Online dating sites attract about 20% of the Internet population. Jupiter Research, the premier marketing research company in the US, has predicted this number will continue to grow significantly. Last year Jupiter estimated that 17.2 million people viewed online personals and 2.5 million of them paid for online ads. In 2008, it’s predicted that 27.4 million will view online personal ads and 5.2 million will pay for them.
Unfortunately, many on-line daters have inferior internet dating photos or no photos at all. However, many are starting to realize that profiles with quality dating photos receive literally 10x more responses per week than profiles with lousy photos or no photo at all. DatingHeadshots Inc. (DH) is here to help the millions of on-line daters who have invested in on-line dating and want to get the most out of it. Our site is dedicated to providing online dating clients with access to the very best photographers across the U.S. and Canada.

Here’s How It Works
Photographers decide if they wish to offer (1) only studio sessions, (2) only on-location sessions, or (3) both studio sessions and On-location shoots.
Clients choose a photographer near them by entering their zip code and seeing the list of Dating Headshots network photographers nearby. The client selects a photographer and a photo package then pays Dating Headshots in full. The photographer’s payment is guaranteed.
The photographer is immediately emailed a shoot “request” for a particular date and time. The photographer can accept, reject or request to reschedule with the client.
The system is engineered to meet the needs of the photographers. We have even added a “24-hour buffer” for the photographers, so clients can only select their dating photo shoots 24 hours in advance, eliminating “same-day” surprises. This gives you plenty of time to check your schedule and see when your next DH dating photo shoot has been booked.
We offer two photo packages, the standard is 50 shots and the premium is 100 shots. The standard shoot includes 2 minor wardrobe changes and the premium offers 3 minor wardrobe changes.
The shoot specifications are for a variety of shots, from classic headshots to full body, no seamless or muslin backgrounds. All shots are casual “lifestyle” shots. The location is usually in studio or on location although many photographers will mix it up in the studio and shoot in a variety of places around the studio and right outside the studio weather permitting. The goal is a simple lifestyle shoot that is not too formal or staged and showcases our clients in the most appealing way.
Our expansion is continuing at a rapid pace; unfortunately, there are a limited number of openings available in each of our major cities. The major markets are divided into specific geographic areas, and positions are awarded on a “first-come-first-served basis”.

We look forward to viewing your application!
