Here are a few examples of logos that I like, for some reason or other.
Some general thoughts:
In general I would like a logo that uses my name. As a self employed photographer my name is my brand. My name is sort and simple: PHIL BOND. I like the idea of a clean, simple and graphic treatment of my name included in the logo somehow.
I also like logos that are simple and iconic looking. I don’t like the idea of using a camera lens or aperture – that’s too chliché. (unless it’s very clever.) If the logo does reference photography I would prefer that is indirect (kind of like the record label logo below. It’s the center plastic adapter from old 45 rpm records.)
My primary areas of photographic interest are architecture and travel/nature/culture. I would’t mind referencing things like that but it would have to be not busy… clean and simple. Maybe not possible?
