I have had a quick search through the titles in this section and can't find a thread relating to photos.

I think you can get a better indication of an escorts overall proportions in a full length picture. It i so much more informative that a close up, or list of sizes. Why do so few show them?

I also feel that an outdoor setting shows a sense of adventure in an escort. I have seen pictures of a lady walking through the woods dressed in very little but cannot remember who she was.

A few years ago I had a photo like this, never again! Even though taken in mid-July, the day was dull and cool, so I was not feeling very sexy by the end of it. It also sparked a lot of enquiries from men assuming that being photographed in the woods=outdoor meets in the middle of nowhere.

Full length can be quite dull, not particularly attractive and some ladies like to try and be as unidentifiable as possible. That said there are plenty of selfie style, full length photos on many AW profiles.

 

It's also impossible to use a set of photos which fit everyone's tastes - one man will like full frontal, shots, others more artistic, some want this lingerie, that lingerie, all sorts of things. I now decide on the photos I want to pop on, and so long as they give a good idea of what I look like, plus some of my personality I'm happy with that.

A smile in a photo appeals  to me tlmore than a sultry pout. But the opposite might be true of others. 

Best for any girl to adopt the pose, clothes, setting she is comfortable with, which will attract the clients that like those clothes and the pose. I allways loved a shot of an escort posing with a hoover, she did it for a laugh, and made me laugh.

As Strawberry said, I had a few outdoor ones on my profile and it just meant I was pestered for outdoor meets so I wouldn't use any again. As for full length, I suspect it is because most women have something they don't like about themselves and choose to show off their considered best feature.

I like to see a decent range of 'full' body photos and close ups.  I also need to see enough of her face before I book her.  From past experience, I've found it far too risky to book a girl that does not show enough of her face.

For me, the photos must be high quality also.  I want to see girls that have taken the time and effort to ensure this.  She must be excellent at posing in her photos, clearly being able to show she's sexy and seductive!  A nice background (indoors or outdoors) can enhance the overall picture too.  

If I'm happy enough her photos are genuine, and I'm impressed by her from what I've seen, and attracted to her, then I make the booking.

Because everyone knows how you pose is a direct relation to how friendly, honest and fun you are in the bedroom...

Mmm I need to some new professional ones but the self taken shots I have at the moment seem to be what most guys are asking for on the internet. Im not a doll, Ill take the pictures I want in the poses I want and Ill put them onto my profile, if they attract a guy then all good, if not then its probably better for both of us if he stays away. What I find ridiculous is when guys send messages asking for a face photo and expect us to believe the when they say they wont put them online. I was daft enough to put my face photos onto my twitter for a few hours then remove them and someone had already downloaded them and shared them in several places.

 

Guys, if we dont show our face, we dont show our face, if the reason for that is good enough for us then it will just have to be good enough for you. I put half my face up, not my eyes though

When someone asks for a face photo there is no way of knowing whether they will share them or not, of course he's hardly going to say "I'm going to plaster them all over the internet and show all my mates!" is that is his intention.

As someone who does professional glamour photography it has always surprised me that escorts do not invest on professional photos very few months. There are some girls who do and also some agencies who update their photos regularly. Given that advertising costs for escorts are very low, investing in some good photos would seem a good idea.

Selfies on a phone are invariably distorted due to the focal length of the camera which has to be in focus over just about any distance.

My main hate is the current trend for trout pout poses. They make a girl look dreadful and like Victoria Beckham which is even worse!

Hi for my two bits worth I prefer the self taken shots, for me they are more realistic and a truer reflection of what the lady will look like in real life.

Maybe I'm totally wrong but I think a good professional photographer can make a sow's ear look like a silk purse if you see what I mean, plus there's the whole photo shop side of things so I tend to prefer ladies with self taken photos.

Positions wise I like to see full body and especially a good pic of their behind but then I'm a legs and ass man. I'm not a fan of the pout selfie. 

Perhaps a good blend of professional and self taken is the answer.

I realised that most of my pictures taken outside are full length maybe because I wanted to show the glorious weather, the sea and the gorgeous blue skies, whereas when I take pictures in the UK they are always indoors on a bed or a chair: with no blue skies and warm weather to inspire me, no wonder I slip between cushions to show the beautiful fabrics in the background.

If we were to have many months of blue skies and not only 2 weeks of summer in June or July probably more people would go outside to take nice pictures.  I came across some times ago of pictures of American girls and I noticed the same philosophy: the ones in Arizona, Florida, Texas or California were taking pictures in their back yards or near a swimming pool, whereas the ones located up north were taking pictures indoors.

