It doesn't roll off the tongue for some reason. Does it stand for phenomenal photo?

Did you have any other ideas?

I am not a fan of gimmicky names. As a photographer, use your name and build a reputation.

i see the idea but it doesn't roll of the tongue, i knew what it was when i seen it but i had to reread to pronounce it.

I know the whole NAME+PHOTOGRAPHY thing is so boring (unless you have an interesting name) but it helps, as said, to get your name out there..

Another idea to help with ranking/marketing sort of thing is to include your area/location in that url but I don't think it looks good (PhotoAtlanta.Com .. actually i like that one though, it's taken lol) - it helps.

Depending on how far you take it. One draw back with useing your name... when you get big enough to hire a second shooter nobody will want them to shoot thier stuff. "I hired Bob Photo, and I want Bob Photo to shoot it". I have heard this more times than I can count as it is not only a photo business problem. Pick a name an build a brand where the people trust the name, and dont think they have to rely on only you.

If you have a name that rhymes with photography, that helps a lot....:lol:

If it's a contraction of 'phenomenal' and 'photography' then I think that 'photonomenal' sounds better.
