Online Profile Pros in Huffington Post article by dating expert, Lisa Copeland, of Find a Quality Man.
The article called The 15 Best Do’s and Don’ts for Posting Pictures Online covers the Do’s and Don’t of online dating photos. As you probably guessed, we at Online Profile Pros can discuss that topic for days, so it’s great when an online dating expert reiterates the importance of good photos when online dating. We’re all visual creatures, so why try and fight it. In the piece she states:
DO hire a pro….The advantage of a professional picture is they help you stand out from everyone else on the site. Just make sure the photographer does minimal retouching……If you’re having trouble finding a photographer in your area, I’d recommend checking out Online Profile Pros. They know what they’re doing when it comes to taking the pictures you need to get noticed online.
As our home page states, “90% of dating coaches recommend professional online dating photos,” and this article is further proof of that fact. Make sure you’re making the right first impression online with great professional dating photos. Remember, you can use your new photos for any dating site or app, as well as on LinkedIn and Facebook. Improve your personal brand online can help you get an edge in online dating as well as your career.
We also agree with Lisa’s statement about minimal retouching. Just like you don’t want to misrepresent yourself with a 10 year (or more) high school photo, you don’t want to change the way you look with retouching. We all know that retouching can do scary things like change your face shape, take 10+ years off your face, but if you do those things the guy or gal you’re meeting probably won’t recognize you. Once they realize what you’ve done to your photos, they will probably end the date quickly and not ask you for a second one. Never be dishonest with your photos or written profile.
