Conversations with Camara Hamilton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Camara Hamilton. 

Hi Camara, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I graduated from Suitland HS in 2014, I wasn’t very involved in extracurricular activities much in school but I’ve always had a glowing personality. I attended college at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore where my major was sociology however after facing some hardships and family issues I decided to drop out after about 2 1/2 years. From there I just came home to Suitland and started working a full-time job; that was in 2017 and over the years I grew bored of that job and started feeling like I needed to do more and break away from the environment I was in but I never knew what direction I should go in until I started modeling. My first shoot was in August 2020 and I just wanted to do something special for my birthday at first but being in that opposite environment was very refreshing and I loved being in front of the camera and I just found myself wanting to learn more. So honestly the pandemic was the perfect opportunity for me to do just that and still have the financial support so in April of this year I left my full-time position and started living more for myself. I began networking and trying to find photographers who wanted to collaborate with me and soon enough I’m in this whole community of creatives from there I started booking photoshoots. It started off with just one at Masscreations Multimedia Studio in Baltimore with the amazing Jerry Brown and he taught me so much in that one day and more importantly gave me the confidence to continue on my path with modeling. Since then, I’ve been extremely busy scheduling shoots left and right and I love it! I hope to continue on this journey and be able to represent high fashion brands and designers and become a known face in the modeling world. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been and easy journey, I’m still not finished and I’m sure there will be more obstacles in my future but I will always prevail. In modeling and just in being a female honestly, you always have to look out for predators and unfortunately, the modeling industry has plenty. There are many guys with cameras that want only want to shoot you if you’re barely clothed or not at all and that creates an unrealistic picture of what being a model is and gives the impression that, that’s what it takes to get noticed which is totally untrue. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am an international multi-published model; I specialize in commercial and fashion modeling. I am very proud of the international magazines that I have been featured in, in places like France. I believe what makes me different from others is my mindset and my attitude, I’m always very positive and I know I will be successful there is nothing that can stop me. I just see myself as such a strong woman and considering what I’ve been through in my life many would not be able to go on like I have, I know I have a purpose and I’m here to fulfill whatever that may be. 

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love the diversity in the city there are so many different people and things to do. I think sometimes Baltimore gets a bad rep from the things we may hear on news outlets and things of that nature but there’s good and bad everywhere.
