Corporate headshots are similar to those used by actors. These images are most often produced digitally and distributed electronically, though some companies still favor displaying a printed version. Lighting for corporate headshots is simple and nondramatic, but flattering. Traditional headshots are still taken in a studio setting, though shots "on-location" or "in-the-field" continue to increase in popularity. In both cases, backgrounds continue to be simple. Subjects are often shown head-to-midchest, or from head to just above the waist.

Corporate headshots serve a variety of purposes, including:

* Annual reports

* (Nonstandard) resumes

* Corporate catalogs, brochures and advertising collateral

* Company publications and websites, internal and external

* Press releases and other announcements

* Marketing materials

* Articles and newspapers
