Create content like a pro

You will need to learn how to create content like a pro if your heart is set on becoming a successful cam model.

Camming and content creating go hand it hand. Being able to create exceptional content like a pro will enhance your profile as a cam model.

It will also open up a residual income stream to make money while you sleep.

The success of content creation always hinges on the quality and presentation of the content.

Content is digital media in the form of photos, videos and audio files. These files are created to share to followers on social media, cam sites and content creator (‘fans’) pages.

Content can be custom made for specific fans who wish to purchase content that is personalised for them.

It has other purposes such as generating instant income or for promotional purposes such as fan signs. Content is also useful for sending followers to cam model profiles.

Content can be monetised in various different ways depending on which platform hosts the content and which options they offer.

Cam models make content of an adult nature. This ranging from lingerie, bikini, topless or implied nude to porn star style X-rated.

All models should create content like a pro. Period.

I’ve seen countless content thought my years in the industry. I’ve also created tonnes of content personally.

What defines successful content in terms of quality, engagement, populatory and sales, will be laid out here.

I have seen high definition content that looks professional selling like hot potatoes on a cold day; verus content that is produced with a low definition appearance or heavily filtered, with zero to few ‘likes’ and not many subscribers.

What this tells me, is people are far more likely to invest in high quality content therefore the onus is on models to do their best to deliver the most pleasing results.


A winning photo or video does not have to be shot and edited by a professional.

You can create top notch content on your own at home. I’m going to share my guide one how to create awesome DIY (do it yourself) sellable material.

Before you start, obtain a good standard digital camera or smartphone with high definition (HD) camera.

You can pop into any electronics store and ask for some advise. Alternatively, research on the internet for some devices within budget.

If using a smartphone the camera needs to provide a clear and sharp image using inverted camera mode. It’ll also need to contain a timer feature.

The camera view turns around in this mode. You can see yourself and pose to take images using the timer until you’ve got the shots you’re happy with.

Styling should always be on point for making content. Present yourself well. You can master makeup, hair and outfit at home with practice. Watch personal styling tutorials because this is super helpful. You Tube has thousands, just have a look around there for ideas and choose a style you love.

With LVE Models I am happy to offer advice based on what best flatters an individual, taking into account what they wish to achieve. It pays to have an eye for the small details like colour coordinating and accessories.

Remember: the content will be made available for people to purchase. You therefore have to love the way you look and be confident with content creating. Do a few test snaps before running the full shoot or video to help you judge if the style feels right.

As with camming, the content shooting area should be clutter-free and well organised. Cast a critical eye over the background and remove anything that looks like it does not belong.

The more simple the background better because he subject matter (i.e. the person) should be the focus.

Appealing content requires excellent and appropriate lighting for the theme. As a general rule this must be bright, clear and focussed.

Avoid dark and dull unless the aim is to create black and white images or something in a dark theme.

Whatever the theme, conflicting light sources are never advisable. An example is using a lamp to light part of the room, with a window in the background.

This floods in full or partial daylight which does not blend well with the artificial lighting. As a result, light looks uneven in the room, casting shadows where not wanted.

For this reason I advise using either all natural bright lighting (full daylight), or powerful artificial lighting with curtains closed.

The ideal scenario for content creating as well as camming is to front and black light a room. This is because this method throws the light around evenly. It also minimises the risk of shadowing.

A powerful floor-standing ringlight is perfect for this purpose, something like this Neewer ringlight. If you want to be super pro, get two – one to frontlight and one to back the room.

Neewer Ringlight for camming and content creating

Angles always define how in-proportion a person looks in the produced image. The closest part of the body to the camera is always accentuated in size.

A camera at eye level is most flattering for head and bust shots. This is because the end result is they appear in normal proportion.

A low down angle shooting the body upwards makes the bottom half look big and the head look small. This is not flattering.

Tip: Trying out different camera angles with various poses is a useful way to learn about which poses and angles flatter.

Have fun with this, it is all part of learning to how to create content like a pro!


Know which orientation of the camera is required for which purpose. The two types of camera view are orientation are landscape and portrait.

Landscape is with the camera or smartphone laying on its side in horizontal rectangle view. This orientation is the favourite for shooting videos to upload to cam sites, content pages and sites like You Tube.

Landscape: where the smartphone is laying on its side. This is the best orientation for shooting laying body shots. You see the whole body in the camera view.

Portrait: where the smartphone is used upright. This creates the image or video in a vertical rectangle view. This is the ideal format for shooting social media posts, reels and stories.

Portrait is the popular choice for creating full body images where the model is standing up, or waist up shots.

If the aim is to monetise the content, shoot it like a pro. Mirror selfies may be fine for casual snaps for social media, but they don’t usually sell well.

Create professional-looking selfies using a ringlight with smartphone holder.

If you don’t have a ringlight with smartphone holder:

  • Prop the smartphone up a shelf or other surface.
  • Position it in the right orientation and angle.
  • Set the inbuilt timer to 10 seconds to allow time to get into your position or pose.
  • Let your phone shoot you as though you have someone else clicking the button!

Use this method to get as many shots or video takes as you like, then pick your ‘money shot!’

