“I told her I was a Pit-bull”: Ex model launches dating photography service in London, from autumn 2015



“Have you ever exaggerated in your dating profile? Have you ever used old photos, bad crops or poor quality selfies? From now on you don’t have to. Because the two of us will find your “WOW” factor. This is the reason why I launch my business, MyDatingPhotos.com” said Laura Gub who has experience in both modelling and online dating.

As a model, Laura Gub was never short of dates. This changed after she left modelling behind. That’s when she joined dating sites and she got immediately frustrated by clichés as above, by bathroom mirror selfies, by shirtless photos of men or the ones where the ex was cropped out.

“I replied to guys who had the best photos. We all do. I’ve realised that when one of my earliest dates was with a guy who had dated about 150 women throughout a 3 year period. Women loved his profile. He was a next door type of guy, however, he made an effort to have good photos and an interesting “About Me” section. That could not be said about the great majority of men on online dating sites. Only a handful of people made an effort to upload really good photos. They were the ones who won dates.”

But not only men use these kind of photos. She felt compelled to do some research with the help of her online dater friends. It turned out many women used photos that were misleading, as well.

“Fact is that profiles with good photos are nine times more likely to get communication. Dating success doesn’t come through using crops of larger photos or poor quality selfies. Most importantly, the photos are the primary tool to express who you are.”


“Charming natural gestures”: Dani’s photo shoots are about the soft side of effeminacy.

“My mission is to show that people don’t need a model portfolio to achieve their dating aims but need photos that show their personality. Natural is the main focus in my work.  My pictures show the charm and the genuineness of everyday behaviour and gestures. As an ex-model I know what works and what doesn’t.”

MyDatingPhotos.com offers Single Photo Shoot, a 30 – 45 minutes shoot which costs £150 for six images, or Twin Photo Shoot for 2, which lasts 60 -90 minutes and costs £200 (£100/person) for six images/ person.

Ms Gub says that “During my modelling career I developed a keen sense of style and a strong eye, for the right picture. It turned me into a hobby photographer, snapping every scene that caught my eye. And people. Then, when a mate asked me to take photos of him and later told me about his success on Tinder, an idea was born. That idea is now a genuine service that gives people the opportunity to get attention and dates. It is called www.MyDatingPhotos.com.
