I don’t mean you have to go hug trees or protest landfills (though I support you wholeheartedly if that IS your thing). By “environment” I mean the immediate space around your body that shows up in a headshot or portrait. Studio shots with solid backgrounds are great — clean, spare, adaptable for multiple purposes. But sometimes, depending on your occupation, a little atmosphere can add oomph and authenticity. A realtor with the skyline as a backdrop, a writer at her desk, a physicist in the lab. Or, as in this shot, a chef in his restaurant.
