Finding effective leadership images

Leadership means something different to everyone. When we think of leadership images, we often defer to professional settings — adults of all ages in corporate office settings. But leadership doesn’t end there. As you’re searching for images of leadership, it’s important to consider all the different ways leadership can be visualized to determine the best way to showcase a great leader.

To start, you’ll need to decide how literally you want to represent leadership in your photos. Do you want to showcase a business woman who is leading meetings, or would it be more impactful to your project to showcase a sports coach training his or her team to reach new heights? Another element to consider is if you’d like to portray an abstract symbol of leadership, such as someone climbing a mountain or leading their partner down a lengthy trail.

When deciding on the right image for your project, you’ll want to decide if highlighting the corporate route is the right fit. If so, Start by considering how you can best represent your organization. Your leadership pictures should reflect the diversity of your team — with a mix of people of all ages and backgrounds being given the chance to lead. Or you may want to editorialize your leadership photos, finding portraits of confident people that can represent great leaders in a more stylized way.

With Burst, you have thousands of royalty-free stock photos to choose from — all quick to download in full res format. Which means that once you find the right leadership images, it’s easy and cost-effective to start putting them to use! Time to start browsing.
