Naming is the creation and development process of a brand name. And in a photographer’s or creative photographer’s business, the decision of choosing your brand name is very important. It is an opportunity to make yourself stand out as a photographer of your area or country and to offer a value proposition that makes you unique. There are lots of you, as professionals, who choose to create original names for your photography business and website. In this article we are going to present a selection of names of photographers and creative photographers.
Incidentally, at Arcadina, you can create your new website with whatever name you like. In addition, the domain is included in all of our plans. So we encourage you to think of something different and original. You will be able to create your photography website in less than 5 minutes (14 day free trial and with no obligation to purchase).
Personal naming is widely used in photography
It’s clear that, in the photography sector, many of you opt for Personal naming. It is very common to use the name of the founding photographer of the brand directly on your website, who is usually well-known in their area, province and even country. This is the case with Maru Serra, AgustínMarín… and we could add thousands more to the list. A common alternative of ‘personal naming’ is that you focus just on the first name or surname, or on a pseudonym, if this makes you more unique and identifiable. This is the case with JMGrimaldi, Fotorodolfo or Caliq.
Others opt for descriptive naming, where the name of the website clearly describes your photography service directly. Sometimes also encouraged by the issue of better positioning your websites on search engines, this all makes sense. Examples of names of photographers: OliverFotografo or SalvaFotografos.
Another more original naming comes from adding various words together or exaggerating them and transforming them into acronyms to form a new one. Examples of names of photographers: ArteFoto or NovaFoto.
Creative naming makes the difference
But now more than ever before, creative naming is in fashion, think of an unusual, funny name which stands out and breaks moulds. Many photographers take advantage of a name to carry out direct marketing for their photography business, with something original, where their brand is recognised, and they have a special hook for their customers.
At Arcadina, our minds are always working in overdrive thinking of something new and we focus on creative naming in particular. But now it’s your time, we present some of the most creative names to you that some of our users have chosen to name their businesses. All of these names have become more than that, they have become well known photography business brands. Look at how original these names are for photography websites:
