Just six months old, Tricia Jamiol Photography has made a splash in the area. The collaboration between Tricia Jamiol and Christina Fay, girlfriends, who both work full-time at Spurwink, took Jamiol’s love of art and Fay’s “type A personality” to create a business.
“Tricia has always wanted to make money out of her passion, which is art,” said Fay. “I come from a very long line of successful Fay women.”
“I needed art in my life some way or the other,” Jamiol said. Jamiol’s experience has been 12 years of photography in Massachusetts before moving up here.
Jamiol loves using black and white film and says one of her strengths is how she interprets light.
The business doesn’t have a physical studio, but they are willing to travel to anywhere in New England.
“We shoot on location to make use of all the beautiful places Maine has to offer,” Fay, who has lived in Windham for eight years, said.
The business offers digital photography with Photoshop editing. They shoot weddings, engagement shots, large conferences, portraits, pets, senior portraits, model shoots, commercial photography for rack cards, real estate or architecture, to name a few.
They are getting better at getting out there and talking about themselves, Fay said. They are a part of the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, are in a BNI networking chapter and use social media to interact with potential clients.
Being social workers has helped when a client is stiff or nervous about having his picture taken, Jamiol has been able to put him at ease.
Staying competitive and offering something a little different is important to Jamiol.
“We want to be known as a reasonably priced,” said Fay. To that, Tricia Jamiol Photography charges by the hour for weddings. “We believe in being flexible,” Fay said.
“Your memories and your photos are all you have left of that big day,” Jamiol said. Having the best and best value photographer is important, she added. They also offer pre-wedding consultations to get to know who they are shooting before the big day. They are excited to work with more gay, lesbian and transgendered couples.
“After meeting with them, I know what they want. I try to mimic that as best I can and put my own twist on that,” Jamiol said.
