Buzz, buzz…It’s 7 AM Kristina. Time to get up and start the day. Dare I check my email before I do anything else? My fingers answer the question for me as my email is open almost as soon as my eyelids are. Numbers are in, the shoot in Florida is going well and the first round of illustrations are due in by 10 AM. Perfect. Everything is going as planned. Ok, time for coffee. I roll out of bed and get ready for the day, happily knowing that all is going smoothly so far this morning.

When The Lab first approached me to write a blog post titled “A Day in the Life of a Photography Agent” I thought it was a great idea. Well, it was great…until I actually sat down and chronicled my daily routine. My day to day is boring; it’s mostly filled with emails, estimates and therapy sessions with my photographers.
