i'd say they are useful categories which can be used or creatively challenged.

formal - deliberately set up, even posed
casual - a good shot of person/s, whom you didn't meet for the purpose of taking their portrait?

but many set-up shots (look at advertising) are designed to look 'casual'...

environmental - shows the environment which is related to the subject's life and reveals something more about it?
