I've been giving some serious thought to the name VisaVis Photography. I'm not sure how many people actually "Get it". Vis a Vis is French for "Face to Face".
So I've been looking at the websites of other performance photographers as well a some commercial photograhers and most seem to use a .com site with just their name, eg: Emilie Sandy (www.emiliesandy.com), Matilda Temperley (www.matildatemperley.com), Simon Annand (www.simonannand.com), Scott Rylander (www.scottrylander.com).
I've looked for www.charliedownes.com but this is taken it directs to http://yewtreestudio.com, Not sure what that's about but hey ho! So I'm thinking of www.charlesdownes.com whichis currently available, I'd still be using Charlie as my name, but the Charles bit does make it sound quite classy in my opinion. Any comments welcome.
