Dear Mr. Green:

As an imaginative and passionate photographer with 3-plus-year track record of success in fashion and nature photography, I am applying for Photographer position at Faces Studio. I believe the talents you seek are well-matched with my qualifications.

A photographer’s job is much more than taking just pictures – and I understand this quite well. I have an inherent ability to realize and capture compositions to show the world what the human eye can sometimes not see. From doing fashion photography to capturing the beautiful world that nature has given to man, I have done it all. Understanding that a photographer nowadays needs to have a technical hold on things, I am comfortable operating photography equipment and related software that are used to process quality photographs i.e. Photoshop, Bridge and InDesign. Owing to my passion, I work continuously to learn new things in order to make my work professional.

My work experience, credentials along with my enthusiasm for quality work will help me make an immediate and valuable contribution to Faces Studio. My online portfolio and samples of my work can be seen on my blog at [blog address].

I look forward to meeting with you, Mr. Green, an will give you a call the week of November 20th to follow up on this letter. Meanwhile, I will be available at (000) 555-6666.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
