Almost anything can work as the background to a portrait, provided that background is properly blurred to emphasis the person in the photo. The only thing that matters is consistency; if you are having several people photographed, make sure the background is the same, as this looks great on your website.
It”s still surprising to me how much corporate portrait photography is almost exactly the same. The same backgrounds and the same poses, with very little additional processing of manipulation to make them more dynamic and exciting.
With just a little forethought and digital trickery, your portraits can be quickly improved to be much more engaging. As someone who takes on a average about 5000 portrait images annually, I would be delighted to make the process more creative and give you a more distinctive look to your staff images.
