Signed up for a domain name today, I am officially on the web. Well, not really. I don't actually have a website. Apparently you can't close your eyes for a minute and as soon as they reopen you will have a beautifully completed website. There is work involved, people. Don't let those fancy websites fool you- it isn't magic like I thought! Damn, if leprechauns came in handy for something, I wish it were web design. Anywho, I'm a complete moron when it comes to computertalk, so Dave will step in and be my Internet Manager (he doesn't quite realize that this is his position) and maybe he will be my magical leprechaun and wow, things just got dirty creepy in my head. Ok then! My company name is Human Portrait Photography. It got less emo and more like "oh, so she won't shoot dogs, right?" but that's ok. I still like it, I think it's kinda funny, and it encapsulates a wide spectrum. Basically, I will be taking portraits of humans. Self-explanatory. No one will be confused as to what I do, which I've heard is a positive. In fact, my tattooist told me that when starting a business and thinking of a name, the name that is most simple and directly to the point can be the most effective. If I decided to call my company "Lampshades on Fire Photography" a potential client would be all like, what the blip does that mean?! Actually, that's a rather humorous name and damn, maybe I should hit up godaddy and claim it. No, friends, that will be my gift to you. Take the name and run with it. Your welcome.
