Um. I think you're supposed to post the card, your post just comes off as an advertisement

Very perceptive! Business cards *are* indeed advertisements. Why I'd advertise to other photographers is beyond comprehension, but to each his own. <shrug>

Chris, well done. You're hired! I especially like the gear list at the bottom. :)

I can't stop laughing about that one.
Just tickled my warped sense of humor.

Omg I'm such an idiot, what you posted was what you put on your business card! Well that makes a little more sense, I guess.

What someone else posted wasnt, but she was saying that info is what she put on her cards. Like I said, makes a LITTLE more sense

I would add the orange, it would look good contrasted against the black and add a bit of visual interest.

Matt, I like the simple style - but I think the black is too dominant. Personal opinion of course, dropping it back to an 80-90% black looks much better IMO. :) Good luck either way.

I would try more of a grey than the black as well to soften the contrast a bit

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated!

I like the black & it fits my site well.. I have however made a quick change to the back of it:

When I see your card I think Halloween. I wouldn't use orange as a highlight color on black IMO. It's like making your business cards red and green.

I had the same thought! Just my opinion, but I would axe either the black or the orange.