Try out different poses and facial expressions because this is how to gain experience! Finding what works best with your persona will help you grow a strong identity as a content creator.

Many of the modern HD smartphones these days have a ‘portrait’ function built into the camera. This is certainly the case with iPhones.

It is a superb feature which enables the user to take professional quality images with natural or studio lighting, applied at source. Minimal editing required!

POV is ‘Point Of View’ – a style of shooting very popular in the porn industry. You’ll see tonnes of POV videos on any porn site that offers performer content. POV involves the creator holding the camera for close-ups, showing different angles.

They can show their intimate parts and all the action up close for an explicit result for the viewer. POV content is simple to create at home, however these shots should still be high definition to sell.

The risk with POV shooting is the outcome appearing poor quality and out of focus. The trick is to keep the hand holding the smartphone still and don’t hold it too close. If it is to close to the subject matter, the camera will constantly be trying to refocus.

As a result, movements create video that looks blurred in places.

Bear in mind that t he higher quality the smartphone camera, the better the result when shooting POV.

POV is best used for specific purpose. X-rated creation is fine, but not all video shooting. An overkill of POV videos can look amateur, which defeats the objective of achieving professional-look content.

A combination of professional-looking photos and videos combined with a little made-well POV shows good variation.

Shooting POV content is fun to experiment with and helpful for discovering a model’s most flattering angles!

NEVER USE FILTERS. This is super whack.

The biggest content faux-pas is shooting pics and vids through third party filter apps.

Snapchat snaps for example, whilst these may be fun for Snapchat, look amateur on content creator pages.

My pet hate is seeing these hosted as content to purchase on webcam sites. Second to model casting applications with Snapchat snaps attached instead of photos showing how the applicant looks in real life. These we instantly reject.

Filters with heavy effects do no justice for the creator or the viewer as the definition is always poor.

They also present a misleading representation of the model.

Be patient with content creating and take time to get it right. This will pay its dividends.

We live in the era of digital content where it is quick and easy to retake images several times over. Thanks to the digital age we can now view our photo creations instantly.

There is no harm in shooting the same pose or video scene five times, even ten or more. This is exactly how the professionals do it and only the best shot gets the upload.

Practice makes perfect and the more you shoot, you’ll get to know and love your best angles. With experience, self-shooting feels natural.

The emphasis should be on quality, not quantity.

Posting one or two exceptional photos or videos for sale will see greater traction than twenty poor quality ones which never get purchased.


The icing on the cake of creating content like a pro is editing content like a pro.

If you have a high quality HD cam with editing settings, you’re well on your way to create content like a pro. Settings such as exposure, contrast, definition and vibrancy are there for you to tweak. There is nothing to stop you creating images of magazine quality. You can do it!

Follow the general rules of bright but not over-exposed, good colour vibrancy and well balanced contrast. High clarity (definition) for the best results.

For inspiration, look at any social media pages of content creators who have significant following. You’ll see they all present high quality content.

Many will have their content professionally edited. There are however many options for photo and video editing including free tutorials on Google and You Tube.

Type into Google search “best free photo editing software” or “best free video editing software.” Tag in your device (iPhone, Android, Mac for example) and you’ll get suggestions of ones you can try. Most apps do free trials.

When posting quality content, post with a caption to engage the fans. Keep this relevant and invite interaction. Ask for feedback and take note of how people respond, then respond back.

User response indicates whether they enjoy your content. You need to know if they are keen to see more of the same, or if you should tweak things.

Always think how you can make your content more pleasing to your fans by listening to what they say. Then view from their perspective.

If all you want is ‘likes,’ then post away and don’t worry to caption. BUT – be aware that images without captions don’t gain traction, nor do they offer direction for future posts.

Engagement, along with the high quality output, is the key to create and sell content like a pro. This gives followers a chance to know the personality behind the content and feel they’re a part of them.

When fans feel connected with the person, they are more likely to stick around and keep paying.

For content you wish to monetize on mass, you’ll need a creator platform that does everything you want it to do.

Think about whether you need it to host your content, bring you potential subscribers, or both.

Many of the big creator platforms offer a high end service. The features are excellent and these sites are well-suscribed.

On the downside they have very limited ways of sending potential customers (if any at all). Neither do they promote every individual who signs up.

This means as a creator you will do all the hard work promoting your page to bring yourself (and the platform) new business.

Bear in mind the platform will then take commission for this privilege.

Promoting is a constant tedious task after taking so much time create content like a pro. These sites don’t make it easy for their creators to sell the content they host!

Listen up: Unless you have a significant social media presence (I’m talking hundreds of thousands or millions of followers), it is going to be a hard hustle to gain subscribers.

Be aware, especially if new to the industry with no following to promote your content page to; a whole bunch of followers are not about to appear from nowhere and subscribe to your page.

Some adult webcam platforms have their own in-house content creator pages. This is a no-brainer option if you have no social media presence and want to sell content.

The webcam platform facilitiates performers to meet potential content subscribers based on the traffic driven to the chat rooms.

If the aim is to cam and do content, this setup is the ideal scenario and offers multiple ways to not only drive sales to both areas, but keep members engaged under one roof.
