Do Your Dating Photos "CONNECT? They Should: Register For Zoom Link

Needs a location

Of course, your photos should give someone a good sense of what you look like. But what if it was also possible for your dating photos to also give someone a sense that they also kind of know you a bit, and even feel a connection with you. Could you imagine the added value that would add? Have a look at the photos above to see what I mean.

"What matters more than anything when it comes to your online dating profile? One word: Photos. Photos can drastically increase your chances of getting more communication and dates. "

What if that lovely photo of you with a smile on your face can give someone a sense of you actually being happy and not just what you look like with a forced smile? Does it make sense that this is so crucial that it should be an essential element in your dating photos? What if your photos could cause the viewer to feel a real connection with the potential match? Does a pretty picture with a forced or fake smile do that?

Well, it is possible, and I will teach you how to do it.

In this workshop you will:

  • See samples of photos with and without "connection" - I'll let you see if you can tell the difference and decide for yourself how important it is.
  • Learn how to completely change the value of the photos that are already about to be taken with simple instructions for the one with the camera
  • Learn what you can do as the subject to ensure that those photos have the connection value that will greatluy improve thier value

With a photo that catches you "being happy," the person looking at it can start imagining what it might be like to be with this happy/content/playful person. Can you imagine how much more powerful this kind of photo would be for this particular purpose that online dating photos have? This is to give someone as much of a sense as possible of what you're like to help them decide if it would be worth their time/effort/emotional investment/money to go on a date with you. Can you imagine how vital it would be to be able too see proof in a photo that you are actually a happy/content person?

Of course, what you look like is essential. But if you're looking for a relationship, doesn't it make sense that this "connecting" quality is necessary too? It's really what online dating photos should be since the whole purpose is to help someone get a sense of the person in the pictures to see if it might be a match.

Well, these kinds photos are, in fact, possible for you to take on your own if you know how to do. And in this workshop, I'll teach you how.

Why me?

My name is Jon Fischer. I'm a professional photographer, I'm the primary organizer of this Meetup Group. I happen to be a rare specialist in online dating photography. There wasn't a course in online dating photography when I started doing this. So over the last 15 years and with about 1000 clients for this purpose, I've had to figure out what made a dating photo work best and how to take those photos. With the guidance of professionals in the dating industry, I realized how essential "connection" photos were for this purpose. I then had to figure out how to capture these photos for all my clients.

Of course taking a photo of you BEING happy is tricky unless it was a rare accidental candid photo when you were unaware of the camera. But when a camera is pointed at you, most likely, the only thing on your mind is that the camera is pointing at you. No real joy there! :-) Happy emotions usually disappear.

In this workshop, I will share some of my secrets so that you can bypass that natural reaction when the camera is pointing at you and “catch yourself being happy!” I can't wait to teach you what I know! It is fun and VERY easy
