Photography logo best practices

Colorful Windows with Trees Indoors

Color

As a photographer, you want your work to be in the spotlight. To avoid your logo overshadowing your best shots, go minimalist with your color palette. Black and white add a premium feel to your logo, while a bright accent color can help your brand stand out in a sea of business cards and websites all competing for the same clients.

Phone Layout with Logo on Screen

Layout

The best photography logos showcase their maker's aesthetic eye and communicate their sense of style. A clean, minimal layout will always look professional and stylish—something your clients want to see. Make sure the design works well in the areas you'll be using your logo most, including places like portfolio websites and social media channels.

Large Letter A on Rusted Background

Typography

When selecting a photography logo font, consider the style of your audience and work. Are you a more serious Serif type? Or maybe a more playful Script type? Whichever font you land on, test to make sure it's legible at every size and across mediums.

Elaborate Ampersand Symbol on Crowded Desk

Symbol

Many photographers incorporate camera symbols into their logos. But before you select a film, lens, or camera symbol, consider your competitors. If your direct competitors are also using similar symbols, you might want to choose something less literal. Your symbol also needs to complement your other logo elements, to create a cohesive brand image.
