We’ve been wanting to deliver Santa Clarita location photography services for a long time, and it’s finally here! Here is everything you need to know about our Cityscape sessions.
We’ve been having so much fun shooting our first SchlickArt Cityscape Professional Portrait sessions! We love the enthusiasm people have been bringing to the shoot. They are full of excitement to be captured in the city they call home. It’s been an absolute pleasure to take on this new project with our wonderful community.
We were happily surprised, as well, to see the city’s response. With each Cityscape shoot, The City of Santa Clarita and Westfield Valencia Town Center have shared our clients’ brand new Cityscape portraits on their social media channels, which was a welcomed gesture for our clients!
We wanted to share a little about our new Santa Clarita location photography session and give you a peek at our first set of gorgeous clients.
Why Offer Santa Clarita Location Photography?
SchlickArt Cityscape Professional Portraits, our take on Santa Clarita location photography, came about one day, as we were talking about our own attachment to this beautiful city. Even in the time we’ve called this community home, the streets of Newhall have undergone massive changes, and Valencia has grown into a hotspot of gorgeously designed urban vistas. From the landscaped greenery on Town Center Drive to the hip wood walkways and yellow building facades of Main Street, we noticed too much beauty to be missed.
Plus, this is home for so many of our clients — and so many influential professionals. This is a city of leaders who give back even more than they take, and we wanted their professional portraits to reflect that. We wanted to capture you in the city that started your business.
There was just one catch. How could we deliver the SchlickArt style and experience you expect — natural light and all — in an uncontrolled environment? Well, if you’ve ever met Lindsay, you know she loves a challenge.
Why Choose SchlickArt For Your Santa Clarita Location Photography?
Lindsay got to work on creating an outdoor headshots package that would allow her to capture the best light nature has to offer, as long as weather didn’t get too temperamental.
The first requirement? Capture the city’s most alluring light — 10 minutes after sunrise. Cityscape headshots sessions begin with the day, and currently, day breaks from 7 a.m. to 7:15 a.m.
While it’s an early, somewhat chilly morning, in the spring, the light is simply stunning. It radiates and bounces in a way that softens our flaws and highlights our color. Like nature’s illuminator, sunrise lighting creates a kind of playful light that comes across as warmth and passion in your final shots.
In addition to best lighting Mother Nature offers, our Santa Clarita location photography comes with the standard of posing instruction, on-set styling and silliness you expect.
How Do Our Outdoor Headshots Work?
Our outdoor headshots are similar to our signature in-studio sessions, with a few changes to optimize the conditions.
Currently, we are offering headshots on location at Westfield Valencia Town Center and Main Street in Newhall. Our Cityscape sessions are designed for urban locations only. While we’re not taking rural, woodsy or park locations at this time, we welcome urban location suggestions if they fall within a 5-mile radius of Valencia.
The session includes one outfit and a private photo reveal session at SchlickArt Studio scheduled for a later date, after your session.
Because an urban location doesn’t offer a space for hair and makeup, our Cityscape session requires that you arrive hair and makeup ready.
How Can I Use My Santa Clarita Location Photography?
Like our signature in-studio headshot session, we deliver three different crops of each photograph to help you maximize your visual branding power. To get the most flattering and engaging look, we pose from the entire body from head to toe, so no matter where we crop the photograph, it’s as flattering and enticing as a full-body shot. That enables us to create customized crops for each of your main marketing purposes.
- The Professional Portrait: A professional portrait captures you from your upper thigh to a few inches above your head. A longer shot, the professional portrait is best used for media, flyers, newsletters and blogging — anywhere you want to put your very best foot forward and take up space on the page or screen.
- The Headshot: A headshot captures you from just above the shoulder to a few inches above your head. The classic professional shot, this slightly smaller size is perfect for your business card, email signature or other spaces where you don’t have a lot of real estate to advertise your face and your brand.
- The Square: The square shot is just as it sounds — a perfectly square version of your headshot. Why? This is a standard crop size that evolved from the advent of social media. It can be used across platforms from Facebook and Instagram to LinkedIn.
