Would I need a trademark or copyright for Turtlesandbox Photography?

Asked by turtlesandbox (1875points) April 25th, 2014

How do I make the name mine. I have the perfect surname to advertise my amatuer photography and I would like to make sure the name belongs to me and no one else.

Where do I start?
What will this cost me?

Thank you!

You register it with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

In addition to what @zenvelo writes, I would purchase the domain name.

Commercial Work=Trademark

Artist=No Trademark Needed (You simply go to galleries and present your work and your work speaks for yourself)
