I'll bite :-)
1. is unreadable and really doesn't say 'photography' at all to me. Looks more like a badge on a motorbike.
2. I don't 'get' the symbology for a golf shop and I dislike the font (its too fussy).
3. Looks like you just played with all the buttons and sliders to see what effect you'd get.
4. looks better, but 'glossy' text is a bit dated. Also, your name, Grease Man says to me that you are a mechanic, not a photographer, especially with the logo presented.

One thing to consider is "How will this look printed smaller, printed mono (black on white), web-sized etc".

Look for inspiration on the net, e.g. http://www.creativeblo​q.com …ogo-design-trends-1212810 (external link).
Keep at it!

thank Hannya

#1 is for a motorsports photographer, specifically motocross, motogp type stuff
#2, the owner of the disc golf shop has the last name of "Feathers" & his brother who passed a few years ago brought the purple theme into the idea & the letters are actually the font they chose as it matches what they have on their sign
#3, i did tweak & retweak different adjustments...i modeled the logo after the Travis County Sheriff Badge...probably spent close to 4 hrs brainstorming with a friend of mine for a good look & is actually multiple layers with effects to give depth...the capitol in the center is actually from a photo i took...selected the small portion out, added the effect & went with it
#4, i actually was a mechanic for 10yrs before transitioning into being a photographer...ive also updated that logo since posting here...the name Grease Man comes from me being a mechanic before & also because i tend to shoot motorsports the majority of my time

the 2 photography logos are mainly for watermarking purposes & possibly business cards
the disc golf shop is for online use, business cards & the front window decal
the disc golf group is for online use & for a "bag tag"...disc golf groups get "bag tags" to show ranking within the group & also to show what group they are apart of...so imagine that logo printing on aluminum or a business card type stock, dropped into a plastic sleeve that attaches to the players disc bag
