They can also be used to establish your brand or encourage better communication. Many companies are finding creative ways to get the most out of employee headshots. If you answer yes to any of the question(s) below, corporate headshots may be a good addition to your online presence and client touch-points.
Showcasing corporate headshots on your website is a great way to introduce your team members to your clients. These photos are often the first touchpoint that a client will have with your team members. Therefore it is important that each image communicate a sense of professionalism.
