Headshot Photography Styles

Choosing the right headshot style to represent you

If you are looking for a new business headshot to represent you and your brand, its worth spending a little time choosing the right headshot photography styles for you and your brand. With headshots appearing on your own website and printed material as well as LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media, you want an image that will portray you and your brand in the best possible way. Of course there are millions of different styles of headshots. However, from the assignments that we have been commissioned for, the style tends to fall into a three distinct categories. Environmental, Abstract and Solid colour.

Environmental Headshots

Environmental headshots are becoming increasingly popular. Their fresh and modern feel is very welcoming in an age where our profiles appear throughout the web and printed media. Where your profile image is often the first impression a new contact has of you, environmental headshots have a very approachable feel.

Environmental business portraits are captured without the use of a studio background. We typically use your building, outside space or a key landmark to get fresh and vibrant headshots that convey your personality or corporate brand.  Whatever purpose you have for the images they have a natural and warm look and great impact. Environmental headshots can be for individuals or for teams and we come to a location thats convenient for you.

Working within your timeframe, we can capture a range of looks without moving very far and you can change outfits as much as you like if time allows. After our session, the images are placed on a gallery and the chosen images are edited and delivered by download very quickly.

Solid Background / Studio Headshots

With a clean background, studio look headshots are a versatile way of presenting yourself and your company. Whether the images are on your website, LinkedIn, Twitter or company documents, they provide a unified image across your company. For team or volume shoots, we bring the studio to you. This is a non intrusive set up that needs no more than a small meeting room size. For individuals, we have a number of options for the location of your shoot.

White is our most popular colour for studio look headshots. However we also shoot on black and grey or even your corporate colours if you like. With a unified look, studio headshots are great for businesses with a large number of staff or multiple locations who want to maintain the branding throughout all the team members images.

Abstract Background Business Headshots

Thankfully, abstract refers to the backgrounds that we use and not the style of headshots! We have a large variety of backgrounds that we can use for your headshots. Typically with warm tones, these business portraits a great portrait look with flattering lighting. We choose our abstract background incredibly carefully to give you a choice that will suit your brand and personality. Simple to erect in any location, abstract backgrounds like solid studio looks have the ability to be replicated throughout different locations and different times.This makes them great for companies with multiple offices or who want a consistent look for all new starters to the business.
