Unpromising Photo(s) - Lovely Girl?

15 posts in this topic

There's a long-running thread here inviting punters to nominate their "Sexiest photo of a working girl" - so how about the reverse? Sometimes the photos really don't do the WG justice and can even look rather plain, but when you get there - assuming you take the plunge anyway - you find she's far prettier and sexier than you'd expected, and often a lovely person and a terrific performer to boot.

Case in point: Nana, now the proud possessor of a string of stellar (and well-earned) FRs, and on the books of quite a few Asian agencies including Aisha Invasian etc. I think many punters will agree with me that when she was starting out, her original photos weren't exactly promising - not exactly plain, but certainly rather humdrum and lacking in any particular sex appeal. Luckily for me, a few chance remarks on this forum indicated that Nana was well worth a visit. So I took a chance - they do call it "punting", after all - and was well rewarded: she was far better looking than those photos suggested, with a great personality and of course a top-notch performance. All of which is by now well-known, and thankfully these days Nana has some much nicer photos that show off her charms a hell of a lot better. :D

Another case - and this is going back to around 2005 - was a girl called Susan, who used to work at Agency Provocateur. Anyone remember her? (Russian, I think - told me she was from Siberia, though who knows if she'd tell a total stranger like me the truth about that? ;) ) Susan had bright orange hair, an exquisitely pretty face and a gorgeous trim figure, but for some reason her photos, while undeniably striking, mostly fell into two camps: either they were rather eccentric - posing on a rooftop with traffic cones, etc - or they tended to overemphasise her cleavage and make her look rather stern without particularly bringing out how beautiful she was. Again, I got lucky: I happened to be walking along Queensway one afternoon when I spotted her a few yards away, crossing the road. I recognised her at once - so the photos achieved that much, at least - but what struck me immediately was that she was far, far prettier and sexier than her photos had suggested. Not long after that I visited her a couple of times and found her to be a delightful person - and again, the performance was all I'd hoped for and more. I think by that time a few more photos had appeared, a couple of which did do her a bit more justice - I recall one heart-melting close-up of her face. :wub: Sadly, it wasn't long before she vanished, and these days AP seems to have become absurdly pricey, but I still remember Susan very fondly. Anyway, if I hadn't chanced to spot her in the street that afternoon, I'm not at all sure I'd have gone to see her on the basis of those photos. And who knows - if she'd had a proper set of photos from the start, showing off exactly how beautiful she was, maybe she'd have been around a bit longer?

(And by the way, just out of interest: anyone else remember Susan - or indeed know what became of her?)

Sorry, didn't realise I was going to go on (and on...!) quite so long. Anyway, for those of you who have made it this far: does anyone else have similar tales of WGs whose photos really aren't/weren't very promising, but who then turn out to be pretty stunning when you meet them in person?

Countless times over the years, if i have been happy with the phone chat when enquiring and the WG confirms her size and description then i am prepared to go for it with a plan B in case she has lied to me. Cute Ann ex of Golders Green fitted into this category who was a stunner and an excellent WG in my opinion but at one time had rubbish pictures. I told her she could be missing out on more punters due to her bad pictures and she did change them although some time later. :)

An obvious one for me is the recent and very deserving subject of 'Mariamania'

I'd more or less written her off and paid her no mind at all due to the odd, unfeminine and highly unflattering photos

I then did pay attention to a glowing PM from SiliconFan, and based on the strength of that and one or two stellar reviews I paid her a visit

The rest is history

We had a South American girl in Central London about two years ago who was a student in her early 20's. She's left London now so we won't say her name or refer to her photos. The photos she sent us were professionally done, without any airbrushing, and had been taken quite recently. They made her look nice and fairly attractive.

In the flesh, she was stunning. Sincerely, one of the best looking escorts we'd ever seen. Why the photos looked as plain as they did were just a mystery but perhaps it's true that some people photograph well, and some people do not.

Some people certainly seem to be harder to photograph than others, yes, and Susan may have fallen into that category - but she too eventually got a couple of decent pictures. Nana, of course, seems to have overcome that hurdle with a vengeance! :)

I discovered another good case in point recently. Anna Morgan (I've written a FR) of Stevenage has some rather poor pictures on her pages in the 'other place' but is a genuinely lovely woman and a joy to be with.

As a photographer I can vouch for this, even though I must have photographed thousands of females its still very difficult for me to tell if a woman will photograph well or not. You can make some assumptions by taking a close look at the face and light them and position the camera accordingly but I still am surprised by some of the results.

Mercedes of 007 - far younger looking and a whole lot more attractive in person........very smiley, friendly, likeable and an absolutely lovely girl too, for whom nothing is too much trouble

Nadia of 007 - while her photos can in no way be described as awful, she does look attractive in them, but they in no way prepared me for how truly gorgeous she is in the flesh, nor do they accurately portray at all the out n' out sexiness and virtual perfection of her body

I find this rule applies:

girl looks plain or worse facially: in real life will look even worse than pictures.

girl looks attractive facially: girl usually looks even better than pictures

It seems for the girls who look nice in the photos - the camera doesn't do them enough justice where as for girls who look plain or worse in the picture - the camera hides the true extent to their poor looks.

I feel that much the same, perhaps to a slightly less apparent degree, applies to her periodic partner in crime, Marisa.

The old photos from her 20s were rather good. But we all must pledge fealty to Time and the newer ones captured more of her contemporary age.

The new photos are clearly more accurate while the older ones are more flattering, and therefore still used in some places. The new ones particularly could put some off, but really ought not to, because in my view they capture none of the unique magnetism Marisa possesses.

Marisa's new photos wouldnt put me off in the slightest !!

Matter of fact..................I LOVE her new photos :wub:

She's simply gorgeous

I have just added xxVictoria of London to my hot list based upon her verification photo in which she looks natural, fresh and very good looking in a girl next door way. I dislike her chosen gallery pictures which show an air-brushed model barbie doll look but presumably its these type of pictures that pulls in the punters.
