A Day in the Life of a Booker

Bookers, sometimes referred to as logistical magicians, are the organizational backbone of ehouse. Working with a large network of professionals nationwide, our resourceful team always ensures you receive a convenient appointment date for your services. Taking weather, travel time, and the best local professional for the job into account, you can put your feet up and leave all the planning to us!

We catch up with one of our most experienced bookers, Lucia Sanguinetti for a behind the scenes peek at what her day-to-day entails…

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself and how it ties in with what you do at ehouse?

A: I studied Mathematics at University, so problem-solving and having a strong attention to detail have always been my strongest suits. At ehouse I get to solve logistical problems daily while also talking to a variety of people nationwide.

Q: What does a typical day at ehouse look like?

A: It usually starts with checking emails and responding to client’s queries and I then have a list of orders to go through with the rest of the team using specialized custom software we have built for planning everyone’s diaries. We regularly check maps and weather forecasts from multiple sources to make sure that the appointments we offer are the most suitable. While arranging appointments, I’m always looking for ways to improve our software so that we can be more efficient for our clients.

Q: What is the work environment like?

A: The ehouse team is very tight-knit. Our office space is comfortable, social (we have a pool table and even BBQs on the terrace!) and motivational.

Q: What are the best and most challenging parts of working for ehouse?

A: The best part is the people that I work with! We are constantly learning from one another while having a lot of fun. What I like as well is that every day is different from the last so I never get bored!

We work with around 100 photographers around the UK and in liaising with a team of this size, problems can occur from sicknesses to broken down cars. It can sometimes be stressful juggling several issues at once, but that’s what having a great team is for and ultimately it is really satisfying when it all comes together!
