The world's most famous portrait photographer, Richard Avedon, used a white background almost exclusively for his most important work during his illustrious career. He loved the empty quality that forces the viewer to focus on the subject of the portrait for maximum connection. White simultaneously looks modern and timeless, and therefore cannot be dated to a specific era. Headshots on a white background communicate approachability, professionalism, and a clean sense of style. We recommend white background headshots for Boise businesses that want the maximum approachability and versatility out of their headshots. If you're looking for headshots that will help your business look cool or edgy, please check out our headshots on gray here.
