Photography business cards shouldn’t look cheap. This means that whatever you plan is probably going to cost a lot of money.

the best part about this design is it is foldable, making it small enough for a wallet.

For a step out of the photography world and into the graphic design, this is one of my favourite photography business cards.

It goes to show that you don’t have to go overboard on the cliche photography ideas.
2. Tyrone Menezes
This photography business card for photographer Tyrone Menezes is a really simple black and white design.
The whole card looks like a camera when viewed straight on.
You’ll soon realize it features the front of a lens on one side and a hole that doubles as a viewfinder.

This business card is mostly transparent, with all the information at the bottom.
It is a nod to the usual viewfinder scene when you look through your camera.
It is smart and creative and will ensure your name sticks in your client’s mind.
