White Background Headshot Examples

Is a white background good for headshots?

White backgrounds are an excellent choice for headshots as they provide a clean, timeless, and versatile backdrop that keeps the focus on the subject. They work well across various platforms, from professional profiles and corporate websites to marketing materials. White backgrounds also ensure consistency and can easily match any company’s branding, making them a popular choice for corporate photography.

Pure white backgrounds (like below) actually have a light on the background to make it pure white without any shadow or gradient so that if used on a white background website the edge isn’t visible. Without the light, the background would actually be a very pale shade of grey. Examples of this can be seen in our ‘grey background portfolio‘.
