Forget the pro photographer. What you want to do is convey your personality through the pictures. If you are VERY goodlooking, then focus on conveying looks instead. Â Most dating sites let you put more than one pic up. So chose a variety. 1) a professional pic, in a suit; conveys you got you're sh*t together, working, white collar job. 2) A athletic pic, doing something active, whatever you're hobby is; shows that you not the typical corporate stuffy guy, and have interests. 3) A fun pic, one with you and some friends, women friends would be better; something like all your buddies having a toast. Conveys that you already have a social circle and friends, that you aren't desparate. Â Let the pictures tell a story. If you just list interests in the section where they let you do that, well... you know what they say, actions speak louder than words. Â You want to appear as a fun guy to be with, someone who can ADD value to a womens life, not just someone who seeks value from her. Â Most guys botch these online profiles by treating it like a resume. Don't be that guy. Some things to think about reguarding photo color: Everyone looks better in black and white, people know this and will downplay looks based on a B&W photo. They are slimming and make your skin tone even. Watch out for girls with only B&W photos... Watch out for girls with only headshots, they're fat.. Quick tip: the hottest girls tend not to post pics, so email some of them based on profile, it might work out.
