Why Please 8…

Friday, December 9th, 2016

I feel obligated to give you few words about my name. In April 2014 I was forced to legalize my passion to the company. Long time I was thinking about name.

When deciding on a name, it is important to consider the psychology of the business name. Among creative professionals, the vast majority use their own names within their business names in some way or another. The general formula is to either use your first and last name plus the service that you perform.

Some photographers, on the other hand, end up going with a fictitious business name for their business – this is what I decided to do…

One of my targets was to take the name short and memorable, but Timeless and Versatile as well.

From the very beginning I knew I wanted to use number “8” had few ideas but all of them has been taken like “Studio 8”or so…

I needed to find a word which will express myself and will be catchy. I love pleasing people and making them feel happy and satisfied, make them glad or contented. Is anything better to cause natural smile?

“Please” – this is my word.

Now about “8”

This could be a long story… Number eight haunts me for long time. All started from.. some dream I believe or could be any lost thought as well. To be honest this is not the matter at the moment.The fact is number eight is haunting me, and if something haunting you and not making any biggest harm why to fight with it ?

I decided to support this obsession. Hoped it will evolve something special.
