Environmental Portrait

According to Wikipedia… an environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject’s usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject’s life and surroundings.

It is important to have a good photo of the person, but the background and objects surrounding the person is even more important as it paints a picture (portrait really) of you.
