What is the difference between a backdrop and an environmental background?

Below are visual examples of the different background options you can select for your portrait or headshot. Please reference these visual examples when communicating your desired option.

When choosing a background for your portrait you will want to answer the following questions:
1. What will I be using this photo for? Print or web? Editorial article or profile pic?

2. How do I want to present myself as a professional? Would it be appropriate to be in my work environment, a neutral environment, or would it be best to have a clean backdrop background?

Feel free to contact me to discuss these questions and more.
