With the rise in popularity of dating apps that focus mostly on your photos rather than a matching algorithm or a lengthy profile, you must have great photos if you want to go on dates. Gone are the days when you could have grainy flip-phone quality photos on your dating profile and excuse it away. With so many of us carrying around a decent camera in our pockets, the bar has been raised. Dating photos are becoming more and more important, and the standards for the quality and content of those pictures are only going to increase. I may be a dating “expert” but even I can take a few pointers from someone who knows a thing or two about the importance of good dating photos…and that’s why our guest for this episode is Saskia Nelson.
Saskia Nelson is the founder of the world’s first & coolest dating photography business, Hey Saturday, and is a leading industry expert in the UK &US on all things dating photo related. You can find her on twitter at @Saskia_Nelson, and on the web at www.heysaturday.co. Saskia knows a thing or two about what makes for a great dating profile photo, so I wanted to have her on the podcast to give you all, and me, some tips to make sure the photos we use on dating sites are telling the right story about who we are. We get into what sort of pictures make people swipe right, common mistakes people make, the advantages of having professional taken dating photos, prepping for great photos, and why your dating profile should feel like a magazine cover.
Good Luck Out There.
