How James Long started their logo design journey

Company name

James Thomas Long Photography - http://www.jamesthomaslong.com

Overview

I'm energetic, athletic, fun, and very enthusiastic about my passion - photography! I love kids and have a wonderful wife (who is my wedding photography assistant) and 2-year old daughter of my own. People say I'm also pretty laid back and calm, especially in stressful situations (after all, I survived 6 years as a high school teacher before turning to photography full-time!). I like abstract art, music (I compose experimental electronica too).

I like old, distressed wood, sunflare, damask, peeling paint, interesting textures, and just about anything rusty, vintage, and weathered. I like images that trigger the imagination, making you stop and contemplate... or get lost in a person's gaze or expression.

I specialize in natural and lifestyle photography of weddings, newborns, children, and families. I love to capture spontaneous, natural expressions and movement in my photographs, while incorporating mood and surroundings to create as much impact as possible. Each image becomes a work of art that will adorn someone's home or album. I also do everything I can to ensure my clients have an amazing experience working with me and they appreciate my passion for creativity and the personal attention they receive as my clients.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Most of my clients are women in their early 20s to upper 30s and their partners. They are fun/hip/discerning brides-to-be and fun new moms and dads that want an absolutely fabulous photography experience and are willing to invest in fine photography. I would like my new logo to promote my brand as having a "boutique" feel, indicating to potential clients that we offer something very special, unique, and memorable. We form relationships with our clients and they know that we will do everything possible to ensure that they have a wonderful experience with us. Our clients return year-after-year.

Requirements

I am looking for a new logo to further enhance our brand of natural, lifestyle wedding and portrait photography.

Specifically, I would like the logo to be:
Cutting edge, fresh, and elegant, with a bit of an old-world vintage feel – aged like fine wine you might say. It should have high-end appeal and contain some sort of symbol/abstract shape(s) (in addition to my studio name) that reflects the above attributes of my brand.

This will be used for:
-website/branding
-as a watermark
-print/marketing materials

Other considerations:
-In terms of colors, I like the blue and white currently used in my website and studio name, but I'm open to changes too! I'd like to have a light and inverted dark version to use in different situations.
-my website currently looks a bit modern/minimal, but I am hoping to infuse some vintage/old world class/elegance with a cutting edge feel in the near future as I continue to build my brand and revamp my website. This logo will essentially be the beginning or catalyst for those changes.

Definitely NO:
-no cameras
-no cheesy fonts

Some of the logos that I really like are at the following:
http://www.danieladegrassi.com (I like the symbols - look like they were taken from a damask pattern)
http://www.triciabphoto.com (I like the "B" in her logo)

Thank you and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
