Looks a little strange here, but the print version is quite nice.
It always starts people into a coversation along the lines of 'where did you take that?' or, 'how do you do that'?

I think that's a pretty cool idea, but you might want to flip the lens image so the writing show up correctly.

You might want to use a lens that is nicer than the cheapest lens that Canon makes as well :)

Shane I love your card I think its very creative and it just grabs you.
Now I guess the lens is only backwards by the way you look at the pic say if its on the camera looking thru this would be the right way right?

I love the creativity of this Business card. Mine that I am designing is so plain compared to yours.

These are my cards..pretty simple...the images need to be bigger so on the next run of cards Ill probably change the images and make them a little larger. Im also thinking of doing a back next time with some pricing info..but we'll see.

I wouldn't be sure about pricing info on the card. Unless you don't mind reprinting each time your prices go up? They're cheap enough anyway. Mine were around US$100 for 1000. 3-4 times cheaper than anything else local with clickbusinesscards.com

this is a general comment and not directed at anyone, but why do a few people have pictures of themselfs on there own card?

My women helped me design this. Im just starting out in photography so I wasnt worried about spending alot of time on the design. Its a start I guess. The back is blank and printed on 80lb stock. Still working on a template type html site. My brother is designing a flash site for me.

Mine is there, because it's the same as my site design. And it was on my site, as I felt it needed a subtle personalisation with me behind the camera in it. The response amongst the couple of hundred cards I've given out this year, has been really good.

I think it's fairly normal for folks to have there photos on business cards.. It's normal for lots of different professions.. but I love the originality of the photographers portraits.. Definately a lot more interesting than a picture of the Real Estate agent...

I usually only order 250 cards at a time, this allows me to come up with new designs constantly..and allows for easy price upgrades.. :) Here is a redesign of the above card that I am using for my next order.