I've noticed that selfies taken with mobile phones can be so lo-definitio,n that they can be as misleading as those taken professionally and altered electronically. I also struggle to catch myself in decent, representative life - my efforts on the whole don't capture me as well as I do actually look.

I agree and I tend to find the majority prefer self taken shots over professional since professional could easily mean photoshopped. I keep my free gallery pictures simple and not too revealing of who I am. Then have a variety of different poses in different background on my private gallery. 

I use a simple Samsung camera and sometimes my iPhone and have never had issues. I'm sure some girls like professional photos but I don't feel the need to pay for them and believe many clients (from asking) prefer "selfies" to professional. But each to their own, you cannot please everyone as each client looking at our profiles will have a different preference, so always best to have variety.

I have found that photos I take with my mobile phone tend to be particularly low definition when taken indoors in artificial light. So if you want to include mobile phone selfies in your gallery and you have the opportunity to take them during the day in a room with plenty of natural daylight, then that's probably a good option to go for.

Excellent in posing?    Not everyone is photogenic, I'm one such girl,  no matter how hard I attempt to strut my stuff it just doesn't look right so rather than take the time to out and out pose I simply find a position I'm comfortable with, set the tripod, timer and fps then let the camera do the work,  typically out of 200+ photos taken one or two make the cut. Every photo on my site was taken by me and all but one were taken as described above.  They work for me, I'm comfortable with them, none are airbushed and importantly I have copyright.   Photo shoots, high quality images, face pics, intimate pics, not for me, I'm just your common everyday strumpet, what you see ( al little rough round the edges ) is what you get.  

I'm also great at advertising myself, does it show? :D

even if you do have regular professional pix having them every few months is way over the top, a waste of money and just not needed. Most professional photographers offer a few costume changes during the shoot so you can just take along 3 different outfits and different underwear for underneath them, there you go, you have three sets of photos which you can just change every few months if you want too.

 

The thing with selfies is that you can have the time stamp showing so people know when they are taken and you really cannot photoshop phone selfies very well I think, Ive seen photoshopped selfies and they always look ridiculous. Some guys dont like professional pics because all the photographers know how to photoshop, some guys dont like selfies because of the funny angles, swings and roundabouts I guess

 

Regarding the adverting costs, it depends really, it can rack up to be honest. Thats not our only expense though, we have our rents bills and furnishings for a second property to work from plus our own cloths make up and equipment for use in the bedroom. It all adds up

The problem Ive discovered recently with the self taken shots is that when you upload them to some websites a perfectly crystal clear picture is suddently pixelated or blurred or worse...stretched sideways so you look twice as wide as the original photo...no one wants that lol

 

Get yourself a selfie stick, they are a bit fiddly but it means you can take more interesting shots if you are in the mood such as from behind or upskirt etc

For me it's also the time. A photoshoot takes up the best part of a day including planning outfits. Usually I have to either move some of my other activities aside which impacts on future availability, or take a day out of Escorting availability. Both not great when I have clients wanting to see me, or limited days available.

Thanks for all the responses. I  think that a few professional pictures add a lot to agirl's profile. Put in a few good selfies too if you wish put invariably the quality of these os poor

 

My other bugbear is a background of laundry baskets, washing up in the sink, a toilet and other crap. If a girl can't get that out of the way she gives the impression of a slovenly flat.

Anyone can take a good picture and have a good well written website, doesn't mean they are going to be an equally fantastic service provider. 

I know girls on AW who have just three pictures up, a very brief profile but are busy as hell and are very professional, quality of a photo or how well written her profile is has no correlation to how good she will be in a booking, I think that's been proven many times when it comes to reviews, someone could have easily written the profile for her and the pictures could easily be of someone else.

Clients should simply do their research. Several good pictures and a brief but detailed profile is enough to get great business. Spending £300/£400 on a multiple outfit photo shoot won't guarantee a busy phone.

I totally agree with this! It's a sight for sore eyes when you see a messy background or when the mirror is dirty that is my pet hate. When taking a picture I think everyone should inspect the photo good to ensure the background is good. Nothing to do with escorting but does anyone remember the girl on EBay who was selling a dress and managed to get half of her naked body in the pic? It went viral. The bids went through the roof, and she was informed and reuploaded the pic with a hoodie on, haha!

Come on, the majority of girls do this only for several years, very few do it for the rest of their lives. 

Most just want to pay some debts, get themselves back on their own two legs after some problems or simply do it because they have a high sex drive and eventually they will meet a guy to match their drive.
