For my first mockup I'm going with the classic, simplistic, and traditional approach.
And on the second I'm going for a more modern, conceptual, and "digital" approach.
I'm keeping in mind watermarking.

Between the two, I prefer the second logo rather than the first. The first logo seems a bit too passe as I've seen plenty of other photographers take similar approches to their brand identities.
That being said, I am liking the overall boldness of the second logo.
*all of my comments are in regard to the second logo.

I like what you've done here. Below is some inspiration to take the logo to the next level:
I think you have a very exciting start. Go further!!!

the second one looks better, take it further :)
I personally like the second version a lot better.
Although I think you should try to keep the optical lens even simpler!
Second is better than first.
Overall simple and clean. I like if the intention is to look less modern on the top logo then good job. I rally like the signature and I think that this is a good touch to the logo.
Over all the design is amazing! I would maybe change the perspective of the design so that you see a little of the side of the lens or the camera.
On the 2nd design with the hand written name it is hard to read the name and could get lost depending on the size and placement of the design.
Both images need antialiasing to remove jagged edges.
At first look i liked the first Logo but after awhile looking th second image began to grow on me. Its real artistic and the signature gives it a personal touch
With a little work this could be a great logo. The first one that is. Don't like the second one.
whole logo looks very clean. i would discard the second option and improve the typography and decrease number of details in the first one.
