Brand Name?

I asked a friend to design a logo for me, so that I can use it on all my photos.
He asked me what my brand name is..... which got me thinking.
Now, I put on this on the banner of my website: Coltrane Koh Photography.
And my website address is www.coleshot.co.uk

Now, would I have to think of a different name for my brand? Or do I just use Coltrane Koh Photography (a bit too long?)? Or do I just use Coleshot?
How does it work?

Cruelshit sounds much ....well....cooler.

But, seriously, why do you want to wreck your photographs by plastering a brand name over them? I have seem countless otherwise good images totally ruined because the photographer has felt she needed to spoil it with some inane copyright notice or trademark - which has absolutely no legal significance and can be cloned out in 10 seconds by any competent image thief.

If you do feel the need to "identify" yourself on your website images, then why not photoshop a frame round them and put your name on the frame, rather than desecrating the image itself?

By the way, Coleslaw, I had a look at your website - some superb photography on display there. Please don't ruin it.

Personally speaking I wouldn't have Lucky on the header of the website as he isn't the photographer, but that's up to you. The rotating sequence of shots on the mainpage is very good and works well in advertising what may/may not be available.

LF, no, nothing to do with copyright thingy. It will just be something small in the corner. A bit like artist signed their name on the painting.

Peter, maybe he is the photographer after all, who knows.....Smile lol...

I use a small logo on the images on my website for the same reason. It's just a way of making my mark.
