I zipped ’em up and sent them along to the judges without commentary.
I’m Tamzin—a portrait photographer who creates pain-free portraits for personal branding in business and social media, for online dating profiles, and for just plain ol’ personal enjoyment, serving all kinds of folks in the Washington, DC area.
I do not post online dating photos of clients online; your privacy is of utmost importance to me. I primarily work with referrals, but I do occasionally work with others.
In looking closely at the astonishingly wide variety of ways our users have chosen to represent themselves, we discovered much of the collective wisdom about profile pictures was wrong.
No change: it’s still the best shot; better, in fact, than straight-up boob pics (more on those later). The male “Ab Shot” has the same reputation as the My Space Shot — it’s an Internet cliché that supposedly everyone thinks is only for bozos.
So on Monday I told you how to look better in photos, especially for use in your online dating profiles. sometimes it’s good to test my advice against the real world.
I know where to go, when to shoot and what will inspire people to check out your profile and spark up conversation starters.
Unlike other photographers I do not charge extra for outfit changes or number of locations.
