Today is the beginning of a new era (in case you missed the memo). Saskia Nelson, the genius behind the award-winning and Internationally acclaimed Saturday Night’s Alright is in the house! She is the mastermind behind the UK’s coolest dating photography business, specialising in creating dating photos that kick ass and win dates for 100s of single people. Saskia is going to share with us how to decode dating photos like a pro. Get ready for a good laugh!

Enter Saskia:

Before setting up as a dating photographer, I spent 8 years dating online. Yes I did say 8 years. And 3 of those years were spent scrolling through pages and pages of crappy photos of guys who, despite using some of the worst photos ever taken, were in actual fact trying to impress and woo women. Incredible. You can see how I spotted the niche for my business!

Over those 3 years scrolling through some of the worst photos ever created and dating some of those guys, I became good at decoding what the dating photo actually means. I thought I’d share with you here what I learned to make your online dating experience a little easier.

Dating Photo Decoder – who is that guy really?

The man with no photo – this guy is dog ugly, married or a teacher. He doesn’t want to be spotted & mocked by his pupils… or all of the above.

Posed next to a sports car – this guy is insecure about his manhood. He’ll flirt with other women in front of you.

Pictured mid sky-dive so you can’t see his face – he’s dog ugly but adventurous.

Pictured snow-boarding so you can’t see his face – he’s dog ugly but he’s cool.

Sporting a massive beard – he’s either a hipster using last year’s photo, a bird watcher or a history teacher

Wearing a hat – he’s bald.

The guy wearing a hat posed next to a sports car – he’s bald, insecure about his manhood and will flirt with other women in front of you.

Posed on a yacht – he’s wealthy, a control freak and under 5’ 5”.

Posing with no top on – he’s kinky, proud of his manhood and will hit on your sister.

Him with a dog – oh he’s good. He knows how to attract women. He’s probably fairly emotionally intelligent. But, he may still check out your sister when he thinks you’re not looking.

The guy wearing a suit – he’s never going to leave the office in time to make it to that family birthday dinner.

Sporting a cowboy hat – he’s bald or American or kinky (or all three).

Wearing a Columbo style mac – he’s had his photo snapped as he’s on the way home from an S & M club on a Sunday lunchtime (true story).

Posing with a child which is clearly not his own – he’s trying to be as smart as the guy posing with the dog. But, he’s getting into dangerous territory. Never mess with a woman and her hormones when she’s dating.

Holding a beer – good time guy. He will flirt with other women behind your back. Oh, and don’t bank on him making that family birthday dinner either.

The guy holding a child in one arm and a beer in the other – I saw this for real and frankly I’m thinking run for the hills.

Saskia puts her extensive online dating experiences to good use on her blog. She also organizes dating workshops that focus on helping people create irresistible dating profiles. Even if you hate having your photo taken (like me) Saskia makes you feel like a star. Working with her and her team, and you might actually never want the shoot to end.

You can find her living it up here on twitter and here on facebook
