As I discover new tips, I will update this post, but keep in mind that nothing posted here should be taken as legal advice or any form of a guarantee. Eros determines when and how they apply their advertisement rules. Edited photos can not be replaced.
1: You do not show your face clearly in your photos, and
You have not submitted at least one unaltered/unedited photo where your face is clearly visible wearing the same outfit as in the outfits being submitted for your current ad.
Glasses, hats, hair, or partially visible faces are not acceptable to fulfill this new requirement.
Submit the unaltered photos through the Eros Upload Document Button only.
6)Try to do your own makeup because you don't think a pro makeup artist is worth it
This is a professional glamour photoshoot, and you should look polished and not how you typically look every day. Yes, professional makeup makes all the difference and is worth the investment. High-definition photography and strobe lights will capture more of your beauty and flaws, so you need to have your makeup done professionally. Some women believe that natural makeup is the way to go since they do not want to have much makeup in their photos. To achieve a beautiful natural make-up look like the ones you see in magazines and all professional sites, you will always need a professional makeup artist. A Pro Makeup Artist uses the right colors and a combination of make-up pigments that glow in a smooth, flattering way. There is no such thing as having a little make-up and achieving a natural look on your own. A natural makeup look involves more advanced steps, which include applying the right makeup that conceals your blemishes and dark spots, contouring and sculpturing your facial features, and thinning out your face as well as warming up your skin tone in the spots needed. Then, a highlighter is added to your cheekbones which brings them out and gives a subtle glow to the face. Eyebrows are filled in and defining, and the lips while making sure the t-zone stays matte for a glowing finish. Remember that photography is not real life. Many things are not noticeable in real life, but they will be noticeable in a photograph since you can stare at them forever. Go all the way with a professional Glamour look!
Achieving Professional Photos that look amazing from top to bottom is my passion, but you can't show up unprepared to have great results. A professional photoshoot includes having the right outfits, locations, backgrounds, lighting, makeup, angles, styling, manicure, and many other details than just taking a regular snap photo. Check out mybefore and after of real women to see my final results.
7) Wear Jeans, tight socks, or any other tight outfits on the day of your shoot
You want your body and skin to be as flawless as possible, and any clothing that is not loose-fitting will leave Marks on your skin that can take over an hour to disappear. These marks will be obvious in high-resolution photos, so please wear loose-fitting clothes to your shoot. Yes, they can be photoshopped out, but the more your skin needs to be edited, the more work it will be and the harder it will become to leave your skin looking natural.
8) Buy a bikini for your shoot that covers up more because you are not feeling 100% confident about your body
Choose a swimsuit that lays flat on your body with No excess fabric wrinkling. The material should lay flat like a tight pair of jeans. It needs to be right for your body type. The colors and prints need to enhance your natural skin color. Go for solid colors that look sophisticated. Keep in mind that the focus is on you and not your bikini (unless this is a bikini catalog shoot). Tops need to have good support if you need a natural lift. If your body is not very toned, do not choose a string bikini because the strings and thin straps will cut into your skin. If you are planning for a sexy photoshoot for a Victoria’s Secret or Sports Illustrated style, I always recommend choosing Brazilian-Cut swimsuits. This is not the time to wear something conservative, traditional, or something you would wear with your family. Choose a sexy, classy, elegant bikini. The best brands carry the best quality; they are stylish and have a modern, sexy, and not wide cut. No full bottom bottoms, please! This is a sexy glamour shoot and not a family shoot. You are in Miami, where less is more, and if you want your butt to look bigger, wear a tiny cut bottom so that the curve of your bottom is easier to be captured in the photos. Remember that all posted images are edited, and together with my lights and photography, you will look fabulous!
9) Buy/bring the wrong lingerie to your shoot for your body type
You need to know your body type to wear the right lingerie and outfits that will best balance your look. Not all lingerie styles look the best on all body types, and knowing which type of lingerie to wear can make all the difference, especially for your glamour photoshoot. Fashion experts today have created 11 categories to give you more precise advice when choosing your best lingerie. Are you an Apple, Pear, Long Torso, Hourglass, Short Torso, Ruler, Carrot, Ballerina, Busty, Small Chest, or a Petite body type woman? Read the full article on women's Body Type here to know what goes with you.
10) Ask your photographer for a Sunset Beach Shoot here in Miami
Remember that the sun rises in the East, and so here in Miami Beach, we have only Sunrise beach shoots but no Sunset beach shoots. The Sun at sunset is behind the Miami downtown buildings, and the lighting on the beach is very melancholy and not colorful. A Sunrise Beach shoot is fantastic because you don't have to worry about it turning dark in the next 15 minutes, but it does mean very early setups if you want to have a Sunrise Beach shoot. We would need to be at the beach ready to shoot by 5:30 am during the summer hours. The best times to shoot at the beach, in general, is early morning or late afternoon when the sunlight's angle is more flattering and the lighting is softer. Remember you will need clear skies and low winds, so please check the Miami Beach weather and with me a few days before your shoot.
Food is energy, and posing takes energy. If you are not used to posing, you will notice that it does take work to hold glamorous poses, especially while trying to keep a pleasant facial expression. Trying to lose a few quick pounds right before your shoot will only leave you with low energy, hungry, and with a little patience. Plus, and the difference will not be noticeable. One thing that the camera does pick up is your mood. But, I know what you are thinking; if I eat, my belly will show. Know this: I will pose you in positions where your body looks the best, and in combination with the lighting, I can edit your body, but I cannot edit your expression or low energy. You are perfect the way you are now! A photoshoot is not a 10-minute weigh-in that you are in and out of. This is at least a half-day event from start to finish between the hair & makeup and getting ready.
