Hey everybody, thanks for all the support on the concept. One other forum I posted it on didn't embrace it quite as well.
Some of the comments included:
-- Too many names (time stood still studio, j. michael wallace photography, jmw-photo.com) and none of them memorable. That "Jeff" isn't listed anywhere so if I add that - 4 identities. Of the 4, j. michael wallace photography shows the most promise.
-- "The card is very corporate stock photo looking with the clock. It's very office-ish" (sorry Andy)
-- Not "professional" looking enough
Of course, as the creative process goes I already have some new ideas.
This was the initial concept in my head. I think it can still be tweeked, but I have my first solo gigs coming up on Aug 25 & Sept 15 so I had to get something decent ready.
The idea of "time stood still" + "j. michael wallace photography" partially flows from identies such as "Dreamsworks" a Steven Speilberg production.
I like how the concept of "time stood still" and photography go together and what it offers with the use of a clock. Not to mention it doesn't lock me into or portray one type of photography.
With "j. michael wallace", I fear I am going to have to pay a pretty penny to have a logo of some sort conceptualized. Also, most photographers that go the "name" route seem to use images on thier cards.
Anyway, more thoughts you have would be gratiously accepted.
