I’m just gonna riff off what you currently have going and hopefully get you on a good path
You already have the looks but it’s the substance that matters. Girls mindlessly swipe through Tinder and a surprising amount of guys already have decent pics. You need to capture their attention
For starters if you don’t have a tripod and a remote shutter make those your next purchase and learn how to use them well
It’ll be awkward at first taking pictures like this out in public but once you realize nobody’s gonna be weird about it you’ll get comfortable
The goal is to go out and set up your tripod and just try as many poses as you can, literally take a couple hundred pictures with your remote shutter if you have to. One of them is bound to be passable at worst
Also make sure you’re wearing the best outfits you own. Literally plan out your outfits and check them in the mirror and pose in them before you go out to take shots
Anyways here’s the basic foundation:
- Headshot: your current one is a bathroom selfie and those tend to result in automatic left swipes. Take one outdoors, maybe at a cafe table or on a bench but just somewhere that isn’t inside your house.
- Car photo: these are also super cliche. Set up your tripod and jump on your trunk and try out a bunch of different poses and expressions. If you have a nice car (I see those leather seats) this can be a subtle status flex too. Maybe try a prop. Coffee cup comes to mind but make sure it doesn’t look like you got it from the office or a cheap shitty coffee place
- Living room pic: For this I’d say throw a strap on that sick metal guitar and plug in and get into a rockstar stance and take a video shredding as hard as you can. Try to angle it so that it looks like a friend took the shot while you were just casually hammering away at it and make sure you’re plugged in otherwise it’s just gonna look fake. The goal here is to look like you had some friends over and you’re playing to entertain them
- Shirtless shot: This needs to be outdoors in an environment where you’re expected to be shirtless. On the beach. Hiking with your shirt thrown over your shoulder. Just anything that looks natural.
Add a pic of you with friends if you have a good one and don’t think too much about what they might feel about being on your Tinder profile. Odds are they won’t care. Tell them you wanted to make sure the girls see how fun and good looking your friends are if you have to.
Hope to see you around with an update man. Rock on!
Thanks a ton guys. I feel like following the guide will put me leaps and bounds ahead of where I am now. I will come back later this week and post some follow ups this week using your ideas. I definitely went too "basic".
If anyone knows of a good professional photographer in South Florida please let me know / PM me
Just ordered the DSLR from the guide. Excited to mess with it when it gets here! As a side note, if anyone in South Florida needs/wants new pics I'd be happy to meet up once it gets here (Amazon says December 14th for the camera, but will likely get here sooner). I know a could use the help finding cool locations and getting some immediate feedback on pics.
It's awesome you're serious about improving your photos, getting that camera so quick. If you got the Canon, make sure you get the lens too.
If you're going to take each other's photos with a friend you're all set. If you're going solo, you'll want a tripod and remote trigger too.
I'm actually hitting up Miami in February so if you're in that area I'd be down for a photo session. And if you take a trip to Austin, I know there's a bunch of guys on KYIL over there. And I'll be taking a trip there in January. Been cooped up here for too long.
I went with the Nikon to try to be somewhat reasonable with the budget and knew that I also needed to buy the lens, tripod, and remote shutter. I don't mind developing the skills to use it; hell might end up liking it and having a new hobby.
As for Miami, I live in Ft. Lauderdale so that is not a far drive for me. By all means hit me up. Thanks again for the encouragement and actionable advice.
Thought I'd throw in an interim post while still waiting on camera body (shipping from Japan). In the meantime I have been doing everything I can think of to maximize the results when it does get here.
- I doubled my cardio and cut calories to be ripped AF for that outdoor pic.
- I started hitting the tanning beds.
- I put my ear piercings back in ( one of my Tinder dates REALLY liked that ) and ordered some black diamond studs for some variety/outfit matching.
- Bought new clothes too for an overall cooler style for the pics. It was time to do this regardless.
- I got the height increasing insoles because it's too much of an easy advantage to overlook for so cheap.
Switching my main pic to the douchey shirtless pic helped my get me more matches without changing anything else. It is enough to get dates/laid while I wait in addition to just hitting on girls while I'm out and about.
Btw, Jake your specific pic ideas are boss. I like the idea of standing on the trunk of the car for a pic and already found a good location for that one. The Rockstar stance playing guitar is gold too. Honestly don't know why I didn't do that one to start with lol
That's all I got for now guys. Can't wait to see the difference in response between a low effort and very high effort profile. Be back soon with some badass pics!
It's taken me some time and several photoshoot attempts to learn how to take decent photos, but I've got a few that I feel pretty good about. When I finish I'll probably pay Andy to touch them up a bit. Here's what I've got so far.
Overall, good pics. I like the UFC, guitar, and car pics. The pose for the UFC pic is great. Just get the lighting levels up a bit.
People always need to ask, what message do I want my pictures to convey? What's the goal? Hookups or a relationship? And, do these pictures accomplish that? You have an insane body, and some women will respond to that superficially for hookups. If you put in the shirtless pics, many relationship types will turn away. It would be hardcore screening in favor of fuck buddies.
Pictures that do best typically look natural, caught in the moment. Pets and musical instruments are usually positives.
If you want to get away with showing your body, and still retaining relationship women, then it needs to be natural, not staged. Have a picture of you at the beach, shirtless, with some friends. Then there is a reason for the pic. Or playing volleyball, or maybe you shirtless and hitting the heavy bag.
Similar, the car pic. A better option might be you in the car, helmet on, visor up, at the starting line and giving a thumbs up to the camera. Why is someone taking the pic? Because a friend is there watching you about to start a run. Otherwise the staged car pic might be interpreted as you showing off, being shallow.
Still, The car pic you shared is worth trying to see how it results. It still shows you with a nice car which conveys success. The helmet is the key (good). Some women will naturally wonder, why is a helmet there? It's going to invite curiosity and conversation.
The guitar pic has the best potential IMO. I'd like to see it with better lighting. Remember people will be seeing this on tiny phone screens. Pics need to be really clear and visible. Maybe you can just bring up the levels in editing. The guitar pic helps humanize you. Your body is so top shelf that some women will immediately assume you're a shallow, dumb, meathead. Otherwise, snap another dozen guitar pics with better lighting and choose the best.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
