Studio Manager | Producer
As the studio manager at Ken Friberg Photography & Studio, Kristin Langerud is the first point of contact and correspondence internally and externally on behalf of the Director of Photography. She directs all traffic on both the photography and the rental side of our business. Her highly organized personality makes her an excellent master of the studio schedule and the complex components of producing a successful shoot.
She’s a results oriented team-player focused on managing studio and location productions. She's often called upon to pull together a crew from her list of talented professionals. She manages an up-to-date list of some of the best gaffers, food stylists, grips, photo assistants, digital techs, prop stylists, location scouts, set builders, wardrobe stylists, and hair/make-up artists.
On smaller productions she steps up to contribute and help clients navigate prop acquisition and styling, talent casting and negotiations, and production coordination that may be required.
Kristin is also a creative and entrepreneurial networker who monitors industry trends. She has diverse personal interests, an inquisitive nature when meeting new people, and a love of travel.
Kristin's art direction and graphic design management background provides her with the exact skill necessary to make your shoot a success.
