This is a question for the punters....and also for WG's. 

 

 

At the moment I use amateur photos that I've taken of myself.

 

My question to the WG's is, how beneficial do you find professional photos to your business? Did you notice an increase in interest after uploading a more glossy "professional" photo your site? Or did it do the opposite?  

 

To the punters, do you prefer to see a lady with amateur photos that perhaps seem a little more realistic? Or a combination of both professional/amateur? Also, if a WG chooses to have her face blurred in said photos would this put you off making a booking? 

 

Thank you  :)

It's nice to see some eye candy professional shots but I always prefer to see some natural photos (but not with washing hanging on the radiators and dirty pots and pans on the sink :P)

If you choose to blur your face then run the software several times as there is software can can attempt to reverse it. That's why many lady choose to "cut" their face from the image rather than blur it.

Dear SophiaBella,

 

I have seen several ladies with pictures which serve to conceal their identity. None of those ladies has disappointed me in the slightest when I saw them in person. I do like to see at least the ladies' lips, since IMO this gives quite a guide as to how pretty they might be.

 

As to excessive photoshopping, there is a type of picture which strays so far into the realm of two-dimensional unreality that I am discouraged from further consideration of meeting the lady. I would prefer a more amateur and realistic portfolio.

A mixture of amateur and "glamourized" but not photoshopped might be ideal.

I want to see pictures of WGs as they actually look now, the time i am going to consider booking them. If i dont fancy the real in the flesh WG because her pictures arent up to date and/or dont look like the real her i will walk and she wont get my cash.

 

I prefer face pictures of course but i understand the reasoning why some dont have them and its not a make or break thing for me, and if it had been i would of missed out on punting with many good WGs.

Agreed.

Big time photos look lovely but often lead to big time disappointment IMO.

You speak for me too, here!

 

I always look for the Exif data, both as a nerdy photographer, and to see the date when the photo was taken, and if it has been "improved".

 

While I understand very well a lady's wish for discretion, I do wish that rather than blurring, or cutting their heads off, ladies would try a nice venetian style mask, which anonymises, but can also be very sexy!

I did a series with masks, some said they found them rather sinister - didn't like it at all. Can't please everyone but hair and turning away is useful.

Or this pics of the kids and Grandma in the background.

 

While I prefer natural amateur pics, even if they have been taken in a Travelodge, its those with tatty paintwork and scruffy carpets that's a no no for me.

Is this for an AW profile, or your own website?  Perhaps unfairly, I associate photos that look too glossy and professional on AW with fake profiles.

This is for my AW profile. I'm hoping my feedback would confirm my photos and identity..from these responses I'm definitely going to use a combination of both in the future. Thanks for your input!  :)

And last year there was a WG whose AW photos showed that she was wearing a tracking tag on her ankle, which cannot have been very inviting! Something that I think she could have been forgiven for photoshopping out!

+1 for realistic amateur photos - looking for a woman to punt with not a doll....

I have had a look.

 

I doubt you need to do anything at all.

 

Not near enough to me and too pricey for me are your only faults.

 

And that's a win win win for you therefore.

I found that both my professional shoots took my level of interest and bookings up.

 

However it is also offset by the Natural photographs on AW as well.

 

My professional shots at the time were done with MINIMAL touching. i.e poking my ass in a bit as it looked like I had a bubble butt lol.

Some slight lightening of the picture. other than that if you have professional ones done, just don't have massive amounts of photshopping done and they should work out fine for you.

I have my professional shots on my wrbpasite and my amateur ones on most of my other adverts.The feedback I got was that men generally prefer the amateur photos as they know exactly what they are going to get.You can still get some cool photos that are amteur..minxylydia recently took some snaps of me on her camera phone and they are fab!

So perhaps the answer is to have a mix.

Some good helpful advice that you have already received and perhaps I can add to it with my comments.

 

Face:        If you are happy to show your face then do so.   It is by far the best approach.   Many ladies have different reasons for hiding their face and I would never argue with them about it.    But I'm sure that if you ask any potential client they would all say that they prefer to see the lady's face.    My next personal preference would be to use your hair rather than blur your face.    But be careful.    Some ladies have good photos in which they have cleverly used their hair to hide their identity.   Others look as if they couldn't be bothered to brush their hair that day.    As regards masks I do think it depends upon the mask and the image you wish to portray.  i think it should be mask and costume together rather than look as though the mask was an afterthought. 

