A potential client's first impression are your photos. You've probably got one second to get that person engaged with your profile. It all comes down to that one second or so... then click... on to the next profile. In this fast paced "glance and a swipe" society, battles are often won or lost in a mere moment. Are you prepared?
Its a battle out there, and the most prepared will prosper. Your escort profile needs to be strong to drive clients your way. Yes, you've spent time working on your description and details, but that is all secondary. The first thing a potential client does is view the escort's photos. If you want to grow your escort business and get more customers your photography needs to be front and center on your priority list. Put down the iPhone-- it's time to invest in high end photography.
Image and presentation is everything. Are you just getting started in escorting? Or are you getting back into the game after some time? Perhaps you've recently changed your hair? Or have you lost a few pounds since you started those awesome Muai Thay classes? Time for some new photos.
As an escort your photos need to be current and on point.
Men are visual creatures. Having great photography is the foundation of a strong escort profile. The photos need to represent your style and need to draw men deeper into your profile while giving them reason to initiate the next step.
Several years ago, when I started receiving requests to do this kind of work I was curious to see how people handled their profiles. I wanted to see the style and look of the photography being used in the industry to create a product for my clients. After poking around on a few escort websites I came to the conclusion that most profiles are a mess. Plain and simple. My first thought was this was would be an easy path to success for those who chose to take it to next level and set up their profiles in a professional manner.
So, I came up with a plan, and my clients immediately saw results. I'm never one to really give away hard-earned knowledge for free, but I figured I'd take some time to help out those seeking to take their escort profiles to a new level. After shooting many escorts I put together a few tips to help you get the most out of your photo experience.
Work With The Best Available Photographer In Your Area
Sounds cliche, but I can't stress how important this is to your success. This step will take a bit research, but your career is worth it. One point to get past right up front is that the best photographer in your area will not be the cheapest.
You are a bad shopper. It's not entirely your fault, however. You've never been educated on how to shop properly. The first thing you'll have to prepare yourself to do is to put aside every bad shopping instinct you've been using your entire life. Photography isn't a price comparative industry. Don't shop by price, shop by quality. In photography, the lowest price doesn't win, more often than not choosing by lowest price will leave you losing in the end. Your clients are not going to care how much you paid for your photos, they are only going to notice how great they look, which will bring results.
Everything your clients will surmise about you will come from your photos. Mediocre photography will lower your appearance standards, and your earning potential. At the risk of repeating myself, photography is one investment in your business which will payoff with a large RIO (Return On Investment.)
What type of photographer should you seek out? Well, there are photographers who specialize in escort photography, so that may be a good starting point. If your area lacks anyone specializing in that area look for an experienced boudoir or glamour photographer.
Boudoir photographers are great for this type of work. They are typically experienced in posing women. Boudoir photographers exist in many areas of the country, so you shouldn't have trouble locating one near you-- BUT as I mentioned earlier-- there are lots of bad boudoir photographers out there, so choose wisely. There also may be an outstanding model or glamour photographer in your area which would be a great choice, as well.
