Photo subjects should be in focus and free of clutter. Subjects should be somewhat distant from their background to create a soft/out-of-focus background feel. This is the photograph’s depth of field.
Subjects should be positioned to either the left or right side of the frame and are shown from the waist up or closer. Do not flip the image horizontally in layout. Only in extreme circumstances is this permitted.
Permission must be obtained from student models who appear in photographs intended for marketing and advertising purposes. Download the Model Release Form located under Marketing and Communications on the intranet and have the model complete and return it to you before taking the photo(s).
While no cost is associated with sharing SCC photographs, they cannot be released to the public until they have met their primary purpose (i.e. printed materials, Facebook, website, etc.).
The Marketing and Communications Department’s photography services are free of charge and include portrait, event and general marketing. Download the Marketing and Communications Work Request Form from the intranet and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver to ADM 1121 to request photography services.
