Rick Hamilton Photographer – RHpic.com
Huntingdon County has been the home and inspiration for me as a photographer and photography. As a kid, I helped one of my cousin in his darkroom. I believe that was the first experience with a camera that I remember. I loved it, but the cost of creating a darkroom at 10 years old was out of the question. When I was I fell in love with the photography again, while watching other photographers at events where I was playing music. As a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, I had some knowledge of the camera but a lot more of composition and what a good painting (or photo) should look like.
As I was the DJ for countless weddings, I would see the photographers leave when I thought all the fun was staring. The dancing. I decided to get an Canon 7D and start shooting. To learn how to use the camera I watched, and I still watch countless numbers of youtube.com videos trying to learn, get better, and make clients love their photos. I’ve also attended lighting workshops in New Jersey and Philadelphia which has helped me immensely. I am always looking to learn from other photographers or share something they may ask of me. The photography business these days is VERY competitive. I believe you have to go above and beyond with everything you do for the client. To make not only great pictures but a great experience.
Please feel free to contact me with any further questions that you may have. I would be happy to talk with you and make arrangements to make beautiful photos. I love shooting senior portraits, maternity, engagement or corporate photos, in fact, it is a rare moment in which you would catch me without a camera. Wedding photos, senior portraits, maternity photos, engagement photos, family photos, newborn and baby photos, pet photos or just about any other photography needs.
