People come up with ideas, present them, shoot them and then bring them to me with a brief. I do the work and they give comments. Then we shoot it to client, and they give comments or approve the work. Then it goes to the studio (where I used to be) they put the images into mechanicals and it goes out to the world.

It's fun, loads of people around, good creative and you get to work with loads of different photographers on different projects. It's like freelancing, but you have to put on pants.
Sounds pretty nice... Hope to find something like that in Spain. I'm moving abroad to Spain next year. Hope my freelance experience would be enough in order to achieve a regular job there. I already have a regular job as freelancer, but I'm in the need of having a couple more or a regular job instead. I fear agencies because I'm very confortable editing in my home. I take a break when I want, kiss my gf, smoke a cigarette and keep working with my favorite music in the background. I'm wondering how much of this I should sacrifice in a regular job.
