We had the good fortune of connecting with Greta Gamble and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Greta, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
I really feel that my organization has gotten me far. It helps me remember the small details and stay prepared for whatever comes my way in the business. I write down absolutely everything not just in my phone but in a paper planner as well, and I also outline my days so that I can block out time for certain tasks and calls. Not only does this help HANA run smoothly, it helps my headspace as well so I know nothing is slipping through the cracks!

What should our readers know about your business?
Here And Now Agency is a photography studio founded by Paul Vu, focusing on photographing unique spaces around the world. Not only do we represent multifaceted photographers with backgrounds in architecture and interior design, but we offer high quality renderings as well. We’re still in our first year of business and learning a lot about what it takes to run a studio. It’s not easy, but we all support each other and we’re figuring it out together! We’re excited about upcoming residential and hospitality projects in 2021, and feel extremely grateful to still be busy with the world being the way it is today. Covid-19 has definitely made things challenging and pushed back a lot of projects, but we’ve remained flexible and put in place safety protocols so that we stay healthy on shoots. The number one lesson I’ve learned in this business this year is to be adaptable! Our agency pours our all into every project we do, we want to make sure that our clients are in love with the final images. Once it is safe to do so, we are very excited to travel and expand our studio outside of LA!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m very new to Los Angeles, I just moved from Seattle in December! Most of my friends are jealous of the weather, so I would definitely prioritize outdoor activities for their visit. We would wake up early and hit Runyon for sunrise, grab brunch at Lady Byrd, and then go to Malibu for the rest of the day and hang out at the beach. The rest of the week I would definitely want to take them to Manhattan Beach, Sugarfish for a sushi feast, and then go to West Hollywood for drinks in the evening. Hopefully by the time my friends can actually come visit me everything will be safer and start to open up again!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I am extremely grateful for Eunji Paula Kim and Paul Vu, my mentors. I have learned so much from them and they have continually supported me in my career! Kyle Goldberg has also been an amazing part of my new chapter in LA, and has introduced me to some lifelong friends.
