I am meeting a very good friend in Leeds tomorrow, he's a professional photographer, as well many other things. I've packed about 10 nice shirts, hot jeans, a dozen thongs and jocks. What sort of pics would appeal more. We've a hotel suite booked at a very plush five star for the night so full advantage will be made of it exceptional location

 

Do plush staircase pics, plush shower pics appeal, nice clothes, city outdoor settings. Any advice please

Hey Steve,

 

Of course it would be interesting to hear our clients' opinion but all I can share is my own.

 

As a photographer and as an escort I would recommend to stay away from busy backgrounds that will detract from the subject of the picture: You. Great hotels are amazing places to have pictures taken because they offer ample opportunities for clean, polished and neutral backgrounds.

 

For this kind of product what tends to work best is plain non-reflective backgrounds, flattering light, reflected or diffused is better than direct, comfortable poses, smoothed out, perfectly fitting clothes (No fabric bunching up, underwear has to be flattering and the right size... and perfectly clean) and next to no props.

 

What matters most is that you understand your product well and that you let us see your product clearly with your finished pictures. Make sure your write up is visually mimicked by your pictures and that both are conveying the same message

 

It wouldn't hurt to take a picture Safari checking out escort ads. You might not learn what will work for you, but you will definitely learn what doesn't: kitchen shots, busy living rooms, messy bedrooms, gilded palatial environments where the main focus goes to the environment, not you, artsy shots (At least avoid including more than one artsy shot in your ad), other people, animals (An animal will always steal the attention from a human because they are fully there, no tension, no pretension) ill-fitting clothes, especially if it's underwear- underwear should always look full, avoid heavy patterned fabrics, no hard contrast unless you are using it to enhance muscle definition, no direct lighting, no colourful clothes that will detract from your colouring or that will get attention away from you.

 

A common mistake I see especially in escort ads is pictures in red velvet and gold environments or with the escort holding expensive things like jewelry, champagne, reclining on a very expensive car, laying down on a reclining first class airplane bed, etc. Quality and attention to detail (What some people like to describe as being classy) is clearly and incontestably conveyed when you put forth pictures of great quality, when it is clear that you like to take care of the smallest detail, where you are the most polished element in the picture. A high quality service is best suggested through a carefully thought out write up and a professional and consistently warm demeanour during the set up process and also through a consistently warm and respectful public image.

 

You have a great product! Just make sure your pictures sell you, nothing else.

 

Good luck and have tons of fun! Can't wait to see the results. =)

Right after I posted my response I remembered the funniest website that I saw a while ago and after a couple minutes with my friend google I finally found it!

 

Of course I don't think you would be at risk of incurring in these guys' mistakes but this website perfectly exemplifies the common mistakes that I mentioned. These are not escort profiles, just hook up pictures, but I think we have all seen escort ads that look like this.

 

Enjoy, have a laugh... and learn what not to do! =)

I'm so glad that Juan posted first, since his suggestions are solid and informative, and so well thought out. From a clients perspective I will say that I like an escort who has pictures taken in an environment and in situations that I might take him to, including the bedroom of course. ;) Seeing pictures of you in a suit, in a hotel lobby, at the table of a restaurant for example.

 

The best example of this would be some of the photographs that Chris Eisenhower has on his website. Some are taken in business attire, partially removed, and where the photo is tightly cropped. There is one of just his lower face and you see that he is in a suit and tie, and one where he is at the bathroom sink with just a shirt and tie on. I think Those work well for him, and might work for you also.

 

I will disagree with Juan on one point. An escort with a puppy or kitten gets me everytime...;)

personally i prefer to see pics of a escort with clothes on, I want to see the "normal" guy Im about to meet!

 

I do too which is why I don't do full frontal shots. Part of the portfolio is to show potential clients how I will arrive and conduct myself

Yes this is why we've chosen a five star luxury hotel. The hotel is an English Gentleman's hotel. It's not a five star modern concrete box with a bit of art. It has a swirling staircase and swags and tails on the sash windows. Thought already went into the venue.

 

What matters most is that you understand your product well and that you let us see your product clearly with your finished pictures. Make sure your write up is visually mimicked by your pictures and that both are conveying the same message

 

Thank you. I completely understand that Juan. I plan to reword the website accordingly but the wording of the current website is near on perfect to the service I offer.

The only thing expensive is me. I don't do props

Thank you. I am hoping to have it ready by the weekend probably by Sunday night. I've an overnight on Friday taking up much of my time that day that I'll not be able to work on the pics and site until the weekend once I've got the pics back

I'm taking stylish designer jeans and an expensive tweed jacket. My normal attire for most executive appointments. Could do table yes. Great points. Thank you.

I've already seen them and he's a huge inspiration to me

Those that follow me on Twitter know I sleep with the devil child every night, I am going to Leeds to escape the white kitten

 

A tie that is not yet knotted, just the two sides hanging. A crisp long sleeved white shirt, with a few buttons open. And, a pair of those hot jeans. And of course smiles too.WG2

 

Exactly what I needed to hear and so in the last 20 minutes I packed my silk tie

 

Thank you and it will feature

 

 

Speaking just for myself, I really like to see at least one picture with a smile.

 

I don't do face pics though

 

Thank you to everyone so far this is such good feedback and so helpful. Anymore advice would be gratefully received

Roll the sleeves up a couple of times too. At least I've always been a sucker for that look.

That's a good one

 

Tell me the hotel, and I'll say "To hell with it!" for Thanksgiving,

and grab the next VA flight to London.

 

I can't wait for the photos.

 

I'm not into bow ties. I've got one but they have a time and a place

 

I'm now worried about these pics lol. They have to be good

Most importantly RELAX. Get into your sexy zone and own the camera, you should feel your most confident on this day. Try not to stress to much about location/props and wardrobe or else it will start showing in your face. Also make sure you check the photos as your going along to make sure your producing the shoots you need to get. Ask to see the photos on the camera after every couple scenes to keep yourself in check. Now go work it!!!!!!! Wishing you luck

Photos have started lol

Thank you to everyone for the advice

 

Had my photos taken on Tuesday, along with a nice lunch at Harvey Nicks, nice wine at the suite and then dinner with a very lovely friend who took the time to take out to help me out.

 

Should get them back sometime next week and then I am hoping to be able to choose a dozen or so of good ones and start the publicity machine in time for the Christmas stampede

My new website is launching very soon, sleeker than before with new colours and a whole new outlook. You might remember that I had a photosession at a swish five star hotel a few months back. Well after much delay (my fault - I broke my foot at Christmas so everything got put back a month or two) I've got a sneek preview of them. There's hundreds, these are just some I've singled out for advanced promotion. These are not the finished product. They are in a variety of different styles, filters and contrasts until I decide what will fit with the new site. These are not final copy but give you a guide of what they will be like.

 

The pics are professional yet done in an environment which makes me look natural, approachable and friendly. You don't have to show your face to look good to clients.

 

Steve
