As a sex worker, photos are a BIG deal. Having a good profile picture is ESSENTIAL. This photo is what will catch a client’s eye when they are scrolling through the endless pages of an escort directory. You have one chance, one photo, to catch the client’s attention and draw them in. You want to use this opportunity to stand out from the sea of Agent Provocateur clad bodies draped on hotel room beds.
The perfect shoot location is an integral part of a great photoshoot and can dramatically impact how much your photos POP. Here are my unique photoshoot location ideas for escorts who are looking to stand out from the crowd.
Production spaces and studios are great settings for photoshoots and are often highly desirable due to the controlled environment (i.e., the ability to manipulate lighting, change backdrops, move furniture, etc). Production space rental websites such as Spacely, Creative Spaces and Set Book allow you to find affordable, local production spaces and studios to use. You can easily find your dream location based on look, price and distance.
Outdoor locations are a common and accessible location. From nautical beach scenes to luscious forests, the outdoors is a beautiful setting and FREE! Check out your local parks, forests, beaches, and wildlife areas for free location spots to use in your next shoot.
Urban backdrops can make for a beautiful setting – think rooftops, street views, skyscrapers. A quick Google of your city name along with ‘photoshoot locations’ should give you interesting streets in your area, storefronts, available rooftops and more. Urban settings will give your photos an eye-catching backdrop, far from the conventional white hotel sheets.
This one is entirely dependent on YOU and how you market yourself. Are you a foodie who loves dinner dates? Maybe there is a bar with a killer view or a restaurant with an impressive wine cellar that you can shoot in. Are you a bit of a book nerd? I’m thinking cute lingerie, thigh-high socks and a sprawling wall of books. Do you love yoga? Take that mat down to the waterfront and get some awesome shots. Gamer? Head to an arcade. You get the idea. This is your opportunity to show your personality while also making your photos stand out from the crowd.

Disclaimer: We live in a world where sex workers are rarely accurately portrayed in the media. As such, we often expect public figures who are sex workers to be everything for us. I cannot, and do not, speak for all sex workers. I speak from my experience of working in Australia in a legal brothel and as an independent escort. While I try to be inclusive, it is impossible for me to relay every experience of sex work – especially if I haven’t experienced it myself. Please remember this when reading my work.
I use affiliate links for some products in my blogs. This is an easy way for me to track which products you enjoy. I do earn a (very) small commission from this, depending on the product. All products recommended to you are products I truly use and enjoy.
Save yourself a whole lot of time (and frustration) by letting me write your copy. Think clear, concise brand messaging, words that prompt action and avoid clichés – I’m an expert when it comes to strategy and creating clever copy that speaks to clients.
