Dear [Mr./Ms./Mx.] [Hiring Manager’s Last Name],
My name is [Your Name] and I’m applying for the position of [position name] with your company as advertised on [company website/LinkedIn/job board website]. I was delighted to see the job opening as I’ve been following your company for the last few years and admire your direct approach to marketing.
I’ve been a freelance photographer for 7 years, beginning as an event photographer while pursuing my BA in Photography. As my true passion lies in photographing people, I transitioned into portrait photography upon completing my degree. I’ve spent most of the past 3 years shooting weddings, as well as portraits of children, families, and pets. Some of my technical skills include:
- Familiarity with a wide array of professional cameras, lighting gear, and lenses
- Photo editing software, for which I have taken courses, with expertise in Adobe Photoshop
- Developing video shooting and editing skills
On a personal level, I’m a people person with a knack for getting smiles and making clients feel relaxed and comfortable. I’m reliable and capable in fast-paced environments, and I always deliver the finished product on time. When it comes to photo editing, I’m highly organized and pride myself on being extremely attentive to detail, with an eye for presentation.
I would like to invite you to view my online portfolio for a sense of the style and quality of my work at: [website]. Please give me a call at (xxx) xxx-xxxx; I would love to speak with you about how my photography can best suit your needs.
