But I’m not photogenic

Feeling that you’re not photogenic is pretty common. In fact when it comes to how to make a profile picture most of our customers initially believe that they don’t photograph well. It’s usually down to two reasons:

  1. You had a poor photographer. It takes skill to make someone look good in an profile pic. While good luck can produce great profile pictures, poor composition or poor lighting guarantee poor results. A good, experienced, professional photographer knows how to make the conditions work.
  2. You felt uncomfortable, tense or posed when taking the photos. A good portrait photographer also knows how to get the most out of his or her subjects. Your photographer will help you relax and shoot you looking your best.

After the photo shoot, our customers are often are amazed that they look so good, and it all comes down to using a great photographer! With the right photographer, you’ll be photogenic, get the profile photos you deserve and get better dates

I don’t want some glamour shot that looks nothing like me.

Neither do we. A glamour shot is not about The Real You, it’s about the photographer creating the image that they find the most pleasing. The photographer will use heavy makeup, hair styling, unnatural lighting and heavy post production retouching.

The result is a fantasy image, and it fails online. People avoid these type of dating profile pictures because they feel that no one looks like this, or they avoid you after the date because you didn’t measure up to the dating photos on your profile.

Our professional photographers are trained to stay away from this style of photography. They know exactly how to make a profile picture and take natural dating profile photos that reflect who you really are and get you better dates!

I can take my photos at Walmart for nickels!

A Walmart photographer will tell ytou that they will take a profile photo of you for just a few bucks. But that picture won’t get you better dates. What you save on the shoot you’ll spend on continued dating site subscriptions, bad dates and wasted evenings. When it comes to photography, you get what you pay for -- and paying nickels for dating pictures is a waste of time and money!

How to make a profile picture:When you’re sitting for a dating site profile photo:

  1. The environment should be relaxed and comfortable so that you’re looking happy and content. (This doesn’t happen in Walmart.)
  2. The pose should be natural and casual so that the viewer will feel at ease with you. (Those aren’t the poses that Walmart photographers have the time – or skill -- to produce.)
  3. You should have a variety of images to choose from. (Walmart photographer will take 9 photos only!)
  4. The photos must be digital so you can upload them. (Walmart will give you prints. If you want digital, it’s $80 per image or $200 for the nine. That’s not nickels any more.)
  5. The photos should be small so that they can be uploaded easily or emailed to friends and family. (Pay Walmart $200 and you’ll get massive images that are impossible to share.)

Take a look at the video below, we took of a typical Walmart photo shoot and decide for yourself. Is this the kind of photo shoot and online dating photos you'd like to have?

I can take my own photo!

Of course, you can take your own dating photos! Anyone can push a button on a camera and produce a photo. But that doesn’t mean that the profile pics will be the kind of photos that will win you looks and responses on a dating site – especially when you’re taking it yourself.

How to make a profile picture!
There are four ways of taking your own profile pictures to put on a dating site.

  1. You can hold your arm out in front of you
  2. You can take a still from a webcam
  3. You can stand in front of a mirror
  4. You can ask a friend to photograph you

You’ll see each of these approaches as you browse profile pics on dating sites, and you’ll see the drawbacks with each of them. They don’t deliver the quality dates online singles are looking for. Just take a look at this video to see what we mean.

Taking your own online dating photos is a bad idea, unless, of course, you want to stay single.

Isn’t taking a professional photo cheating?

Posting profile pictures on a dating site that don’t look like you is cheating-If your photographer retouches your profile pics so that you end up looking like a supermodel – and you’re not one- then you’re cheating other dating site singles.

But if you post a dark, blurry, posed or unfocused profile pic then you’re cheating yourself. That’s how most profile pictures on dating sites look.

The people who look at your profile want to know exactly who you are. They want to see a clear profile picture to see exactly who you are.

Our photographers know how to make a profile picture and have one goal: to create pictures that show you as you really are.

You’ll appear smiling and content, confident and happy, wearing the kind of clothes you’d wear on a date and looking your best. Because at your best, you’re still you. Anything else is cheating.
