Dear Ms Rama
Re: In-house Photographer position
I am writing to apply for the position of In-house Photographer at Your House, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
I am a highly organised and motivated professional photographer with a wealth of experience in a range of photographic styles and services, including real estate photography, commercial photography, travel photography, weddings and portraits.
For the past two years I have been working as a freelance photographer, working on a wide range of projects for advertisers, magazines, real estate agencies, publishers and individual clients. I have a great deal of experience in retouching, editing and uploading photographs for online publishing, as well as preparing photographs for print production.
Prior to freelancing, I worked for renowned real estate firm MJ Chooker, where I photographed properties for their website and for print. I also photographed and prepared marketing material and played a significant role in the redesign of the company website.
I pride myself on my ability to make the most of every photo, to be creative and resourceful in my approach and to have a keen eye for lighting and detail. I am well accustomed to working to tight deadlines, and working multiple jobs at once. I am also fully qualified, with a Diploma of PhotoImaging, and I have all my own equipment and transport.
I would love the opportunity to use my skills to create arresting, eye-catching images for Your House as In-house Photographer. To see samples of my work, please see my online portfolio at thelensman.com.au.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
Dear Mr. Jack,
I was excited to learn of the photographer position available with your magazine and hope you will consider me for the position. I have eight years of experience working as a photographer for the local newspaper and would love to move into magazine work. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography and tons of artistic ability.
My love of photography began early on while I was a preteen. In high school I won multiple competitions in photography and my experiences led me to major in it in college. My years of work have allowed me experience with all types of lenses and cameras and I understand how a picture can convey more meaning than words are able to.
I am highly creative and artistic and my excellent eye can be demonstrated with my work. My photographs are often featured on the newspaper’s front page and I have responded to countless story sites to capture the images for the public. I always meet deadlines and am very organized.
I would love to join your magazine as a photographer. In addition to my resume, I have enclosed a portfolio of my work. Please call me soon at (555)987-1234 to schedule an interview.
