…tracing the transformation of corporate photography

The integration of corporate photography with IAM systems (Identity and Access Management) and the advent of biometrics have transformed the employee portrait’s role, emphasizing not just identity - but also security. With the rise of digital communication and social media, every employee now requires a high-quality digital portrait, intertwining their professional identity with broader corporate branding.

Eikonice has revolutionized corporate portraits

The evolution of corporate photography mirrors the dramatic changes in technology and society over the past few decades. From static, formal portraits to dynamic digital images integrated into advanced security systems, the transformation is profound. Eikonice is at the forefront of this shift, employing cutting-edge automation and AI to revolutionize how corporate portraits are managed.

The Origins of Corporate Photography

Corporate photography began as a tool for identification and branding, with portraits of executives and key personnel adorning the walls of businesses and published in annual reports. Initially, these images were crafted by professional photographers using film cameras, requiring significant skill in both shooting and processing the photographs. The distribution was limited to physical prints, reflecting the technological constraints of the time.

The advent of digital photography marked a significant pivot in corporate photography. Suddenly, images could be captured, edited, and distributed globally with unprecedented speed and minimal cost. The rise of the internet and social media platforms like LinkedIn further emphasized the need for every employee to have a digital portrait. This era saw a shift towards more casual and approachable corporate imagery, reflecting broader social changes towards informality and accessibility. 

Integration with IAM and the Advent of Biometrics

As digital landscapes evolved, so too did the need for robust security measures. Corporate photography found a new role within Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems, where employee portraits are used for identification and to enhance security protocols with biometric data. This integration demands greater precision and consistency in photographic quality, something that Eikonice’s automated solutions facilitate efficiently, ensuring GDPR compliance and safeguarding personal data.

We harnesses AI to automate the entire workflow of handling corporate portraits—from capturing to editing and uploading high-resolution images on all company platforms. This automation cuts costs, reduces the scope for human error, and ensures a consistent brand image across all digital platforms. The future of corporate photography likely holds further advancements in AI and machine learning, continuing to evolve the ways in which corporate identities are crafted and secured.
