Agency MJ: Five Years Anniversary

December 2013 marked Agency MJ's five-year anniversary. To honor this milestone, we asked Mollie Jannasch, Owner and Agent, a few questions about the history of the Agency:

When did you know you wanted to become an agent and what led to that decision?

Working at NYC Artist Agencies, Art + Commerce and Nice.  These amazing experiences helped me to identify that I had an interest in the business side of the photography industry.

How many artists were on your roster when you started out?

I started with three photographers and grew the business to include East and West Coast representation within the first year.

The best thing I did starting out was consult with industry professionals who have been in the trenches longer.  I reached out to Amanda Sosa Stone and Suzanne Sease, who co-wrote the book 'The Photographers Survival Guide.'

As a team, we worked on everything from setting business and marketing goals to scouting new talent.  I could not have done this without their initial guidance and direction.

What's your day-to-day like?

It is a mix each week. Everything from project conference calls, scheduling and booking assignments, and marketing events and portfolio shows.

What are some of the milestones you've reached in your first five years?

Shooting with some of the best agencies and talent in the industry - from booking Chelsea Handler to Fruit of the Loom to Publix Supermarkets, I am thrilled with all the opportunities and ways in which we have developed over the past five years!

We have had so many small and large triumphs along the way, we are so grateful for our talented roster.

I also want to thank my family and friends. Their support and inspiration has helped us blossom!
