For the last week, I have been scratching my head...

I have a fairly Common - Ben Smith

I have been building my ideas around my love for Flying/Aviation. My photography interests are People, Pets, Wildlife and adventure sports!

It feels like i have been through all sorts of names, i have binned loads of sketches, and searched through loads of already taken webpages...

Id like to have something in the name that is flying related, or clouds or something nature like, as must of my photography is that way inclined

Anything that includes Photography - apature - zoom - camera - photo - pixle - cloud etc...the common stuff has already gone!

I kind of liked Clipped Wing (Its already my flicker name) but it has nothing photography related in it...

99% of my user names on forums logins etc..are 'Cosha' - Spoken Co-Sha
Comes from high school nickname - people think I am Jewish like 'Kosher Foods' a name i would like to get rid of...

Thanks for any help you can give!


Oh...Hello :)

I dunno.
Just tossing ideas into the mix.

You got one thing going for you

Ben Smith is very easy to remember! Can' go wrong with that unless you live in a huge city with 20 other Ben Smith Photography's

But even then Ben, it doesn't sound like you are listing it in the phone book to do wedding photography where it might get confused with that other Ben Smith guy....

How about Cloud 9 (Cloud nine or on cloud nine is an idiom referring to a state of elation or happiness) Maybe tack Photo on the end of it. Cloud 9 also might tie in with aviation aspect.

I noticed your initials, I guess BS Photo is out of the question;)

Morning,

Thank you for your your ideas...

BS Photography is a no go :D although most the times i feel my images would suit BS Photography!

ClippedWing Photography still sounds OK to me, i think ill build a bit on that and see how far i get!

I am a marketing person BTW, so I kind of look into things maybe differently than most. Why "clipped" wing? Doesn't this mean something that doesn't fly or done intentionally so that it doesn't fly? Not sure this will fly per the aviation types.. no pun intended.

Ben I'm a british microlight pilot. I fly flexwing (P&M Quik) If I were doing what you are trying to do I'd try to link my name with the aircraft I fly. (Quikpix) My call sign in part is Charlie Charlie or I call "her" Charlie.

Perhaps something like this might work.

Just some ideas. Best of luck with that

Would you mind if i used this to sketch a logo?

Thank you all again!

Cool, yeah, I was trying to figure out plays on the name Ben.

I definitely think it could work for you, it's generic in scope, but describes you, and what you do (photos).

Have fun and post back what you come up with, would love to see it.
