51 Available Photography Name Ideas for Your Business, Website, or Blog

I know that it is pretty tough to come up with a name for a photography business or blog. And what makes it even harder is trying to find a name that is available as a .com. This is why I have brainstormed and created this list of 51 photography name ideas that are available as a .com. You can take anyone of the names I’ve listed below (before they are used by someone else).

Here are some examples of photography websites that have memorable and catchy names:

  • The Law Tog – a photography website blog about the law of photography
  • Strobist – a website about lighting by world famous photographer David Hobby
  • Fstoppers – community for all things photography and video

So here is the list of available photography business names that you can take as a .com.

Get your photography website as a .com (before it is taken) with BlueHost. It is the same company I use for Hatch and Scribe and Home Tree Atlas. 

You can also click on the name that you want – and I will show you how to register it (the name ideas in bold are my favorite.)

Quick Tips on How To Create Your Own Name Ideas

The goal is to find creative words. And to do this start making a list of words that describe who you are and the type of blog or business that you want to start.

Here are some exercises to help you create your list of words:

1. Keep Asking Questions:

  • What is it about working out/fitness/health that you like? The rush, the solitude, the pain
  • What exercises do you enjoy the most?
  • What are some other hobbies or interests that you could mix into the blog and make it unique?
  • What are the body parts that you focus on the most?
  • What kind of lifestyle do you want to live? (Being healthy in the city, country, forest, on an island)
  • What are some sayings that you would hear? (‘push it’, ‘give me 20′, ’10 more’, ‘feel the burn’)

2. Start mixing and matching words to create name ideas.

3. Put some of the words you like into a thesaurus to come up with more word ideas.

4. When you have a good list of 5-10 fitness business name ideas that you like, go to name.com. This is the fastest way to check to see if your name is available as a .com

5. If the name is available then go to Bluehost to set up your hosting account which comes with a free .com domain name.

DIY Food Blog Headers: How To Guide

Food Blog Header Designs

Food Blog Header Designs

This post will show you how to make your own DIY header for your food blog

Once you’ve got your food blog set up with a domain name and a host (DIY Set Up: How to Start a Food Blog (11 Minutes)), the next step will be to get your brand new blog looking good. The easiest way of doing this is to create an awesome custom blog header design.

If you don’t have any computer design skills, this can be hard. But if you have a simple camera (you don’t need a fancy one), you can easily create your own free DIY blog header with some common kitchen props.

One simple way of creating a food blog header is to find a plain white plate/bowl, and decorate it with a sharpie. I found my plates and bowls at the Korean dollar store.

How To Make Your Own Free Custom Blog Header

Blog Header Design

Simple Materials

  • Any camera
  • White plate/bowl
  • Sharpies
  • Background setting (I used white cardboard)
  • Props (I used a knife and fork, and some plum tomatoes)

You could get more creative by using colored plates, or plates with decorative patterns on them.

I simply used colored sharpies and white plates, and wrote my (fictional) blog name “Hatch and Cook” on them. I tried a few different styles to see what look best.

Styling With Props

Try and add some props into your photo. There are so many options here. If you have a theme for your food blog (baked goods, BBQ recipes, Asian food), think about all of the related props you could use.

Here are some general items you could include in your blog header design:

  • Cooked food
  • Knives
  • Spices and herbs
  • Glass jars
  • A drink
  • Table mat/coaster
  • Napkin
  • A cute apron
  • Kitchen utensils or appliances
  • Recipe notes

Playing With the Background

The background you choose will really set the look and feel of your blog header design. Here is a photo where I used a rustic wooden background (and stamps to write out the blog name):

custom blog header DIY

Some ideas for backgrounds include:

  • White/black/colored cardboard
  • A granite countertop
  • Linen
  • Tinfoil
  • A place setting
  • A cooking pan/chopping board
  • The kitchen table

Lighting is Key to a Good Photograph

You need good lighting. This is the most important element when photographing your blog header.

Avoid using the lights in your room as they will make your photos look yellow. Instead use the natural day light coming in from a window.

I put my plate on a table near the window during the day. I turned off all of the lights in the room. I also put a white piece of cardboard behind the plate. This bounces light from the window onto the other side of the plate – reducing the shadows you have in the photo.

Play Around With Angles

When taking photos, move around a bit and look for different angles. You won’t know what looks best until you get the photos onto your computer. Here are some images of different angles of the same plate:

So there you have it – a simple way to create a custom food blog header design using some sharpies and plain plates/bowls. I’ll be creating more posts showing other ideas of creating DIY graphic designs for your blog.
