I will forever be a supporter of non traditional corporate head-shots.
Do head-shots always need to be taken with a solid background?
In my opinion, not at all! I can always offer classic studio style corporate shots, but I LOVE doing on location head-shots. It tells your customers more about YOU and your business. It shows that there are real people just like them behind your brand.
Why would I get professional head-shots taken?
Most companies have an “about me” section of their site that includes images of the corporate staff. Anyone who works in any professional field should have an updated head-shot for social media (this is REALLY IMPORTANT for Linked-In) and for any websites. It takes you from just another employee to someone who takes their craft seriously.