2) Stop drinking water/fluids because you don’t want to be bloated.
Unless you are a professional bodybuilding athlete and are going to be shooting for a muscle magazine, you should never try to lose water weight before a shoot. Water keeps your body functioning right, and together with proper eating and rests, water helps your skin and face looking fresh. If your shoot is outside or at the beach, the heat here in Miami Beach is overwhelming, especially if you are not used to standing in the sun for a long time. You will feel dizzy and weak if you are poorly hydrated, and it will be more difficult to hold your poses and have a pleasant expression. Plus, you can even faint. I have had it happened to a girl I was shooting. She banged her head when she fainted.
3) You are in South Beach, so hit the clubs and the drinks and stay up all night. The make-up artist will not come till 6:30 am so you have plenty of time to party!
No, no, no! If you read points 1 and 2, you will have already figured out why you need to be well-rested and feel healthy and strong for your photoshoot. If you are shooting at the beach, you will have an impossible time trying to keep your eyes open. This is the number 1 most common challenge with my beach shoot is girls not being able to open their eyes at the beach even if it’s in the shade. If you have sensitive eyes, you need to rest even more before your beach/outside shoot.
4) Apply a Self-Tanning lotion before your shoot because you look too pale.
Applying Self-tanning cream/lotions on your skin look terrible in digital photos. They leave an orange tone on your skin that looks un-human, and it is complicated to correct. Plus, your skin will look plastically because the self-tanning cream/lotion covers the natural skin glow. Also, self-tanning cream/lotion rubs off on your clothes, and anything you touch or lay on –it‘s a big mess! And, your face will not match your body. It’s better to look pale and human than orange (unless you are impersonating Donald Trump). Instead, tan yourself 1 week before the shoot 3-4 times at the beach or at a tanning spa to achieve a natural tan color, but don’t overdo it and show up with red skin or face! I rather you do nothing than risk having a sunburn for your shoot. If you are too pale, the best option is to have a professional spray tan, but you must follow their steps and preparations to have good results for a photoshoot.
5) Do not shave/wax or get a fresh manicure and pedicure.
The photoshoot is about you looking the very best and glamorous. This includes some pre-shoot preparations. Yes, have a fresh manicure and pedicure. The camera will pick up that your nails need to be filled in and that you have not shaved in your delicate areas in several days. To look beautiful, it’s all in the details from your head to your toes. When you look at a luxury product, it doesn't have cheap parts. It's well made of the finest products in all details. These details on a woman include being freshly wax or shaved under your underarms, legs, and bikini area. WebMD recommends: “To avoid irritation, don't work out or wear tight clothing immediately after grooming. Skin can be extra-sensitive to bacteria, moisture, and chafing from your workout clothes.” You should shave the day before to help prevent developing a rash.
Now that you have these 5 tips, you are better prepared for your next photoshoot.
For this post, I interviewed web designer/webmaster David Allen from EroticMediaWorks.com. David has over 25 years of industry experience specializing in escort websites and adult model marketing. So, I know he talks from experience.
What's your professional recommendation when it comes to photos on any website?
Get the best photographer you can afford! From all my year's building sites, I can tell you that my job just became much easier when you have great photography. It's simple. The better the images are, the better your site can look. I can create the best custom state-of-the-art website in the world, but a bad photo will still look bad no matter how nice a site you have. Although an amateur might take a good snapshot, a professional has additional skills in things like posing, lighting, and Photoshop to ensure the end result is perfect. Having great images on your site can make a huge difference to your conversion rate, and ultimately the income your website will generate.
1) It shows you are serious about your business
Nothing says amateur like blurry, poorly lit, bad photos. And who wants to do business with an amateur? Pro Photos show that you are a serious business, and your customers will see the value in what you are charging for your product or service. The top charging escorts always use high-quality photography that complements their websites. Every serious escort business needs a great website, and I would argue that you can't have a great website without great photography.
2) Helps your business stand out
The online market is now highly competitive, not like when I started building websites 25 years ago. In the current digital age, you need any edge you can get. Online potential clients are bombarded with over 5,000 images every day, and the average attention span has dropped down to less than 8 seconds. That's all the time you have to make an impression, and regular photos are just not going to cut it.
Pro Photos stop people in their tracks and capture the attention of your visitors. You want your potential clients to pause and take a closer look. This is why you must choose escort photography specializing in the type of glamour photography you'll like to show on your site. If the photos make you stop and look, it will also make your clients stop and look at you.
3) Defines your Target Clients and sets the mood for them.
They say a picture is worth 1000 words, and this is still true and even more crucial when it comes to an escort's site. As an escort, you are selling a fantasy to men, and a man's fantasy starts with what he first sees. Which fantasy do you want to set in your potential client's mind?
High-quality professional luxury images will evoke a feeling of your escort service being exclusive. In contrast, bad/regular photos will evoke a feeling of cheap escort service to your potential clients.
The quality of the photos you use will directly reflect the quality of the service your clients will expect to receive and also the amount they are willing to invest in your escort service.
