For “centuries” now artists have struggled to separate themselves from the next. These days, with over population and all, its even more difficult. We have lots of competition, too many similar styles, websites, portfolios, concepts, names, reps, ideas, business cards and just not enough jobs. There’s also only so much room for LEGENDS like Avedon, Newton, Arbus, Penn, Etc… So some photographers have already resorted to branding themselves with LOGOS and TAGLINES. Let see what our photography community has come up with.
First of all, some taglines I’ve seen float around the internet (not saying that I like ’em all…but food for thought):
Celebrating Childhood in Photographs
Photography for Life
capturing life……as it happens
Let your true colours shine though
Capturing the story of your life, one chapter at a time
It’s like photography. But more fun.
photos you’ll love….with memories for life
Photography moments captured…..naturally
Because Life is Beautiful
Capturing moments from today…Creating memories for a lifetime
Capturing the moments that captivate your heart
Because every picture tells a story…….let me help you tell yours
Focusing on your moments, your life.
Shoot the inlaws, frame the wife, hang the kids”
Focusing on your moments, your life
My Mom Shoots People
Your Day is a Love Story…Tell it to the Camera
memories in a snap
Love looks like this
your life in print
Because you want to remember forever
Capturing life with natural light photography
Okay enough of the taglines, let’s see some logos:
That’s my marketing research for today. Design is important- especially for a visual community like ours. Which one is your favorite? Do you have a tagline and logo? How competitive are you with your marketing strategies. I’d like you guys to send in some logos and taglines you’ve created and I will post them next week. Hope this inspired you!!
Please send taglines and logos to alex@http://resourcemagonline.com
Last week I posted some photo related tattoos and got a couple photos back:
Richard Avedon on Dan Depew:
And a Canon AE-1 “(the first camera that sparked my interest in photography). It also says say cheese on the camera strap. It was done in the traditional tattoo style.” on Danielle Davis:
Thanks for sharing guys- awesome tattoos!!
I’d also like to thank Scott Bourne for an incredible mention…I’m blushing Scott!! Check out his blog and this article!
See you next week!
