I used to be 100 pounds heavier than I am now, and a 5 if you squinted. But I still got damn good results on dating apps since I knew how to take good Tinder pics.
Now that I’ve worked HARD on my attractiveness, I do even better, and I can confirm that the more attractive you are, the more results you can get, but most guys can get what they want on dating apps right now just by improving their photos.
- Good Tinder photos can significantly improve your dating app results.
- Show a clear face, body, and cool lifestyle moments.
- Prove you’re social by adding 1 Tinder pic with friends
- Friends can help capture authentic shots; professional photoshoots offer an edge.
Who am I though? Why should you trust me?
Some people call me “The Tinder Whisperer,” but I prefer Joe.
Much more humble. I’m writing this as a guest post for Menprovement to help you guys get matches on dating apps, find a girlfriend or find whatever it is you are looking for.
I used to get very few matches and even fewer dates. I’d be stuck swiping on the apps, staring at the few matches I had, wondering what I did wrong. Why did they stop responding? Why did they flake on me?
I went out the next day and practiced taking Tinder pictures. I got better and better, adding a new photo and swiping, then repeating the process.
I eventually matched with a very attractive woman, whom I dated for the rest of my trip, curing my loneliness and desperation and giving me insight into what works and what doesn’t.
When I came back to the US, I started working hard to crack the code of what Tinder pics worked and what didn’t. Shirtless pics, group shots—you name it, and I have probably tried it.
People noticed and asked how much I charged for getting them similar online dating photos, and BOOM I was in business. Fast forward, I’ve helped over 100 guys in over 20 cities since then, and I’m still growing. (Btw, that’s me with one of my clients in the photo at the beginning of the article.)
Here are a few dating app photo poses that have helped countless men. ✅
5 best Tinder photos that actually work
Every single Tinder photo is one I personally took of one of my clients, with the exception of the second social photo, because that’s one of my own photos. 😎
Posing men for photoshoots is something I’ve been doing for years (especially online dating photos), but any of these looks can be done with a friend on your iPhone for a comparable result if access to a pro is not an option for you.
#1 The Clear Face & Body tinder Photos
The first 1 or 2 Tinder photos on your profile should be clear photos of what your face and body look like. A girl needs to know if she’s attracted to you. If she can’t tell, she’s more likely to swipe left, even if you are attractive.
After all, why would she spend her precious limited likes if she’s not even sure how your face looks?
#2 The Tinder Action Photos
By “action,” I mean something other than you sitting or standing. You’re DOING something. Some people call this a hobby photo.
Don’t be afraid to give them a window into what it would be like to date you, you’ll be amazed at how much girls like getting a peek.
#3 The Urban Walking Tinder photos
The key to dating profile photos is their candid nature. This photo helps you look candid while also looking like a badass.
This can overlap with the face/body shot I mentioned earlier, it’s an easy way to show girls what you look like clearly.
#4 The Social Tinder photos
Girls want to see that you’re “normal.” or, in other words, not some kind of psychopath.
You need to show at least one Tinder pic that proves you have a social life and a minimum level of ability to socialize. This photo helps you get there.
This is a tasteful and candid way to show that you’re social without having your friend overshadow you in the picture.
#5 The Bar tinder Photos
This shot can overlap with the social photo, but it doesn’t have to.
How to put this into action
Try taking a few of these with a friend or two! As I was figuring all this out before I offered photoshoots as a service, I went out with friends and we took photos of each other. It’s easier and more effective than popping your phone or camera on a tripod and it’s more fun too.
Find a friend who’s also interested in getting results on dating apps and help each other out!
Also, of course, I can help you directly if you sign up for a photo shoot. I live in Austin, TX, but I have traveled to more than 20 cities so far to shoot clients in their hometowns, so don’t let distance be a barrier.
