Capturing the diverse, changing landscape of the modern workforce

Photography overview

Our photography depicts a rich tapestry of people and situations made possible by Citrix’s innovative technologies.

Our style feels approachable, yet aspirational, illustrating what it looks like when people are untethered from their desks and reaping the benefits of widened horizons. Our photos are always inclusive, featuring people from every walk of life, every level in an organization, and every ethnicity, age, gender, and lifestyle.

Our approach embodies three core components: people, places, and possibilities.

People—natural environment

Images of people should feel authentic, optimistic, and candid, framing a real moment in time. We use natural light, in natural settings, wherever people work—from factories and fields to home offices and healthcare facilities.

We capture anyone who benefits from Citrix technology and conveys the individuality, diversity, and reality of our customers.

People—in studio

This approach is reserved for photographing actual Citrix customers, partners, or employees. Don’t use stock photography for studio portraits.

Even in a controlled studio environment, the goal is to capture an authentic moment in time, evoking a true sense of an individual’s personality. Facial expressions should be natural, not stiff or overly serious, and backgrounds should be neutral.
(The examples below are stock imagery but successfully convey our studio style.)

— Approachable
— In the moment
— Natural
— Sincere


A flexible office space, out in the field, or even at home—the modern workplace can be anywhere. The places we feature in our photography go far beyond the sterile cubicle to those that are made possible when people work with Citrix technology.

The environment should feel natural, not staged or overly styled. It should be aspirational but also portray achievable habits for future workers.

— Natural light, unique composition
— Authentic subject matter
— Unique camera point of view
— Space around subject
— Modern work environment
— Simple, uncluttered image
— Interesting color range (depth of field)


When we work with Citrix technologies, we get space back in our lives—space to explore an infinite number of possibilities.

Our photography captures a range of activities that feel fresh and invigorating, like cycling, surfing, meditating, or visiting inspiring places. It conveys a sense of energy and lightness, symbolic of the freedom that Citrix makes possible.

— Outdoors, active
— Open space
— Natural daylight
— Editorial

— Clean, uncluttered composition
— Natural light
— Sense of space

Things to avoid

— Staged
— Fabricated situation
— Wide angle
— Fish eye
