a lot of my customers are word of mouth. My friends know my name but can't seem to remember Echo. Pretty easy name, I thought. Plus, your name is more likely to be available for a web site name.

I've had a business prior to this. One thing to consider is if you ever want to sell the business, do you want someone else to have use of YOUR name.
