Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
(My soon to be website is called-DLeeVisuals.com)
I take photos, MY way/ MY visuals.
I live in Carmel, California, 9 blocks from THE coast of the West. My photos are pretty and fun and are of the ocean sunsets, birds, animals, flowers, food, wine and a lot more. Nothing serious yet not silly.
Nothing new, just MY way. The way I see-MY visuals!
I am taking photos with a great Canon camera in a beautiful place on earth in a peaceful time in my life. I am 55 and loving life! For now, I am setting up my web site;
www. DLeeVisuals. com
just to be used as a gallery to "show off" my photos and for feedback. Eventually, I see my own greeting card line and I believe I will sell my photos as greetings cards, invitations, posters and whatever else comes from feedback that I receive and I will sell them in retail, wholesale, local and on the web. I am a work in progress and need a logo to begin making my solid foundation. I have photos for every category that you would find at your local Hallmark store; birthday, anniversary, sympathy, etc...so I would like to have my own "Hallmark" card line of saying something MY WAY using MY photos!.
I want a recognizable logo that does not limit me to just where I live and what I do. I want a recognizable logo that represents D. Lee and HER (my) way of seeing things in general. I want people to see my logo and say " that's a D. Lee card!"
Logo types to explore
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
*I do not want my logo to limit my market. To be more specific I do not want to be stereotyped as a photographer that takes photos at weddings and studio settings as this is not what I do.
*And I do not want my market to be limited to where I live. I live in a beautiful location; Carmel, California surrounded by the obvious beauty so I challenge myself to take photos of this beauty in my own way. But my market is not just where I live either ....as helpful as it is to taking beautiful photos!!! Anyone can take pretty photos here as long as you have a camera. And I do take those photos because of the obvious beauty, but I WANT MORE for me and my website! Keep in mind that Carmel is famous as are my neighborhoods of Monterey and Pacific Grove. BEAUTIFUL! I walk to the beach with my camera passing by flowers and arrive at the beauty of the ocean and happy dogs and happier birds and people. Many of my photos are from the obvious as to where I live, but many are not as I take photos of more than just that.
*Growing up in the 70's I used to think that I could solve world peace but now at the age of 55 I now know that I cannot save the world and bring about world peace but I would like the opportunity to show some of the beauty to remind us all of the love we can bring about within our own homes and lives, family and friends. Perhaps a peace sign with hearts keeping with the theme of photography. Sounds corny and I DO NOT WANT corny! I love love and I have always seen everything MY WAY, my OWN WAY (DLeeVisuals) and have been told that since I was a child. I am grateful to be able to capture and share some of my "visuals" in a picture to keep forever.
I would like for some one to pick up one of greeting cards and recognize that it is a "D Lee" card/photo........THE LOGO is THE KEY!THANK YOU ALL!!!