 

Photographer:     Why not first have some amateur photos taken by a friend or perhaps a client you trust (you might want to reward him in a way that he would appreciate :) ) and then show them to a few existing clients?      You will probably have 3 or 4 clients that you could show them to for an honest opinion.     You might even have a first time client with whom you have got on so well that you feel you can ask them.   But don't ask someone who will only tell you what they think you want to hear.    Remember that nobody objects to being asked for advice.   Particularly a client in the client/escort situation.

 

I've seen photos taken by professional photographers that were "not fit for purpose".    They might be good photographers in other area but clearly have not understood what kind of photos were necessary for a WG.     And I don't mean "smutty" photographs.    It isn't necessarily the lady's fault that she is not certain herself of what she wants or that she has not been able to get across what she's looking for to the photographer.   It's the photographers job if they are doing it for a living.

 

Perhaps look at websites/profiles of WG's who are far enough away from you in London that they do not regard you as competition and contact them.    "I really like your photos.   Would you recommend your photographer/"    They can only say no.   it would be worth travelling 60 - 90 minutes to get what you want.   But don't necessarily say no to amateur photos.  Do you perhaps have a friend who would be prepared to spend a few hours with you taking photos in different costumes and with different makeup?    If you don't think your flat is good enough to provide a good background then book a night in a decent hotel and use that but make sure that the hotel or group can't be identified.   But make sure that if you do use premises other than your own because they look better that you don't mislead clients.  It doesn't go down well if the luxury flat in the photos turns out to be a bedsit.

 

Different appearances.    Some men like the young fresh girl look whilst other men might prefer the other end of the scale, the AH look.    Show potential clients that you can be what they want you to be.    Important for dinner dates.

 

Make sure that there is nothing in the photos that you don't want to be there.  :ph34r:    Hope this has been of some  help.    Enjoy yourself.  :D

I like self taken shots as opposed to professionally taken ones.

My current favourite regular ( well 3 times is regular to me :) )has this type on her profile and in her private gallery, there are a couple of face shots but the face is blurred out. Nearly all of them are shots of her in her favourite brand of lingerie, and I think they're great. After seeing them, and her well written profile, I pretty much knew I was in for a great time and so it proved...

Thank you for your contributions and wonderful advice. 

 

I'm going to try a combination of the two, fingers crossed the professional shots work out well  ^_^

Can't really answer your question, but what I am surprised to learn, is that my new Lady earns more from her website at £1 a day, minimum 30 days then from Escorting and her AW private gallery and videos.

 

I have uploaded all her AW pics and vids (these are all of me and of low quality), her website pics are all professionally taken.

I'm probably having a senior moment, but I'm not sure I understand you! I take it that your "new Lady" is Lady Sonia, and that her AW pics and vids feature you, presumably hot rodding her? If that be the case, then at £30 quid a month, with automatic renewal unless cancelled, I'm not surprised that the web site is more profitable than the shagging.

 

But I've completely misunderstood?

Lady Sonia does not do escorting. Her husband and herself have a much more lucrative business than from escorting. There are ladies that appear on the site that escort but S & G do not.

Sophiabella- my advice- put the more glossy pro pics on your website but then post fun self taken ones on your blog and/or twitter. I think guys like to see the 'real' woman as much as the glossy perfect one and it adds value to those who follow you. Even silly not very overtly sexy pics are a turn on. I think many clients, at least the ones you want to attract like to see a rounded individial not *just* a sexy body.

No, not Lady Sonia,  BBWREDBEX on AW, www.bbwred.com I'm lucky to live near her and so prefer the real thing!

Just had a look at your profile, why worry about your photos, you look fantastic.

If it wasn't for all your feedback I would be worried about a scam, its a bit late to worry about blurring your face.

Even though you are at the top of my price range, I would consider seeing you, going by your profile, pictures and feedback, though I realise coming from me that's not much of an endorsement. :)
