What you don’t really know is that along with improving my skills and growing my portfolio, I’ve been upgrading my “Brand” as a photographer. If you noticed in my early photos, I had a very simple, but beautifully designed watermark handmade by a friend of mine for all my photos so that I could protect them.
As my little hobby grew and more people started asking me to take their photos, my “little” hobby grew into a paid business of some sorts. I’m still in the initial stages of everything, but I felt as if I had grown out of my simple design and decided to go for something more concrete. So I asked one of my closest friends to help me create a completely new logo, one that would distinguish me from the thousands of photographers flooding the web. So it ended up looking like this:
Let me explain the cat a little bit. So if you know about the Maneki Neko cat, then you will notice the resemblance. The bowl is the Philippines Flag, because my heritage is what holds everything together. The cat is holding a lucky coin with a camera, which means that it will hopefully give me good luck. The cat has glasses because I always wear glasses. It’s also smiling because I always smile! It’s essentially the cat version of me!
Everything in my life seems to move fast forward. It’s now up to me to continue to drive that momentum forward. I can’t wait to use this logo for all my future business endeavors! Let me know what you all think! Thanks!
