Shuttered Deals: A Black Friday Tale from the Quiet Quarters of a Press and PR Photo Agency

As I, Hamlet, the managing director of United National Photographers, sit here in the vast quiet of our office, I’m reminded that the pulse of our photo agency lies not within these walls today, but out there with our freelance photographers. They are the ones out in the field, lenses at the ready, capturing moments for press and PR that keep the heart of our enterprise beating. Our editorial team, the unsung heroes who usually curate these captured slices of life, have momentarily traded their critical eye for the thrill of the Black Friday hunt.

Hence, with our freelancers diligently working on commissions, our editorial staff has granted themselves a reprieve – a lunch hour stretched into an afternoon, perhaps even a day for some, to navigate the sea of sales. “Shop till you drop,” they said, a mantra for the day, leaving their usual posts for the promise of once-a-year deals. It’s an unusual quiet that’s settled over UNP – a calm sea after a bustling storm of activity.
I remain, the sole guardian of this silent sanctum, musing over the dedication of our field photographers who continue the work uninterrupted, their commitment unwavering even as the retail world turns upside down with discounts and deals. Perhaps next year, we at UNP might just ride the wave of Black Friday, offering our own deals. But for now, I await the return of my team, eager to hear of their exploits and to welcome back the familiar symphony of our bustling office life.
