About this pro

For years I have photographed real estate and architecture in the Washington, DC metro area. Working with up and coming, as well as well established brokers and agents to create an outstanding marketing portfolio for their listings and their profile.

Every project gets my keen attention to detail and is approached the same: Like a million-dollar property. Not just shooting a space with a super wide angle, but truly reflecting the space and its atmosphere. Often I create little vignettes to let viewers imagine themselves sitting in the chair by the window reading a book, soaking in that big tub, or cooking a fab meal on the 5-burner stove...

My ideal is to create long lasting working relationships with my clients.

    Trish is wonderful! Our residential real estate team has been using her for years. She is professional and personable, is able to do quick photo turn arounds and special shoots, and our clients love her! Highly recommend for your photography needs.

    I had seen Trish Hamilton's photography while in Europe, and happily bought one of her large artistic photos to hang in my home. A few months ago I was very excited to hire her to take photographs of my rental property in Northern Virginia. The house was not renting as quickly as the market suggested it should. Trish took a set of amazing photos, showing the property at it's finest. Within 36 hours of Trish's photographs going on-line, the property was rented. The property manager said that the speed of rental was directly connected to the wonderful photographs. I am exceptionally happy with both the service and the quality of work that Trish Hamilton Photography has provided, and I would not hesitate to recommend her talent to anyone looking for amazing photographs.

    The qualities that comprise a great professional photographer must be so much more than just a keen eye, solid equipment, and technical expertise. They must also include humanistic qualities like amiability, empathy, and flexibility. Trish Hamilton has proven herself again and again to be graced with those necessary qualities and more, making her a truly great professional photographer. In addition to the many times we’ve successfully hired her for her exceptional real estate photo work––helping us get top dollar for our clients––Trish was the one to call to document the circumstances and excitement of our company’s grand opening ceremony in 2014. Her wonderful photos from that event have allowed us to experience the joy and pride of that memorable day over and over again. Trish can photograph anything––whether it’s commercial photography or insightful, heartwarming portraits––her photos will truly delight your eyes and other senses.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

First, we will go over the specific photographic needs to determine the scope and cost of the assignment. We will sign a contract explaining terms and conditions, and get to working. For real estate shoots, my turn-around is usually between 24-36 hrs.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Born and raised in Germany, I began a 3-yr apprenticeship in photography after graduating from secondary school. After these three years of hands-on training, I graduated as photographer craftswoman.

Since then I continue my training constantly to keep up with new technology and trends.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My real estate pricing list will be posted shortly, but rest assured it is within the standard pricing here in the Washington, DC metro area.

All other assignments are priced on the scope of the project and the usage needs of the client. 


How did you get started in this business?

Long story short:

My son was diagnosed with cancer and I needed to have flexible hours, so I signed up to work for an agency providing real estate photography. Disappointed with their back office support for my clients and myself, I quit their service once it was clear my son was going to die. After his death, I started my own business -basically in his honor, with the support of my clients. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

I work with up and coming real estate agents, with well established agents, architects, interior designers, builders and developers, as well as contractors and owners.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My husband's job took us overseas for a few years. Only last August did we return home. To have some of my old clients come right back to hire me is the biggest boost of confidence and the greates compliment I could ask for.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

When looking for a photographer, I advise to look at their portfolio first. Before pricing. If you know you will need a photographer continuously, find one with whom you can establish a good working relationship. And consider whether these photographs will be part of your portfolio to market your own business.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Licensing. Please ask about licensing rights and copyrights: What do you want to use the images for? Social media? Marketing a listing? Advertisement?

That would be the most important aspect.
