I used to really hate it when people would ask for me to take photos for them.
Since then I've partied ALOT. Worked my own social circle and invested time to improve my PUA skill.
I think we hate it because so many people out there aren't sure what exactly you do in this situation. Some people say it's a DLV for a stranger to hand you a camera.... I'd like to think that there is a classy way to turn this into a DHV and have an opportunity to banter. Never JUST take a photo. You must create an opportunity, even if it is introducing yourself and chatting later. I used to ask girls I was attracted to take photos for me all the time!
My attitude has gone from I'm not a douche-bag... but, I'm not getting paid to photograph either... to: How can I make this an opportunity? I think it comes down to the dynamics and bares further investigating. Are you snapping GUY - GIRL photos? Are you snapping GIRL - GIRL photos? Just be aware that this tactic can be used very well to AMOG and you will see that in this field report.
I can remember one time over 6 years ago when I was new to pickup and the only thing I found to read was Date Doctor, MM. There where all these rules about what to do. Those rules never resonated with me.
Anyways, this story starts with an invitation for a hot hb10's birthday.. I've already closed her in the past and she has us posing with birthday hats and snapping photos. She keeps telling everyone the story about how when she met me I had a hand full of bananas and going off about it. We're in this little happening restaurant patio bar and obviously tonight is the casual night to be seen there.
I spot a playboy model that I closed about 5 years ago before she disappeared to LA. Wow... she looks like shit. I know she doesn't recognize me ( I look way different ), but she flirts with me again. Haha walking right between me and the person I'm talking to and saying, "oh.. excuse me", and smiling at me. Guess, I'm her type? I'm pretty sure she didn't recognize. I consider closing her again because I love italian girls with curves that won't quit, but mostly for nostalgic reasons. The thing is I knew who she was before I met her and dreamed about her being the ultimate woman before I closed her. She really started my PUA career in the past. Seeing her and remembering that success raised my state through the roof. As we walk off I hear her call out to us, "thanks guys!!!"
So.. I shake that out of my mind and leave the birthday party with my wingman to walk across the street to another bar for a bit where we can talk in private and open some girls. Shortly we decide to return to the party and find that the events have gone from the patio to the bar. As we walk in I see my HB10 friend taking shots with a group of girlfriends. She instantly starts biting me on my neck and arms and pinching my ass. Which I playoff and I'm sure to the outsider looks like I had very hard to get and high value. It was one of the reasons why I didn't take things beyond the initial hook up. Actually I kind of liked it... What I didn't like was her calling me out for shooting down the AMOGs that always came up when we were out together. That's another story.
Seated there in the social circle is a SMOKING SMOKING hot black girl HB-off the chart 10. Honestly one of the top 5 most beautiful women I've ever seen face to face. She's also one of the elite in this city. I catch her eye and we make introductions. Here comes the AMOG tactic I was telling you about.
Next thing I know.. my HB10 biter friend shoves a camera in my face, "Oh!! Take our photo!!!!" and arm bars her way with her little girl crew between me and my new target. Not that I really would have thought I had a chance with this HB10 black girl, but at this point in my PUA career I never think that way. I generally don't give a shit or care who someone is. I just feel sexual and have a good time.
So when the camera is handed to me I smile and as I look at the camera I see that the battery light is blinking. While looking from the camera to the hot black girl and back to the camera, I say to my friend, HB10Birthday girl. "Hey!! Your camera is almost dead!" I notice HB10 hot black girl is eye smiling and has sticky eyes with me. She is too classy and too hot to act like the rest of these little party girls. I turn to my buddy who is kind of on the outside looking in and say, "Haha.. what does a girl do when her double A's run out!?" I've got a cracked up grin on my face and while making a small O face, I then make the fuck you sign with my middle finger and start jamming it back and forth at about waist high like I'm finger fucking.
I don't know where this shit comes from sometimes, buy my number one goal is to always have fun. I do know in the past I would have thought you couldn't do this. The other girls are too drunk and party flakes to notice, but HB10 black girl lights up! "Hahaha... I heard that! You're a naughty boy!!!"
As the other girls break away she is grinning and laughing. We chat with the girls for a bit before letting the birthday girl know that we are leaving that my friend has to be to work early in the morning and she pouts like a little baby and bites me again. She begs and tells me to come back. Which since it is like 1 AM and the bar closes really doesn't mean anything.... unless. I let her know that's probably not going to happen.
I turn to HB10 black girl and let her know we just came back to say later and it was cool meeting her.. and to my surprise she opens up her little clutch purse and discretely hands me a card with her number on it before giving me a kiss and laughing as she points at me and says, "goodbye naught boy."
Since then I've done some recon and found out that HB10 black girl has a major fashion blog and online talk show about how to snag a rich older guy.
My eyes have been opened to 2 things:
1) VERY attractive elite women that come from/want money like either RICH GUYS with a pedigree OR guys that are honest, naughty, confident, and fun. The parallel in my mind was seeing the playboy model, because she is from an affluent family and when I picked her up in the past it was a weird night where I was the same.
2) Don't fear the camera. When someone asks you to take a photo you can create an opportunity. I had some promoter friends that would promote a club and walk around taking photos. One night I got drunk and grabbed my promoter friends camera and started walking around the latin club saying, "Pho-To, Pho-To!!" to all the hot girls. I learned in 15 minutes that was 100% of his social proof. While that's different I'd just suggest that you ignore the old school pickup advice that taking a photo for someone is a DLV. Some of it is just bad advice. It's an opportunity!
“I pity them greatly, but I must be mum, for how could we do without sugar and rum?”
"Put a little Malibu on it.."
“If you keep on drinking rum, the world will soon be quit of a very dirty scoundrel”
