ONLINE DATING PROFILE PHOTOGRAPHER – SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. San Francisco Bay Area based online dating photographer specializing in creating beautiful photos for your online dating profile. My method is to start with a relaxed, fun, and professional environment where the resulting photos from our shoot will create fantastic images for your online dating profile. Although I shoot both in-studio and outdoors, for online dating profiles, outdoor sunlight is typically the best for crafting engaging shots that are natural, warm, and friendly. Online dating portfolio photoshoots can take place outdoors in just about any location. For instance, my studio is located in Berkeley, and I have scouted this surrounding area for unique backgrounds that are ideal for lighting online dating profile photos. So if you’re unsure of any looks you may want, leave it to me and we can get some fantastic shots around my studio. However, if you’d rather that we shoot at a specific location, I can do photoshoots in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Marin, Santa Clara, Silicon Valley, and all cities and areas in-between. Above all, my objective is always to get the shots my clients want, and to create truly one-of-a-kind images that are perfect for your online dating profile.
Online Dating Profile Photographer: TINDER OKCUPID BUMBLE HINGE MATCH COFFEE MEETS BAGEL PHOTOGRAPHER
Especially in the San Francisco Bay Area where people can be quite tech savvy, it’s important to make your online dating profile photos stand out. So whether you’re using Tinder, Hinge, OKCupid, Bumble, The League, Coffee Meets Bagel, Match.com, eHarmony, Clover, Plenty of Fish, etc., the first impression you make with your online dating profile pictures should ideally bring out the best in you. This is why I have special packages for online dating profile photography. These shoots are setup to create the best photo of yourself possible, while keeping things natural, relaxed, and inviting. Since in-studio images for online dating profiles can look too “staged” or pre-arranged, the ideal online dating photos are taken using all-natural light outdoors. As an online dating profile photographer, my job is to find the best light, and to also make this a fun experience for all, where the end result is a collection of pictures you love.
Online Dating Profile Photographer: I HATE HAVING MY PICTURE TAKEN
I think it’s important to mention that I hate having my picture taken. Why? Well, I’m definitely not a model, and I personally feel it can be intimidating and awkward having a lens pointed at me while multiple photos are taken, especially when it’s someone I don’t know for an entire photoshoot that is centered around me. So if you feel the same way, then never fear, I can relate. 🙂 So don’t worry if you’re not a model, or have never really done a professional photoshoot before. I keep saying this, but I like to provide a relaxed environment that’s fun, and in doing so, this usually results in the getting best shots. I also don’t focus on time, but rather I focus on getting shots that are going to work great for your online dating profile. You will not be rushed, and this should hopefully be a great experience for all.
Online Dating Profile Photographer: NATURAL LIGHT ONLINE DATING PHOTOGRAPHER
Natural light is simply the best light, especially for online dating portfolios. As you can see from the shots above, all were taken in natural light. To me, this is ideal for online dating portfolio photos because the result is a pure/natural appearance that attempts to capture a candid natural moment in an outdoor setting. Thus, my online dating photography packages center around an outdoor natural-light photoshoot. If you are looking for an online dating photographer, and need a Tinder photographer, an OKCupid photographer, a Bumble photographer, a Hinge photographer, a Coffee Meets Bagel photographer, a Match.com photographer, etc., I will be happy to shoot with you, where we can create excellent photos for your online dating profile.

(Below are some brief testimonials from past clients. For more testimonials, please visit my testimonials page.)
And the pictures came out great! We had discussed the types of pictures we’d take, the lighting, and locations. He totally delivered. The pictures looked how I hoped they would and I couldn’t be happier.
I will definitely go back to Mike again whenever I need photos taken.
Everything about the experience was phenomenal, and that’s exactly what it was — an experience.
Getting great photos is about more than someone who is technically impressive (which Mike is) — its about the mood and the smiles/emotions that you’re hoping to authentically convey. Big smiles look most genuine when you’re having fun, and that’s exactly what the entire shoot was: fun.
To boot, Mike knows the ins and outs of how to work with light and color to really bring out the best shots you can take.
Overall, great experience, and 20 years from now, I’ll be using these to say “this is what I looked like in my 20s”.
