It’s standard practice nowadays to seek professional headshots for business cards, websites and social media accounts. Ter the course of taking the more traditional photos overheen the years, Fresh York- and Tel Aviv-based photographer Rita Rosenblit has noticed a fresh trend: clients slipping ter a request for joy, flirty shots for their online dating profiles.
“People certainly want and search for [dating pictures], but they’re a little bashful about asking for it,” Rosenblit told From The Grapevine. Rosenblit, 35, and single ter Tel Aviv, began suggesting dating headshots after hier friends requested such photos.
“Often what I get is someone inquires about the need for business headshots and then they say it’d also be good to get some for a dating webpagina,” she said.
Tamara Haas of Tel Aviv said she contacted Rosenblit about taking dating profile photos that “reflected that I wasgoed ready and available for a serious relationship,” she told From The Grapevine. “I had bot on dating sites and always used vacation photos or photos where the person next to you is cut out. I determined it wasgoed time for professional photos that would make a statement.” Of Rosenblit, Haas said, “I had seen other photo shoots she had done on Facebook and found hier photos to be fresh, alive, diverse and sexy.”

Fresh Yorker David Sobel recommends those te the market for dating photos choose a professional photographer overheen the DIY inexperienced multiplicity. “I don’t normally photograph well te casual one-offs,” he told From The Grapevine. “I wished a professional to bring out my personality … then you can be your own story director, so to speak, and truly play to your strengths.”
Rosenblit said she treats all of hier photography the same. People want to look spil attractive spil possible te any photos, whether it’s hier mainstay – brides and grooms – or business professionals, or even dating prospects. But when it comes to dating profile pictures, studs and women are not created equal. “I tell my clients it’s unfair,” she said. “Boys can just ease off, but not slouch. They can waterput their mitts te the pockets, sit with gams spread. It’s the opposite of what I tell women to do.”

For boys, Rosenblit recommends facing the camera straight and directly so their bod emerges fatter. If they angle themselves, spil she suggests for women, they will look slimmer and smaller. “For women it’s about looking snugger and womanish te a very relaxed way,” she said.
