BOTTARI VISUALS is my company. My name is Jeff Bottari, I'm a West Coast United States based Visual Journalist (photographer/videographer) specializing in dynamic action sports, editorial, corporate, and advertising work. I'm currently based in Southern California, including San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange County, but I'm contracted for travel work frequently across the world. My true passion is covering action sports including snowboarding, surfing, motorcross, football, soccer, off road racing....etc

BOTTARI VISUALS is my company and I've helped produce action shots as well as portraits of many of the finest athletes of our time. BOTTARI VISUALS applies the same professionalism and technical lighting skills to athletes, celebrities and CEO's across the board.
Action Sports companies, websites and publications are my true target audience. I also shoot nature landscapes, weddings, fashion, lifestyle and commercial architectural. I want my branding to appeal to the corporate world yet have an edge to maintain my individual style.
I'm a freelance sports, entertainment, lifestyle and travel photographer with a portfolio of images from around the world, the majority coming from San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California while travelling to Las Vegas, NV and other major metropolitan cities across the United States. I supply stock images to international image libraries and my photographs are regularly used in sporting, travel magazines, tourist brochures and in various forms of advertising.

I'm looking for a logo design that I can use on my web site, on business stationery and promotional literature.
The logo design should convey, first and foremost, that I'm a professional photographer. It should should be "clean" and "edgy" rather than "funky". Please include something that suggests concepts like "Sports", "travel", "adventure" or "intrepid". Lastly, I want the logo to have a bold look, something that eludes to the creative diversity of my business.
- "BV" (initials) these should be the standout features of the logo icon designed
- "Bottari Visuals" (main text)
Design should be "striking/bold" and convey the following:
I'm open to color combinations too but will be looking for colors that complement my work in the action sports realm. Go to Malakye.com and look at the featured employers section @

The logos and styles here should draw some action sport influence you should be going for. I want the main point to emphasize the simplicity of the brand. I don't want something over-stylized, I want something clean and simple that appeals to a large global audience.
Design should include:
- I'm looking for a logo using the "B" and "V", something involving a periodic table of elements look. Where the B is big and the V is small within the confines of a square, hence the table of elements look.
- Negative Space useage is a great way to creatively get a LOGO IDENTITY to stand out from the crowd. This is a suggestion.
