Head shots for internet dating phoenix
Like this guy, Max Schwartz, an NYC-based photographer whose Craigslist ad for Tinder Headshots recently went slightly viral. Schwartz in action, so last week we summoned him into the Supercompressor offices to help improve our interweb dating games.
Like any true "before and after" situation, we chatted about why we chose our original Tinder photos and had Max give us his (brutally honest) professional opinion. Why he chose it: “My roommate (female) suggested I include a photo with ladies in my profile. The logic: It shows that attractive women like me (still single, ladies).
So I’m thinking of upgrading mine to get out of this dry spell.
However, I have one worry about getting better photos: If I dress up really nicely, get my hair done, and get photographed in flattering lighting, won’t I look different in my photos than I will on a first date?
After all, a first Internet date is generally a casual daytime meetup, so I wouldn’t be sporting a nice hairstyle or tons of makeup, nor would I be posing under rosy, forgiving lights.
I’m really quite interested in trying to figure out why you’re going through a dry spell, but that wasn’t your primary question. Anyway, here’s my theory on professional photography: Due to the enormous competition, you want to maximize your chance of getting a first date.
I’m 24, and I’ve always seemed to have good luck with online dating.
I’ve met lots of people that way, including my last two boyfriends and a lot of now-close friends.
I would definitely, highly recommend getting new photos from Online Profile Pros! Soon after the photo shoot I sent the photographer an email saying that the women online reacted favorably to my photos.So, please, contact a photographer and watch your profile get more hits instantly.I’ve been thrilled with the results and trust you will be, too. Totally agree, I encourage my friends to get professional photos made, or at least take a new set of good quality photos showing you at your best.I wanted the photos to capture my essence in a positive way.Upon seeing me in person for the first time, my dates told me that I look just like my photos.
