Is Having a Photo Rep (Agent) Essential as a Professional Photographer?

Photographer’s agent Annemiek ter Linden at Art + Commerce offices NYC.  One of the biggest agencies in the world who rep some of the best photographers out there.(don't call them they'll call you)

How big a role does the talent’s rep play in the hiring process?
Why do some creatives want a rep to provide a buffer between clients and artists?
Why do some creatives believe rep-free interactions foster the best results?

Here's a great post on this topic on Heather Morton's blog
