The most popular headshot photography background by far. It's bright, happy, and never goes out of style. It's great that white background headshots can also blend in with a webpage who's background color is also white, so it looks like the people are cut out and sitting directly on the website.

Graduated Grey

One of the most current and cutting edge backgrounds for corporate photography today. It's sleek and gives a more elevated and established look. This is by far Kristina's favorite background to use.

Conveys a professional edge. Great for tech company headshots who want to show an advantage over their competitors. When shooting headshots on a black background, Kristina will always add a rim light to the back of the subject to separate them from the black color. This is a sign of a high level, professional headshot photographer. If the photographer does not include this light, the person will look like they are blending in with the background.

Light Grey

A very attractive neutral headshot background that is very popular. This timeless look is good for any type of headshot. One of it's main highlights is that it won't take any attention away from the subject in the headshot.
