Looking for some advice here...
I've been doing photography as a hobby for a couple of years now, and I've been presented with the chance to start doing it professionally. Not exclusively, mind you (not as a sole income), but getting work to shoot events, doing my own stuff for art shows, that sort of thing.
When I set up a page (just on Facebook), I just set up something goofy to share my photos without needing to use my personal page since that's, ya know, personal. I was told tonight that I need to rethink the name I set it up with, though, because the humor doesn't come across to everyone.
What I set it up with is "id10t Studio". I served in the Army and "id-10-t" was something we commonly used as a light-hearted insult. I know it's not exclusive to the Army, but that's how I think of it.
Is it too self-deprecating? Too much, is it going to really cause me problems with people who think "well, I might have hired this guy, but...."?
At this point, I'm not married to the name or anything, so I'm just looking for some extra input.
Thanks for reading (if you made it this far).
