Since the beginning of 2015 we have been scheming about how we can expand the shop to better serve fashion, lifestyle and beauty bloggers who’s livelihood is in the online space. In the over-saturated blogging market it has become increasing difficult to set oneself apart as both professional and a trusted source of quality information in the industry. I get the enormous pleasure of creating commercial quality styled stock images that help bloggers and businesses communicate just that! Our new beauty stock images and makeup stock images are a part of a new styled stock catalogue launching this week and is one of my favorites to date. Today we are starting with a super fun makeup brush stock image series that will be followed later this week with the launch of a stunning and fabulously colorful makeup image collection! Think rich lipsticks in every hue, and saturated eye shadows, Oh my!
We have seen an enormous response from small business who choose to use SC Stockshop across their branding platforms to set themselves apart, communicate quality and increase reader interaction through stunning and consistent imagery and we are SO very excited to be directing our energy over the next few months toward providing a stunning catalogue of the highest quality styled stock images that will help bloggers to represent their brand with the same visual flawlessness that they see in the brands that they wear and write about.
These images are not the low resolution generic “stock” images that bloggers often have to shoot themselves or find online to include in their posts. These are high resolution images meant to be incorporated as an essential part of the bloggers brand and used across all web platforms.
So how do you use styled stock photography effectively as a blogger?
- Here are a few ways that other successful bloggers like Whippy Cake are using styled stock from the SC Stockshop
- You Tube channel image headers
- Blog headers like ours above!
- Custom website buttons
- Newsletter headers
- Blog post headers
- Instagram announcements such a new posts on the blog
- Online shops like Scarlet & Gold Shop
- Twitter backgrounds like ours!
Hopefully you are seeing the possibilities and starting to get excited about how you can incorporate styled stock into your brand. I highly recommend taking a spin around Whippy Cake’s site to see how she uses her SC Stockshop images!
If you are interested in using styled stock with a tablet or computer screen we have an excellent tutorial here. It can also be as easy as screen grabbing what you want to share and overlaying in onto a tablet or computer screen as seen below.
If you are interested in how you can overlay flat paper products like notecards and prints onto styled stock desktops we have a great tutorial here!
And I can’t leave without giving you a tiny peek at what is coming to the shop later this week. Ah!
