200+ Personal Photography Names (& Ways to Come Up with Your Own)

What’s in a name? Actually, quite a lot when it comes to finding the ideal professional photography names for your business! If you’re just starting out, it may seem like all the best names are already taken, but we’ve put together this guide to help you find the right one for you.

Whether you are looking for a name for your photography business, a studio, or for Instagram branding, we’ve got to work to brainstorm over 200 names.

What Makes a Perfect Personal Photography Name?

When it comes to naming your photography business, simpler is usually better. The best idea is to have a name that makes it immediately clear to potential customers what it is you’re selling. With that in mind, let’s look at how to pick the best name for your brand.

Keep It Short

Long names aren’t always easy to remember, which is why trying to keep your name fairly short and snappy is the way to go. Also, consider what it will look like on a domain name for your website. For instance, allthingsbrightandbeautiful.com is long and takes much longer to type in a search bar than brightphoto.com.

So, although you may want a long, creative name, it’s best to stick to names that are from 1-3 words maximum.

How Does It Look and Sound?

Visual appeal doesn’t just apply to your photography. Your business name needs to look good and be easy to read when it’s on an invoice, website header, or business card.

It also needs to be easy to pronounce, and not sound weird or strange! Write or type out your potential brand name in different fonts and sizes to see how it looks. Next, try saying it out loud to make sure no one can misinterpret the name!

Appeal to Your Target Audience

If you know for sure you want to concentrate solely on food photography, for example, then having a niche name is a good idea. It will stand out to a specific target audience – in this case, the food and beverage industry.

However, if you’re not sure yet exactly what type of photography you want to specialize in, or you’re more of a general photographer, then don’t tie yourself to a niche. Instead, keep the name more focused on photography as a whole than a specific genre.

So, let’s get down to business! We’ve grouped names into specific categories according to the type of photography they apply to.

How to Come Up with More Great Personal Photography Names

There you have it! The names in the list above were made partly with business name generators, a great starting point for crafting your own name. It is worth noting though, that a name generator’s name will probably require tweaking as they’re usually too long, strange, or clunky.

Another method is using an online thesaurus to find different words that mean the same thing and applying that to your name creation. Here are a few more tips to help you come up with a stellar photography name:

  • Use rhyming words as a way to help people remember. Using the same letter at the start of each word is also a good way of creating a catchy-sounding name, such as Clay’s Camera Collective
  • Try to find a way to inject some humor into your business name – humorous names are memorable and often raise a smile!
  • If you plan to shoot in a specific photography niche, like weddings or food, then use words in the name to make this clear. Hopefully the examples above will help inspire you!
  • Use words that refer to the tools of your trade – lenses, tripods, camera, flashgun, etc. This will help people to realize immediately what sort of business you run
  • Get your friends and family to help. Have a naming party where everyone gets to float their ideas.
  • Last but not least – if you’re stuck and want to keep it simple – just use your own name. You want everyone to know who you are, after all!
