High-Impact Pics Sameday Service
When you book your shoot you will receive an email or text confirming the date you have booked within a couple of hours. Please do not turn up on site until we have sent you your confirmation email or text message. Our trademark is super value London dating photography shoots where we will give guidance on how to pose and what to wear. It's important to stress that ALL of the photographs that you will receive at the end of the shoot will be usable in your dating profiles ie any shots where you inadvertently blink or " look a bit weird " or shots that we think wont work on the apps will be deleteted immediately from your sd card and these will not count in your 50, 75 or 100 shot selections : generally there are many deletions during the average shoot so you only end up with the very best 50,75 or 100 images for your profile. We offer three shoots as follows :
50+ high impact images in 30 minutes with 4 changes and 4 locations. This is our most basic express shoot which is useful if you are short on time and even with just four changes will give you variety with high contrast black and white, popular colour, retro and other film grades etc. You will need to bring a 16mb SD card or purchase one from us for £10.
75+ high impact images in 60 minutes with 6 changes and 6 locations. This is a step up from our basic shoot and gives you more images, changes and locations.
You will need to bring a 16mb SD card or purchase one from us for £10.
100+ high impact images in 90 minutes with up to 10 top changes and 10 locations, a free new SD card, and the all important appraisal and breakdown of your best main and supporting images . Shooting time will finish approximately 20 mins before the hour and a half session is over, and this time is used for a full review of your pictures. This is our most popular flagship shoot and will take your dating success to new levels. A new SD card will be provided for you when you arrive at the shoot and you will take this away with with you, with all your photographs on it after the shoot.
At the end of the appraisal shoot your photographer will sit down with you and take you through your very best photographs from the shoot , and the file numbers of each image will be written down for you and seperated into your strongest main and supporting photographs. You will then take the sd card with you and will have all of the images to keep from the shoot that day. We will meet you outside the main entrance of easily accessible Putney Bridge Tube Station which is 12 mins from Victoria Station on the District Line. It has super backdrops, is near the river, and is an all-weather location.
Unfortunately due to the current situation and lockdown, we have lost our changing facilities, but top changes are no problem at quieter points along the route. However, in practice, if you wear tracksuit bottoms under your jeans or chinos then there is no reason why you cannot change trousers or jeans at one of the quieter locations too. Parking is notoriously difficult around Putney Bridge during the day and we strongly recommend you take public transport to the start location. If you have to drive, be sure to download the Ringo App for the parking bays. We guarantee this loss of facilities will not effect the quality of your shots in any way whatsoever.
The appraisal session covers around 10 locations and will include an excellent selection of main and supporting photographs for the dating apps. Our photographer will share some key profile tips with you along the route and during your appraisal in order that you get the most out of your images. On our flagship shoot we will work through all the images with you and and pick out your best 12 images from the shoot with you after the session to give you your two best profile selections : our appraisal will point you in the right direction as regards choices but you will still leave with all the 100+ images taken that day.
Shoots include free of charge Editorial High Contrast Monochrome (uber cool darker black and white), Retro, HDR painting (fabulous filmposter-look), tinted, and filter effects, and these are added whilst on location to your pics to give your profile the wow factor.
You can bring as many top changes as you like to a maximum of 10 on the appraisal shoot, and this is usually a comfortable number to allow for changing times etc. One pair of dark jeans is sufficient as on the apps the most successful photographs are always going to be those featuring your top half : these photos always have more immediate impact and depth than boring, samey old full-lengths which tend to have a negative double-whammy effect ie you are either lost in the background or the swiper then has to zoom in on you to see a closer view of your your face (if they have the time and can be bothered).
Try and wear plainer or single colour items when you are choosing jumpers, shirts, t-shirts, coats, ties, dresses, tops as we have found bold stripes, loud checks or strong patterns can work against you in your photographs and avoiding them gives you an altogether 'classier' look, which on the apps always makes you more enticing. Unfortunately we are unable to include large brand or fashion logos in your shoot for two reasons : firstly they can be a distraction as they tend to draw the eye away from the subject (you) and can spoil that so important first moment when he or she swipes you, and weaken the intensity of all our hard work ! Secondly, we've found through experience that you will get a better response on the apps wearing a generic, plainer or even understated shirt or top which wont put off some potential partners who may not want to swipe someone looking too "blingy" or too "showy" due to a designer-logo in the middle of the photograph. We want you to appeal to EVERYONE on the apps and not just a few, in order that you achieve the maximum choice of dates and improved responses. Don't buy clothes especially though, as we can 'cheat' with angles and camera positioning, so you can still be featured with your favourite shirt or other outfits. If you've really got no other clothes other than ones covered in large branding, then don't go out and spend lots of money on a new wardrobe : visit the menswear departments of the major supermarkets and pick up some plain t-shirts or sweat-shirts in single colours and perhaps a hoodie and let us do the rest in the photographs, where we will shoot them in a way that nobody will be able to tell whether your clothes are designer or high-street.
Above all though please don't be put off by the groundwork or preparation as these are fun shoots and you will be pleased with the results. We will walk to and arrive at approximately 8 locations, all in reasonably close proximity. This makes sure your profile shots will all have different backgrounds,and when combined with our different film grades, they wont look in the slightest like you took them on the same day.
Natural-looking authentic profiles are our goal. Our profile photos are used widely on all the major dating apps including Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and POF . We will not leave the shoot until you are completely happy. On the Appraisal shoot, our paps will let you see your best shot from each location on the camera as the session progresses. We know exactly what sort of images will work for you due to our experience as dating photo experts, and the fact that we specialize only in Tinder and Bumble photography, but feel free to make suggestions and requests too at any stage.
After The Shoot
Its important that you try at least one or two of our photographers chosen six shot profiles in full for each of your profiles, which involves all your new picpaps shots exclusively and doesn't include any of your your old shots, for maximum effectiveness on the apps. We particularly recommend that you use none of your old shots in your dating profiles as will typically weaken your new online presence. We also recommend rotating profiles every 2/3 weeks or if if you haven't got the time then at least change the main picture.
In bad weather we have a raft of undercover locations so all dating photoshoots will still go ahead. If you do need to cancel or reschedule please give us at least 24 hours notice if possible.
