Starting a Photography Business

Being a photographer is no easy business; it takes a true artist to capture the emotion of the moment and take pictures that will make people smile for years to come. Oh, and of course it also requires an amazing camera and a lot of other expensive gear.

If you have what it takes to start a photography business, wonderful! When it comes to a business in photography, you can either have a home-based business or you can have an actual brick-and-mortar location. Either way, you'll need a name. You don’t just want to pick any name, though; you want something that people will easily remember but is still unique and will make you stand out from the competition.

Read on for ideas for how to choose the perfect name for your business.

Brainstorming Photography Studio Names

Here are a few tips for brainstorming photography name ideas:

  • Use humor. Things that make people laugh tend to be easily remembered. Using a bit of humor in your name will go a long way!
  • Use your name. Especially if you have a name that is easily rhymed. You are the artist and owner, so everyone should know who you are!

  • Use rhymes. Using rhyming words is a catchy way to help people remember you.

  • Keep it simple. Using words that are difficult to pronounce or spell will make it difficult for people to say or remember your name.

  • Use your specialty. If you plan on specializing in a certain area (such as weddings or maternity shoots), use words in your name that will make this obvious!

  • Use common sense. There are many, many photographers around and they are all your competition. Know their names and choose something that stands out from the rest!

  • Use your tools. Using words that refer to your tools (such as your tripod or camera) will help passersby realize what type of business you are.

Picking a business name is a task that should not be taken lightly; in fact, you should put a lot of time into picking a name that will truly benefit your new business. Remember, standing out from your competition is key.

Get Name Ideas from Friends & Family

The names above are all excellent examples of names for photography businesses, but perhaps you are still having a tough time deciding on a name.

A great option is to ask friends and family for inspiration. Ask them what they think you're good at, what adjectives come to mind when they think of your work, and for any other ideas they might have.

If you’re really having trouble naming your business, consider these other ideas for helping you make up your mind:

  • Naming party: Throw a party to get ideas from friends and family. Add drinks into the mix and you’re bound to come up with something good! Don’t have too many drinks though, and be sure to keep a pen and paper on hand!

  • Survey: If you have a computer, you have access to amazing technology; use it. There are websites where you can create surveys to fish for ideas, and there is also a vast world of social networking polling options, all right at your fingertips!

  • Design a logo: Maybe you have a logo idea in mind, but no name yet. Try putting that logo onto paper and see if that sparks ideas. Combining your logo with different names will help you decide!
  • Coin toss: Maybe you are stuck between just two names and it’s really eating away at you; why not flip a coin?

Deciding on a Name

When thinking of photography name ideas, do not worry if nothing sounds good right away.

Do you give up taking pictures when you cannot get that perfect shot? No, you don’t.

Take your time. You shouldn't settle for anything less than perfect.

When was the last time you hired a professional photographer?

  • Senior portraits
  • Engagement pictures
  • Wedding day
  • Maternity pictures
  • Birth announcements
  • Christmas cards
  • Business related photos
  • I've never hired a photographer.
