Professional Tinder Photos-FAQ
Have you done many of these shoots before?
I have photographed around 100 clients for their tinder and online dating profiles. Some of whom are returning customers who also request me to photograph their LinkedIn profiles too.
I’m X years old, is this type of thing for me?
My clients range in age and life experience. From people who have just finished their HSC; to others who are just getting back into the dating scene after many years married. Whether you are 18 or 55, I will make you look your best.
Why aren’t there any example photos?
The privacy of my clients is very important to me, and I wouldn’t break that trust by publicly using images from a shoot such as this on my site. However, all of the photos on my site are taken by me, and I’ll be photographing you.
Won’t it be obvious I’ve got professional photos?
Yes, your photos will look professional, however I photograph you looking relaxed and happy. This isn’t a fashion shoot, and you won’t be posed in strange ways that make you look like you’re “trying too hard”. I normally say that if you’re asked about it, just tell them a friend of yours is a photographer and needed to practice taking portraits.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself, and a few changes of outfits. Try and choose outfits that have a few layers such as a shirt or jacket, and mix up t-shirts with button shirts. The goal is to give you a set of photos that don’t all look taken at the same moment.
Please make sure you bring clean clothes to your shoot, dress like you would on a date.
What should I do before hand?
If you’re thinking of getting a hair cut, make sure you do it a few days before your scheduled shoot. Some people can get a little bit of a rash from clippers and haircuts look better a couple of days later anyway. (This doesn’t affect everyone though, if it’s your normal hair cut and it looks good straight away, it’s all good!)
Get a decent night’s sleep and don’t hit the drinks. If you’re hungover, it will show in your photos. No matter how much retouching, you’ll look tired.
Where is the photo shoot?
Generally I shoot around the area of Leichhardt where I am based, I use a range of backdrops from parks, to laneways, as well as a garage studio backdrop, should you wish to get some LinkedIn photos done too.

How long until my photos are ready?
Depending on your package, you will get a varying number of colour corrected and retouched images. Generally your proofs will be sent via dropbox within a week after your shoot. Once you have selected your proofs, your colour corrected images will be ready within another week. From there you select your images for retouching. (Basic package shoots have the images colour corrected and retouched in the same process).
