What are editorial portraits?

I generally refer to editorial style corporate images as the kind of images you might typically see in a magazine. I believe they are images that have more space around the image, allowing for context of the environment. I have put a few examples on there to give you a feel of editorial style portraits.

I like this style of portraits as it allows for playing with composition and design.

These style of portraits would generally be used in corporate brochures, B2B magazines and publications.
