I love helping individuals look their best, build confidence, take better photos and get more quality dates. As a regular contributor to The Good Men Project, PlentyofFish and Meddle, my approach to online dating photos goes beyond photos - it entails a holistic strategy including: Wardrobe Tips, Dating App Recommendations, Review of Existing Photos, Bio Optimization and Offline Strategy. 


THE DETAILS

A quick questionnaire will help me evaluate photos, social media presence and profiles. Next, I review answers + profiles and provide analysis on app choice, photo selection and bio optimization. I will use the info to plan a photo shoot that highlights your hobbies, essence and style so that the photos are natural, confident, playful and candid. I shoot outdoors and indoor public places with natural light. A photoshoot might involve a cocktail bar, beer garden, hiking trail, park, coffee shop, street art or more. 


PRIVACY

I do not post photos online; your privacy is of utmost importance to me. I work with C-suite executives, high profile individuals, those new to dating as as well as extremely shy individuals. 


CONTACT

I prioritize referrals but I do work with new clients too. If you are recently single, have changed your appearance, do not have any recent photos or are looking for help with online dating, contact me and I will review your request. I seek out genuine, sincere individuals - those I would introduce to friends, family & colleagues. My goal is to improve the societal dating pool. I schedule shoots 1-10 days out. 


PAYMENTS

I accept Square Cash, Venmo, Personal Check and Cash at the time of the photo shoot. I do not charge a deposit but if you cancel I will ask you to seek out another photographer.

Q: I am a bit shy, how do you conduct your photo shoots in public?
A: I am the most resourceful, knowledgeable and discreet photographers around. I carefully select areas to accommodate schedules as well as maintain privacy.

I am not like other photographers who use flashes, big stands with umbrellas or makes people hold unnatural poses.

Q: Do you have examples of online dating photos?
A: No, I do not. Privacy is super important to me.


Q: Where do you primarily shoot photos?
​A: I mostly shoot in the Embarcadero, Financial District, Hayes Valley, Haight-Ashbury, Presidio, Mission District, Pacific Heights, Union Square, Mill Valley, Downtown Oakland neighborhoods.
