Your profile picture is the best first impression that you’re going to get when it comes to webcam modeling. And that first impression happens in the blink of an eye. How a customer sees you as presented on the screen of his/her computer will either spark with that customer or not. Do your best to enhance and stylize your profile pic to show you as you wish to be seen and you’ll be doing yourself a favor. How do the best of the best do it? Top models use indoor and natural light, unique angles, and HD clarity to create inviting, attractive profile pics that fit their respective brands. Read on to see how you can use these techniques to your advantage.

First Impressions Are Everything 

Profile Pic Cam SiteFor a cam model, first impressions mean the world, and the first impression you make on a potential customer is your profile picture. Your hand-selected profile pics could mean the difference between getting more business or not. Simply said, if the picture doesn’t draw in the customer to click on your room, consider it a missed opportunity. We, at Guide to Camming, recommend using your best images. They should speak volumes about what your personal brand is all about.

Hire a Professional 

If you want the best results, go for the best in terms of photography. An experienced professional photographer can bring out your very best features, move you into complimentary color schemes, and provide you with a high standard of quality.

Further Advice

Of course, we realize that this may not be an option for everyone. So here is some advice if you plan on photographing yourself:

  1. Go HD 
    Using a camera or phone with full HD capabilities is important for viewing your photos in the best light. Another great option is to use your HD Webcam, as most will give you the option to take still images.
  2. Don’t Show Your Camera
    Candid selfies can be fun to share with your fans via social media or through a texting service like FlirtSMS. But you don’t want anything in the photograph that draws the viewers attention away from you. Invest in a portable tripod and make sure you have a camera with a countdown timer so you have the chance to strike the perfect pose before the snap.

Style Your Brand

  1. Keep the Focus on Your Body or Your Face
    Remember, you don’t want anything in the frame that could distract a potential customer from you and your look. Ensure that there’s no visible clutter, or anything else that might divert attention away from your face or body.
  2. Craft Your Look 
    Wear something that makes you feel sexy and entices customers with a lovely hint of your personality. Put on something that really makes the rest of your assets stick out, or works well with your particular fetish. Sexy outfits will attract customers and make you appear confident in what you’re selling.
  3. Focus on Angles 
    Snap a lot of test photos to discover your best side, your best positions, and your best angles. A tripod will help you position your camera to catch you at your most flattering. High-quality full-body shots of models standing or laying down tend to be the most popular on premium chat sites.

Go for the “Profile Gold”

  1. Lighting! Lighting! Lighting!
    A high-quality camera works together with clear lighting. Beach and poolside swimsuit photos might look beautiful, but the sun can be a very harsh light source. Learn how to use a screen. Ideally, multiple light sources are best for indoor photos. Remember, you won’t grab a customer’s attention if he can’t see you!
  2. Know Your Brand
    Your photos should show your body and your unique brand! If your body looks different now than it did 4 years ago, don’t use that old photograph. If your photos show you in BDSM gear but you’re not a fetish model, don’t use them. Photos that mirror your true self will attract customers who want the fantasy you’re selling. However, pictures that misrepresent you will make it difficult to establish trust with a new fan and attract visitors looking for something you don’t offer.

Profile Pic Webcam ModelingAs a model, popular webcam sites like Flirt4Free provides the option to make multiple photos available on your bio. Take advantage of this. It’s worth it.

So get to it, aspiring model extraordinaire, and start snapping some pics!

You’ll be rocking your webcam career in no time!
