Professional photos for online dating
Men and women are both visual so it's imperative that they have professional photos." Online daters are catching on.Dating has grown between 25 and 33 percent year-over-year since its launch in 2007, after Gooch had a event in his New York gallery.In June, Max Schwartz, a Brooklyn-based photographer, launched (not associated with the Tinder app that lets users evaluate other people through swipes to their photos - right means you "like" someone, left means you don't). "I randomly took a picture of one of my coworkers and he put it on his Tinder, and he started getting a lot more swipe rights," he recalled.Schwartz created humorous Craigslist ads promoting his online dating photo service and attracted attention, both positive and negative. Not to be confused with Glamour Shots, these photos fall somewhere between an actor head shot and an exterior portrait, said Gordon Gooch, founder of Dating And so another industry has been born: professional profile-picture photography. "People are becoming more aware that they have a personal brand and that they need to take care of it," says Gordon Gooch of Dating Headshots.
