Virtual Headshots: Best Headshots for Remote Teams & Employees

We live in a virtual world now (for better or worse). There's a good chance you work virtually on a remote team, and you may have never met any of your teammates in person before.

Your company, department, and team members might only know you by your virtual headshot—the one you use for your email profile, Slack, business directory, and social media. That one.

Your virtual headshot says a lot about you, and often, it's the first impression you make with strangers. Are you happy with the impression you're currently making with yours?

Regardless, the days of coordinating schedules with your team for a full photo shoot and traveling to a photographer's studio are long gone. Whether you're updating your headshot as a solo employee or part of your team's collective efforts, you can now use virtual headshot sessions to streamline and simplify the process.

But what exactly is a virtual headshot, and why are they becoming a go-to for companies with remote teams? Good questions—we have answers.

Below, we'll walk you through everything you need to know about virtual headshots for remote teams and employees to capture the perfect professional look from the convenience of your own home.

What Is a Virtual Headshot?

Virtual headshots are taken remotely (often with just a smartphone or a webcam) instead of in a traditional studio or with a photographer. Taken correctly (and with the right tools), these headshots deliver the same professional quality and polish you'd expect from an expensive headshot session.

Thanks to AI generator tools (like Aragon.ai), you can take virtual headshots for your teams and employees from anywhere in the world. Our AI tool does the hard work to edit, polish, and adjust your headshots to meet whatever criteria you want:

  • Wardrobe: Try on multiple outfits to see which suits you best.
  • Style: Go for that classic professional look or spice things up for a creative style.
  • Background: Swap between plain, textured, and fun backgrounds—from a sleek office interior to an urban brick wall.
  • Poses: Keep things cool and natural, or get creative with different angles, nods, and subtle arm movements.

And all you have to do is upload a few of your favorite selfies. Seriously, that's it.

Why Choose Virtual Headshots vs. Traditional Photoshoots?

You meet with your team online, chat with them online, work with them online—so why not take your virtual headshots online? Here's why a virtual headshot is the better option in today's modern work environment:

  • Cost-Effective: Save your budget Virtual headshots cut out hefty photographer fees and studio costs. Plus, no money wasted on wardrobe changes or travel costs.
  • Convenience: Take your virtual headshots when and where you want—be it your cozy home office or that quaint little park bench. No need to herd your remote team to a studio.
  • Flexibility: Early bird or night owl, it doesn't matter. Virtual headshots don't care about the clock. Get it done on your time.
  • Branding: Keep your company's look on-brand and consistent. Virtual setups let you customize everything to fit your brand, down to the background and outfits.
  • Speed: Virtual headshots give you lightning-fast turnaround times. When you use Aragon.ai, you get your headshots in minutes rather than days or weeks.
  • Scheduling: Forget playing diary Tetris to get everyone in the same place at the same time.
  • Tech: Advanced AI does the heavy lifting, adjusts lighting, tweaks backgrounds, and even makes sure your tie is straight (do you think we didn't notice?).

How to Take Virtual Headshots for Remote Teams and Employees

Fortunately, taking virtual headshots is relatively simple, especially when you use an AI headshot generator like Aragon.ai. It'll take care of all the nitty-gritty work—you just need to get on the same page with your team on style, timelines, and consistency.

Here's how to make it happen:

1. Choose Your Virtual Headshot Style

Before you send out everyone to get their virtual headshots, get everyone on the same page. Decide on the style that'll fit your team, department, and overall company vibe.

Do you want that sleek, professional look? How about something more creative? Want clean, crisp backgrounds or something outdoorsy?

You're the boss. You get to decide. Just make sure everyone understands your vision.

2. Schedule a Virtual Shoot Day (or Week)

Humans are creatures of habits and schedules. If you never set a day (or week) to take your virtual headshots, it might never happen. Go ahead and choose a time or deadline for your remote team to get their headshot done.

It'll only take a few minutes, but a little pressure never hurt anyone.

3. Take Your Pictures

Each remote team member just needs to take a few pictures of themselves. Selfies, face shots, shoulder-ups—all of them work great. They might not even need to take new ones if they have up-to-date images of themselves they like.

Don't worry too much about the quality or lighting. Of course, better input always helps with better output, but Aragon.ai knows how to turn lemons into lemonade.

4. Let AI Work Its Magic

Sit back, relax, and let Aragon.ai do its thing. Our AI headshot generator will fine-tune the quality, outfits, lighting, and backgrounds to help you get the perfect virtual headshot.

5. Select Your Favorite Virtual Headshots

We'll give you plenty of options to choose from to find your perfect virtual headshot. Once the whole team is finished, you'll have a collection of professional-quality headshots for your remote team—without all the hassle and costs of traditional headshot sessions.

Aragon.ai vs. Other Virtual Headshot Generators

When it comes to virtual headshots, not all solutions are created equal. Do a quick Google search, and you'll see what we mean.

Yikes.

Here's how Aragon.ai is different:

  • Realism: While other tools might leave you with headshots that look overly edited or eerily like a wax figure, Aragon.ai focuses on realism. You won't look like a floating head on a photoshopped background. Promise.
  • Backgrounds: Ever seen those virtual headshots where the background looks like it was slapped on as an afterthought? We know the scene—awkward edges, clashing colors, and just plain weird. Aragon.ai uses sophisticated algorithms to integrate backgrounds smoothly.
  • Subtle Polish: There's a fine line between polishing up a headshot and turning it into a portrait of the Uncanny Valley. Unlike other tools that might overdo facial retouching (yes, creepy is the word), Aragon.ai applies enhancements subtly. We aim to enrich your features, not mask them.
  • Cost: Why pay more for less? Some virtual headshot generators can be surprisingly pricey, especially considering the often mediocre results. We deliver quality at an affordable price point.
  • Ease of Use: We believe that taking a virtual headshot shouldn't require a tech wizard. We keep it downright simple and easy. Seriously, it's hard to screw our process up.
  • Versatility: Corporate look, creative vibe, edgy professional—we've got you covered. We're a one-stop shop for all your virtual headshot needs.

The proof is in the pudding (or the headshot), and we put our money where our mouth is. If you don't love your headshots, we'll refund your purchase—simple as that, no questions asked.
