Online Dating Headshots by Vanie Poyey It’s always a pleasure to travel and shoot somewhere other than in Los Angeles.
I love being thrown into environments I’ve never been in and “wing it” with lighting, locations etc.
On a side note, I’ll be going to New York at the end of the month!
I only have two slots left for August 30th so let your friends know and if you’re in NY and don’t like to pose for pictures, call me to get some killer organic headshots!
If eyes are the window into the soul, Tinder is the window into the pants.
(#True.) And there are people out there who want to make that reality...easier.
Like this guy, Max Schwartz, an NYC-based photographer whose Craigslist ad for Tinder Headshots recently went slightly viral.
“The key to success on Tinder is using a picture that speaks to your strengths and irresistible charm better than the most highly trained wingman,” Schwartz says. Schwartz in action, so last week we summoned him into the Supercompressor offices to help improve our interweb dating games.Like any true "before and after" situation, we chatted about why we chose our original Tinder photos and had Max give us his (brutally honest) professional opinion. Finished product: “I went for the Steve Jobs look, clearly I nailed it.Afterwards we got snapping, gave our best Blue Steels, and in the end, came out with (kind of) better-looking versions of ourselves. I also look like your doctor on Zoc Doc.” Why he chose it: “My roommate (female) suggested I include a photo with ladies in my profile. The logic: It shows that attractive women like me (still single, ladies).Why she chose it: “It was a good hair day for sure. Like a blonde Carmen Sandiego playing cards." Max weighs in: Mysterious. I would never be able to recognize her in real life. Because my friends pictured are attractive.” Max weighs in: This dude looks like a total player and not in a good way.I wouldn’t use girls in your photo, you don’t wanna come off greedy and creepy.Finished product: “I look less like a party boy/player, but more like a potential crazy.
