Traditionally they are done against a non-descript background as to not distract from the subject, but a more modern application is to use the scene to convey information about the subject. Branding Photography is a trendy way of discussing a headshot.
The short list is you, me, actors, politicians, models, musicians, online daters, authors, business professionals, anyone on social media, and everyone.
You may think you've got an old photo from your cousin's wedding lying around that will serve your LinkedIn profile just fine; until it crops above your sleeveless dress and you look unclothed (oops!). Or you may think a selfie from your cell phone and a filter serves you; but be honest with yourself: you can see through those filters and they annoy you just a little when you're looking at someone else's. A headshot is a technically perfect photo of you where the lighting is meticulously crafted to accent you. It is intentional.
Headshots are some of my favorite things to photograph.
